Iphone 7 Plus Unlocking

Hi,

I have been following the best ways to request the unlocking of my phone action. I have done this through the myo2 app, but how do you know if it has gone through as the option is still there to unlock the phone and i have had no confirmation of the request.

Appreciate your help guys.

Had this message, does this mean once i put a new sim card and connect to itunes its completed and do i have to do it straight away?

“O2: Nearly there. Finish off unlocking your iPhone by putting in a non-O2 sim, connect to iTunes then you're away. Find out more at www.O2.co.uk/unlockmyiphone”

It's now unlocked on Apple's servers.
It does not matter when you change sim cards as it will always be unlocked from now on.
iTunes connection isn't essential anymore but may be needed older devices.
