All O2 Phones to be sold unlocked?

[ Edited ]

Here's an interesting article I read this morning, about O2 to sell all phones unlocked by mid-August.

What's the lowdown, @Martin-O2?

Bravo and not before time either!

So factory firmware? Or just no csc locking.
Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

All contract phones were sold unlocked at one time The original iPhone was the first to be locked because of the O2 exclusivity deal with Apple.

It's way overdue they are now the first network to go back to selling unlocked phones.

Yes this is great news.  It’s also confirmed on Twitter as well

So so we got phones starting to be unlocked now for free, phones sold soon unlocked any way, 4G roaming, better speeds abroad, L23 in the U.K.

o2 Travel Inclusive on selected plans.

 

o2 are seeming really going to make a massive statement this year.  Possible more to come ?

 

1 thing there not good on is o2payg still charging customers to use data in Chanel islands etc. Think that’s poor.  But you never know. 

Need Help, Just ask. We are one big Family here in the o2 Forum.
Use iPhone XS Max dual sim, SE, Honor 10, IPad Pro 11, Apple Watch 4 LTE, 100+ Mpbs Barrier and a Record Player.
