Depending on when you bought it either real easy or impossible.

Hi @Anonymous We have had people on here who have never been able to unlock. O2 won't take responsibility for the unlock...(unless any change recently?)

To be honest I haven't seen anyone on here who have been able to unlock this phone, exclusive to O2 as was but between O2 & Amazon, they can't seem to or are reluctant to unlock.

Re: Unlocking Amazon fire phone

Should be simple but many on here have had problems but maybe they managed to get the phone unlocked eventually ?

Thats why I posted 'unless anything has changed'. I didn't hear of anyone on the forum who managed it..

Re: Unlocking Amazon fire phone

Early handsets sold before April of launch year, if I recall correctly, are impossible to unlock. Later ones are OK, hence why I said it depends when you bought it.
