O2 iPhone 6s unlock eBay

Anonymous
Not applicable

Dear all,

 

I just bought an iPhone 6s on eBay, locked to O2. Unfortunatly, I already had a number with EE, and would like to unlock my Apple iPhone 6s.

 

Is there a simple way?

 

Many thanks,

 

Thomas

@Anonymous I don't believe there is a simple way. I'm not 100% certain about this, but I think you would either have to send it back to the seller to get them to unlock it with their O2 sim, or you would have to get an O2 Pay & Go sim, top it up with at least £20 and register it on the network, then apply for it to be unlocked. Either way, whatever bargain you thought you were getting by buying a locked phone isn't going to be as much of a bargain any longer.

Hi @MI5,

Seems we've missed this guide in the Knowledge Base. I'd really like to add it if you feel it's still very useful?

Fancy writing a great device review or O2 forum guide? Send me a message!

I's still a question that gets asked almost daily, so I guess it would be useful?
