I have an iPhone and 13 months left on my contract. I've hit a snag however, as I'm now required to move abroad. Usually i'd assume that i would have to leave my contract running or pay it off in full and buy a new contract in the country i'm moving to, but O2 have made this more complicated.
Since my iphone is locked to O2, i assume i am unable to do this. therefore, when i move, is my phone now completely useless? Is it possible to transfer my contract to one of telefonica's other networks? I'm not going to be happy if i have to continue paying £40/month for a phone i can never use again.
Any help appreciated.

I suggest your best bet is to ring customer services and explain your situation as these forums are customer based I.E no official input from o2.
O2 4g Wingle 5gb
iPad 3 wifi-3g 64gb
My first mobile was in 1995 a CM-R111 from sony on Cellnet.

It's a long shot for sure. Honestly it's just another example of these companies screwing honest people over by introducing ridiculous "safety" features to prevent products being used in a manner they dont like.
I guess if they can't help me with a network transfer, i'll be forced to take the matter into my own hands, which i'd assume you're not allowed to discuss here
Thanks for the help. I'll call them and ask about a transfer. Hope they can help out!

After all its not O2's fault that you 'have' to move abroad.
The first thing to do is see what O2 say, perhaps you could transfer the contract to someone else, perhaps they will let you pay off the contract. But in the end you made a legally binding contract and might have to stick with it.
