Default Unlock a simlocked Lumia 820 (O2)

Hi, a friend of mine just bought a sim-locked Lumia 820 from a guy in the UK (we're from Italy, he knows that it was sim-locked, don't ask me why he did it). It's locked by O2 and, as far as I know, it's impossible to unlock it without being the original owner with the O2 SIM and then asking the support to unlock it. However, he went to a tech store and they said that they can unlock it (by paying money obviously)... I told him that I don't think they can do it, but I'm not sure now... what do you think? Are there any other methods to unlock it, maybe free?

You can get free unlock code for handset locked on uk O2 from us, Just login using facebook and writedown model and IMEI number (put in HIDE as key icon in editor for security reason) and thats all.
Just wait when thread is open again because is only one on time
