I have been provided with a friends old iPhone 6s locked to o2 as they have upgraded to an iPhone 8 would unlocking the 6s effect the 8. Also to add the 6s has been under pay monthly for 18 months.

@COnnar It won't make any difference to your phone https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Unlocking-an-O2-phone-to-use-a-different-SIM-card/ba-p/1...

Re: iPhone unlock

Hi @COnnar 

Unlocking wouldn't affect anything other than the phone you choose to unlock. Guide here

Best of luck and welcome to the forum Welcome

Re: iPhone unlock

So will the form ask for what specific phone you want to unlock or does it unlock the phone without an o2 sim inserted

Re: iPhone unlock

@COnnar you need to give the IMEI number of the phone you want to unlock.
