Default [Q] Sim Unlock O2 G4GB LUMIA 1020

Hi there ! Bought one of these phones from ebay.co.uk and wanted to unlock it before it arrives by IMEI. A friend told me that the O2 ones already come sim unlocked... is this true?

Many thanks!!!

That's not true, they are locked to O2 network. Fill in a form here: https://www.o2.co.uk/apps/help/help?...locking%20Form and wait. It took them one day to supply me with an unlock code.

Thank you very much. Already received it and, as you told, it's locked. I'm not living in UK and bought the phone on ebay to use overseas. The link you provided it's for 02 contract customers, no? Do you know any reliable unlock code provider? Cheers

Well, most likely the person who sold you the phone is an O2 contract customer. You could ask that person to request an unlock code for you as it would be free of charge. Another option is to get O2 Pay & Go sim card and doing it yourself. See this: http://service.o2.co.uk/IQ/SRVS/CGI-...ockmymobile%29 which might be tricky if you're not in the UK I don't know of any reliable unlock sites, but they usually charge a fortune for this.
