I'm not sure what you've done but the process is.....
Put new sim in phone.
Phone asks for an unlock code.
Enter code obtained and job done.....
Help here but make sure you have a network unlock code and not a PUK or PAC code.

@Marlynn If you're still having problems, you may need to speak to customer service. Don't use Live Chat. https://www.o2.co.uk/contactus

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
