Anyone had an iphone unlocked by o2 know how long until the unlock takes effect?

I have a 2 year old iphone and now I've got a vodafone sim I asked o2 to unlock it, which they duly said they did two or three days ago (and charged £15, cheeky so-and-sos) but I'm having problems as itunes and my phone are saying that the vodafone sim is unsupported. I also tried with a tmobile one and got the same response.
I was wondering if it can take a few days for the unlock to come into effect?
And before you say 'ask them', I have emailed them just now, but wanting other peoples experience of o2 unlock please.

You will received a text message from O2 telling you it's been unlocked so until you have received that it's still locked. Not sure how they are taking right now but mine a year ago took about 14 days

Thanks for that, I haven't had the text so guess I'll just have to wait - I'm a naturally impatient person and want it unlocked now:D

Generally all UK phones are network locked and if you wish to use another network provider’s SIM Card in your phone, you need to enter the Network Unlock Code (NUC) in your phone when is asks.
Vodafone does not provide the NUC for iPhone that are on Vodafone contract until the contract minimum term is completed. I can provide you the NUC in the case of iPhone (box only) purchase. There is no charge for getting this unlocked.
Please confirm if this is box only purchase along with the scanned copy of purchase receipt in Word format through email attachment.
I’ll look forward to your reply.
Kind regards
