Yeah, once you've had the text sync it with iTunes and it gets unlocked.

I 'think' it has to be sync'd with an O2 sim in, but I'm not 100% sure, sorry. . .

Pretty much so, not worth starting a new O2 sim off and then topping that up too! Dont know when you got the phone or when the original owner requested the unlock.......but it will only take a few days tops. :)

The procedure for o2 iphone unlocking is...

1. complete form
2. text is sent to the o2 sim saying when the phone has been unlocked (usually takes about 1 week on average)
3. insert non-o2 sim in iphone and connect to itunes
4. iphone is unlocked

So if the person who requested the unlock doesn't let you know when they receive the text, just keep connecting to itunes with vodafone sim every few days. Shouldn't take too long.
