  1. #1
    Default Testing O2 unlock
    Hi guys
    I have just got O2 to unlock my Iphone 4 (on 4.0.2)
    I want to test to see if it works but the problem is that the phone is already gailbrocken and unofficially unlocked.
    Is there a way of just removing the unofficial unlock.
    I dont want to restore as i will loose my gailbrake

    thanks for any advice in advance

    this is not the chat link, but its the link to submit an unlock if your an 02 customer. if you browse around there site, a java pop up window will come up. i have no idea when and how it pops up as i can never initiate it to pop up. perhaps click on refresh a few times?

    Contacted the support team and got this email.

    Hello Eyyaz

    Thanks for your email.

    I can unlock your iPhone immediately. There's a charge of 15 for
    unlocking it and will be taken off from your credit balance. If you have
    less balance, then please Top-Up and keep 15.

    Please make sure your iPhone is linked on our network with your number
    (0***5 6*6 **0). To do so, you'll need to make an outgoing call by
    placing your SIM card in your iPhone. This takes 24 hours, so till then
    you'll need to keep the SIM card in your iPhone.

    When you've done this and if you agree to the 15 charge, please reply
    to my email with the below security info:

    - date, amount & method of the last Top-Up
    - last four digits of the credit/debit card used to Top-Up.

    I'm looking forward to your reply.

    Regards


    Now i dunno how im going to do this since i have an AT&T locked iphone but my method is going to consist of purchasing a gevey sim, be it real or fake to just temporally unlock my iphone to make some outgoing calls with the o2 sim.

    What do you think?

    yup.. unless you have a 1.59 baseband, the gevey is the only way. by making a call on there network, they will see your IMEI and confirm that your part of there network. but, how do you do that with an ATT locked phone

    Where would I get an O2 sim at to top up and contact them to unlock? I already have the Gevey sim on my iPhone4 but would love to get it factory unlocked...

    interesting idea - I have an att phone I unlocked with ultrasnow now running on telenor in norway - wonder if telenor would do the official unlock for me??? time to send an email!

    Update: Telenor said yes, send them my imei. I did but they could not unlock since imei was not in their database. I had a feeling it would be this way

    It took about 2 mins to get it unlocked
    I think O2 is only Europe

    Have been thinking about the same "Gevey + O2 sim" idea. Anyone knows if making a call in U.S. through international roaming would register iphone sim on O2's network database? Anyone tried it yet?

    I just bought a gevey and an o2 prepaid sim. I don't see why it shouldn't work. Here's hoping!
