O2 Begins Offering iPhone Unlock in UK
Following the end of O2’s exclusivity deal with Apple for UK distribution of the iPhone, the company has begun to offer an unlocking service to customers.
- Customers tied into pay monthly contracts with O2 can unlock at any time free of charge. However, they are still obliged to continue paying the monthly tariff until their contract expires.
- Customers with pay-as-you-go accounts are able to get their iPhones unlocked after owning the phone for 12 months and upon payment of a GBP £15 unlocking fee.
The unlocking procedure is said to take up to a fortnight. Confirmation that unlock has been successful is sent to the customers phone by SMS message.
