Re: iPhone 5 Unlock from today!

Question from a paranoid person.

When I unlock then put in a new SIM from another provider, it doesn't then go and lock to that one for six months does it!?

Once it's unlocked it's unlocked for all networks permanently.

No of course not. Once unlocked officially it will remain so forever. It's the dodgy unlocks that cause issues.....

Re: iPhone 5 Unlock from today!

I'd never even heard of "locking" until I got this iPhone so anything seems possible!

Re: iPhone 5 Unlock from today!

I am so happy that O2 has decided to unlock customer's Iphone for free on pay monthly. I think this is the right way forward for O2 in attracting more customers to their network. What do you think?

Pay monthly!

What about PAYG?

Re: iPhone 5 Unlock from today!

The guy's statement is correct insofar as saying 'free on pay monthly'.

 

To finish his proclamation '£15 on P&G!

 

...there, sorted:smileywink:
