Unlocking Iphone

I have just moved to Sydney so I can't use my Giffgaff sim abroad I'm looking to put a new sim in my phone however it's locked to 02 I have filled in a form online to unblock my sim but was emailed back to say it couldn't be done? Does anyone have an email address so I can contact customer support as I can't call up. Thanks.

Re: Unlocking Iphone


Have you tried a different SIM in the phone yet as it may not be locked?

Hi @Becca1900, there's some good advice above, did you get a chance to try any of them? How are you getting on with your unlocking request?
