Got a new iPhone 7 via O2 upgrade. Anyone can confirm if these are unlocked? Or locked to the first network you use? Thanks

Can this be done straight away or wait for a period before requesting? Thanks
It unlocks automatically after 2 years I think, or you have to wait a period - maybe one year into your contract but it’s free to request then? Their website has all the details.

You can do it straight away, and it’ll take ‘up to’ 14 days (usually happens within a few working days though)

The phone does not automatically unlock after 2yrs, it’s something you would have to request. On a contract basis this can be done at any point, bought outright the formal process is waiting a year and then paying £15 to unlatch
I did mine 1 hour after my phone was delivered, you just have to request it and it takes about 48hours i think. Do it online or via phone.
