02 Will give you an unlock code to unlock your iphone to all networks.

From 10 November, the iPhone can be unlocked for O2 customers in the UK.

Pay Monthly customers
Your iPhone can be unlocked at anytime free of charge. If you unlock your handset and place a non-O2 sim into it, you will still have to honour the remainder of the minimum term on your contract.

iPhone Pay & Go customers
Yes, you can unlock your iPhone for a one-off cost of £15. You'll pay for this from the money topped-up on your phone.

But if you unlock your iPhone less than 12 months after you bought it, we'll take off the free Web & Wi-Fi Bolt On (that we added for the first 12 months). You can buy a Web & Wi-Fi Bolt On for £10 a month when you fill in the unlocking form. Find out more about the Web & Wi-Fi Bolt On here.

What do I need to do?
Firstly, complete the unlocking form - it will take up to 14 days for the iPhone to be unlocked and we'll text you to confirm the unlock request. Then place a non-O2 sim into the iPhone and connect to iTunes via a USB cable. iTunes will confirm that the iPhone has been successfully unlocked.

They don't give you a code as such, you just register for it unlocking, then 2-3 weeks later you get a txt msg saying your phone is now unlocked.

Did mine last November.

Apparantly, even PAYG customers can get theirs unlocked for FREE without waiting 12 months, if they use an O2 Simplicity SIM and select the option as a 'Pay Monthly' customer.

Cheers for stating the obvious. They have been unlocking since October (or whenever it became available on orange), and PAYG users don't have to wait for a year anymore.

Yes, you get a txt message saying you "Your iphone is now unlocked. To use a non-O2 sim card in your iPhone swap the existing sim and connect to iTunes as usual'.

Anyone know if iPhones purchased outright from the Apple Store can be unlocked?

I've been using my Simplicity sim on it, have no idea where the original Sim is.

I bought my iPhone from Apple online in Sept 09, using my O2 simplicity sim in it & they unlocked mine with no problems or charge.

If your using an 02 sim then it would be 02 that would unlock it
