Phone unlock

It has taken 2 weeks so far for O2 to unlock my phone and still no code, even after numerous staff telling me it would be with me within 48 hours. I'm now stuck in Australia without a phone I am still paying for but can't use!!! Anyone else stuck with this problem?!!

Re: Phone unlock

Hi @louisa_stimson

There have been major problems with unlocking for some weeks now.

I will tag our community managers @Marjo and @Martin-O2 to see if they can help.

The guide for unlocking is here https://community.o2.co.uk/t5/How-to-Guides/Unlocking-an-O2-phone-to-use-a-different-SIM-card/ba-p/1...though it appears you have tried all this.?

Re: Phone unlock

There has been a big problem this last couple of months with unlocking. @EmilieT has been helping out. I'll also mention @Martin-O2 and @Marjo to see if they can get the guru to assist. Check your messages tomorrow.

Re: Phone unlock

Thank You, I have tried everything and appreciate o2 have had delays but their customer service staff on the phone and online are giving false information!

So many calls and live chats and still nothing. Really not cool.

Thanks

Re: Phone unlock

@louisa_stimson The unlock issue has been a major problem for some time now, and O2 have dropped the ball on this one. Admin has been tagged in another post, but if they cannot help, you'll just have to persevere with customer service, as fruitless as that may seem at the moment. If it still ends up in failure after trying again, you can lodge a formal complaint: https://www.o2.co.uk/how-to-complain

Re: Phone unlock

It amazes me how O2 cannot unlock phones and customers have to resort to the community for help. The fact that gurus can unlock phones after Intervention from admin is a terrible indictment of o2 and adds so much stress for customers for what should be a simple request.

Re: Phone unlock

Wow!! I am now being told that any charges that occur from having to turn my phone off aeroplane mode will be cut by 50 percent.
I shouldn't be paying anything here?! This fault doesn't lie with me so why should i be racking up roaming charges because O2 can't get a move on and unlock my phone!!
