I have some iphones from previous contracts and I am considering signing up for a new 3GS contract. The issue I have is that I want my previous iphones unlocked. When I went to a store and talked to them and they said they would never unlock them and to go to a third party to unlock.
Im an iphone developer and I'm not too keen to go the third party route primarily because I need clean environments to develop on.
Has anyone been successful in getting o2 to unlock their old iphones? If so how? I feel they are being unreasonable in this situation, I've done my time to justify their subsidy of the iphone in previous contracts, and feel a bit miffed at their dismissal of my request and claim they will never do it.
I travel extensively so I'm tempted to approach some carriers overseas and see what they have to say.
