Unlocking iPhone 7?

[ Edited ]

Will we be able to do this straight away, or will we have to wait a while?

 

I'm a contract customer. 

 

Thanks

You can do it if you have paid off your device plan. I did it last week. Got the unlock email and code yesterday.

Re: Unlocking iPhone 7?

I asked this question to o2 and the they advised it can be done 1 month after you have had the contract as the iPhone 7 unlock codes are not available until then Smiley Happy my last phone was locked to o2 and i had it unlocked a few months after without having to pay off the phone plan.

It appears that they won't be unlocking iPhone 7 until they have the "free flow stock available", whenever that will be.

Just to inform you in advance.

We are not unlocking iPhone 7 as of now at all.

Because we are selling these iPhone to be used exclusively used on O2 network only.

I have been receiving conflicting information – the response I received from your twitter account is that as long as the device plan has been settled, it will be unlocked.

That's in the case of iPhone SE for now.

So there's no way this can be unlocked even if the device plan has been settled?

As per the latest update we are not unlocking iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus yet until we have the free flow stock available.

Yes, for now it can't be unlocked but yes once we start unlocking these iPhones you will get the information from our website.

I won't be able to comment on the exact time scale as I don't want to make any false commitment.

But yes once it's available you will get the information from our website.
