No you cant do that because the phones use different sims. Your 5S will be a nano sim and the 4S a micro.

You need to use an O2 payg sim in it for a few days then complete the form yourself but you need £15 credit on the sim.

You can pick up a free sim adapter from the o2 store and you then use your contract sim in the 4 for a couple of days before requesting the unlock. Free that way.

Yes but you will need the correct adapter to make the nano sim fit the micro slot in the 4s.

Chase it up with CS http://www.o2.co.uk/contactus
I assume you have tried a different network sim already?
