Unlocked iPhone SE

Hi,I’ve obtained an iPhone SE which was initially purchased from Carphone Warehouse, their phones lock to the first sim inserted, in this case EE. The latter has been contacted and the phone is in the process of being unlocked so I can put in my O2 sim. My question is, when the O2 sim is inserted will the phone then become locked to O2, as with the EE initial sim? Carphone Warehouse has informed me that it’s up to O2. Your assistance would be much appreciated. Many Thanks.

Re: Unlocked iPhone SE

@londonpride No, once unlocked it will remain unlocked so you can swap sims at your leisure.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone7 (EE)

@londonpride O2 don't lock phones any longer, so you're good to go.

I DO NOT WORK FOR O2
