Hi @Leaving2828, just wanted to check how you're getting on with this as it's been a few days since you posted? Did you manage to unlock your phone ok in the end?

Re: Unlocking iphone

yes and no,

i filled in the form, received email saying i entered incorrect security answers, asked to re-fill in document. I asked which elements i had incorrectly filled in, sorry we have stopped the service replying to emails. Follow link to live chat, live chat didn't work. i phoned up, answered my security correctly & according to o2 employee it will take up to 72 hrs where as form subbmission quoted 10 or 14 day. These are the things i will not miss from o2..even to get into my account i have to constantly change password as it doesn't reconise me, i use the same password after phone verification. I just did it to answer this. The person i spoke to was very good and informed me of the next steps, thank you for enquiring.

Your security question isn't the same as your password you use to login with. It can also be reset in your MyO2.
