    O2 can unlock now that orange have contracts too but they charge for it. £15 I think. But you cal always jailbreak it ( using blackra1n) and unlock this way. I would def recommend the 3gs tho if u wanted to keep it. Maybe see if u can pay 3 extra to get unlimited usage

    Why's is that? 02 charge and u can do it yourself in 10 mins aswell as having every app imaginable for free If u decide to keep it. And if u check around jailbroken iPhones go for considerably more

    i am eagerly awaiting your reply and the procedure to do so mate...
    plz help me out....

    It's not better than a real unlock but I thought o2 wont unlock a pay as u go phones for a year unless u get lucky. I also got a 3gs as a present and have jailbroken and unlocked it not to get free apps but so I can use my vodafone sim. So I guess it's up to u what way u want to go.
    If u do unlock it just google blackra1n, there are loads of step by step guides but u basically download it and click the button and it's done, things is if ur battery dies or u turn off ur phone u have to use blackra1n again.
    If I knew o2 would def unlock my phone I would do it today but till then Im happy to live with my jailbroken phone.
    Cheers

    O2 unlocked mine free of charge & I'm not on an official iPhone contract, I bought my iPhone from Apple in September this year & use my O2 simplicity sim in it. I just filled out their form & got a text back after a week or two saying it had been unlocked. Connected it to iTunes & popped in a Virgin Sim to confirm.

    I didn't go down the jailbreak route as I find my battery lasts longer if I fully charge / discharge rather than just topping it up.

    I put my vodafone sim in straight away so wasn't sure if I could still try and unlock it legally through O2?
    Ameet80uk, u should start a thread asking if people know the settings for 3 Internet / mms. that's what I did and someone gave me a link to the settings for vodafone and took me about 2 mins to set up!!
    Hope that helps and enjoy ur iPhone, by far the best phone i have used!!
