I'm so sure I sent the request over 14 days ago, but have had no text message and when I call them all they tell me to do is go online, but i've already done that!

if you have had your 3GS unlocked, how long did it take? thanks

Took for flipping ever! At around the 12 day mark, I re-applied, and then after around 16 days it finally did it.

Mine was on Pay as you Go though, so I would have thought you being a contract customer you would get preference and some half decent customer service. Oh well, thats the story with O2 really

They took 5days to unlock mine & that was 2weeks ago. I didn't get a text though, so connect it to iTunes, itmay already be unlocked (that's if the £15 has already been debited?) :-).

as i'm on contract it's free for me to unlock so nothing would have been debited so I have no idea how to check, what happens when I connect to itunes, will it tell me it has been unlocked? thanks

It looks like nothings happening and its just a blank screen with the iPhone connect sign on the screen. Mine took about 30 mins to unlock whilst doing this, but you have to connect it with another sim card in it.

If i buy an unlocked iphone (or have it unlocked), can I use my original t-mobile contract sim? and use all web features?

any idea if this will work? i put my bro's simplicity sim in my 3gs to request the unlock, then put my normal payg sim back in the iphone (o2 aswel)


just get an iphone sim to activate it and put a normal o2 sim in.

oh nope, it charges simplicity too, adds it to the bill.

Yes you can...! I bought my iPhone 3gs on O2, got it unlocked by them, now I use my T-mobile contract sim in there... You need to enter the MMS and internet profile settings manually (you can find them on the net and problems PM me and I'll send them over to you!) but mine all works as it should :thumbsup:.

well i have to submitted a unlocking request form they have took the £15 off my phone but got no text from them any advise what to do
jglazebrook#15
Hi...

Does anyone know if I can put a o2 sim card in (pay as you go) with £15 on.... request the unlock and then while I wait put my normal sim back in to use my phone like normal?

Then every day or two put the O2 sim back and see if they have sent the unlocked text??

Or do I have to keep the SIM in until it unlocks?? (and be without my phone for weeks :-( )
