    O2 iPhone unlocking ?

    I've just bought an iPhone locked to O2.

    The guy I got if from has put in the request on the O2 site for unlock, but does his sim need to be in the phone for this to work ?

    I know the unlock comes through itunes, but is it worked on the mobile number or the phone's IMEI ??

    Anyone ?

    Thanks Spit roast.

    I had one unlocked from a request from the seller, it works from the imei number.

    after 3weeks i rang o2 re the unlocking the said they were unable to unlock it as the sim was not in the iphone

    basically if they have not unlocked it within 7 days then you're screwed

    I am in the same situation, and asked for an unlock code, but the requestor got a message saying "We are unable to unlock your iphone"... What can I do now?

    Jailbreak and use Ultrasn0w?

    Stick o2 payg sim in it, make some calls with it to register the number to the phone then try again and pay the £15.
