Unlocking a Samsung

I've requested to unlock a Samsung s8 plus. It's all paid off and I'm selling it due to upgrade. I've requested an unlock with o2 and it says it takes a few days. The lady wants to pick it up tomorrow but do I need to keep it with my payg sim in it until its unlocked?

Thank you

@Juju79  Do you have the unlock code? If so, give it to the buyer. When they put in a different network sim it will ask for the code and it's done. See this: https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Unlocking-an-O2-phone-to-use-a-different-SIM-card/ba-p/1...

There's no point in giving it to the buyer unless they have the unlock code, or an O2 sim.

@Juju79 No, there's no need to keep your sim in it.

If they want to pick it up tomorrow, let them, then forward them the code when you get it.
