o2 Handsets


    Would anyone know whether mobile handsets supplied from an o2 high street store are supplied locked to o2 or unlocked?

    Ive seen posted before about handsets from o2 online being unlocked but would appreciate any info about high street stores if anyone knows.

    Thanks in advance


    from an actual 02 store they will be locked to 02,but if you buy the same handset from a carphone warehouse high street store,even if they supply it on 02 it will be unlocked.

    Contract handsets tend to be unlocked, payg tend to be locked (if bought direct from O2).

    If you buy from CPW or P4U they're usually unlocked.


    I believe if you buying instore you can request an OEM handset, as in one that is not netwrok banded. I did this with my N95 in phones4u

    Hi, Steve1221 is correct my friend works for o2 and he said phone are unlocked on contracts but payg aren't.
