I bought an iPhone which is locked to O2.
It is iPhone 4s 16 GB
I bought the iPhone from eBay.
I wanted to know if O2currently unlocks iPhone 4s ?
Because last I heard and on the FAQ section they say they don't do it currently
Also it says if I'm unlocking my iPhone less than 12 after I bought it O2 will take off the free Web & Wi-Fi bolt. Does this apply to me even though I bought the iPhone from ebay and not from O2 store or have a contract with them?

O2 are unlocking the iphone4s. You need to purchase and put in the O2 simcard and use the phone to make a couple of chargeable call and throw a couple of texts in for good measure.
You need to make sure there is £15 credit left on the phone and fill in the unlocking form : https://www.o2.co.uk/apps/help/help?qid=1&q1=2&rou
The message about losing the free web and wifi is an old message as initially this offer was introduced when buying a new iphone so it does not apply to you.
All of the above is only relevant if you are using the iphone in the UK. You won't be able to unlock it otherwise.

souaden have you been successful in contacting O2 about this?
The reason I ask is because I believe O2 can *only* unlock devices that were purchased directly from them, either online or in-store. Although the phone is locked to the O2 network, it may have been purchased from a 3rd party retailer and if that's the case, you might have some problems.
If you've not yet contacted O2, hopefully the customer service team will keep you straight
