Factory unlock any O2 phone inc iPhone 5 etc FREE if on O2

Found 16th Apr 2012
Just had my iPhone 4s unlocked free by O2.
I am on Pay Monthly so free. It is still in contract but O2 will unlock it.
Took 5 days to process from the time you fill in the form but then they send you a text to connect iPhone to iTunes with a different sim card and it is factory unlocked.

Direct link to unlocking form is:
o2.co.uk/app…orm

The link will also work for other mobiles on o2 and not just iPhones.
You have to enter IMEI etc.

Happy unlocking...

Been a while since the 3G BUT they won't help if you're bought it second hand thats the only issue
ie: from here, Bay, etc

Yeah but from my past experience i.e if you buy from eBay but have a legit O2 contract then just put the sim in the phone. Make a few calls. Then get it unlocked. All they check is a) you have a contract or agreement with them b) you use the sim card or number in the phone they are trying to unlock.
O2 will unlock any phone irrespective of the phone being used in PAYG or Contract or if is bought from ebay or your own phone. Get a PAYG Sim which has atleast £15 cash worth and make some calls to few numbers and remember the numbers you have called.

Call up O2 with the following information:
1 You PAYG number
2 the phone numbers you have called and
3 atleaset £15 in you PAYG sim.

They say they will charge you £15 to unlock the phone but they never charge you. Have unlocked both my phones this way.

its always been free if you are on contract
I thought only Apple could do a 'factory unlock' and it involved you returning your handset to them
I got my iPhone 4 unlocked like this nearly 2 years ago, they took £15 credit because it was PAYG
it applies to all iphone 4 / 4s they come unlocked and lock to the first sim you put in it, to unlock it you simply put a different sim in it to the one its locked to and conect to itunes and follow the instructions, you dont have to wait 5 days for o2 to text you to do the same thing :s

If you buy from network provider then it is locked to that provider only! Unless you get it from apple directly which it is then unlocked from factory. This post is to highlight the fact that O2 will now factory unlock handsets that are still in contract.
Made a request now. I am also o2 pay monthly customer. thaks OP..

I did this the other day through the chat on the o2 website and the phone was unlocked the next day for free so definitely worth doing!
I got o2 pay as you go iphone 4s so am i able to Unlock it?
Vodafone will unlock any vodafone pay monthly handset for free or any vodafone pay as you go handset for free over 1 year old.
If the pay as you go is under 1 year old they'll charge £20 for it :-(
Thanks
My iPhone 4 was bought on o2 contract in UK. I am using in in india via gevey sim . I filled the O2 form for unlocking via laptop a week back . Just today I reinstalled O2 sim and found the iPhone showed no service . Please guide me what to do? My O2 sim is the one I got along with phone .
Who can unlock this for me please 012541005124093
who can unlock an iphone 4s for me on O2? i,m not from uk, and i don't have an 02 number.
It is only unlocked until you activate it with a new sim card in it though, then it re-locks to that network! Bit of a pain really
Got my iPhone 3G unlocked to any network for free at the Apple store . Took ten minutes !! Don't pay anyone anything . They rip you off !!! Visit your nearest Apple store and they will sort for you . For free !!!

I want to unlock my iPhone it's on 02. I've just finished my contract how can Ido this please. And does this cost any money to do this !
Wow.



A) You have bumped a 10 month thread
B) At the top of the page (presumably where you read about unlocking phones), it clearly gives you details and even a direct link to the unlocking form?
