Unlocking phone after cancelling contract

Hi,

I relatively recently (August) cancelled my iPhone 6S contract with O2 Buisness. I have only just come round to reselling the phone, and have realised that I never properly unlocked the phone through O2. Does the contract being terminated mean the phone is unlocked anyway? If not, how do I unlock the phone as an O2 Buisness customer?

Many thanks in advance!

Ending the contract doesn't unlock the phone. It would be nice if that was the case though.

Follow the process here:

This won't be a problem in the future as O2 now only sell unlocked phones.
