    I doubt this is true unless you personally have it unlock with them.

    I don't have a whole lot of experience with O2 but I am gonna call bs on this. The rep may sound naive but more then likely he's either gonna hang up on you for not returning to the conversation to help other people or he is gonna ask you for the imei and mobile number again. From what I have read O2 only unlocks devices if you are a customer of theirs in good standing and are off contract. I believe you have to be on contract for atleast 8 months before they will unlock your device.

    Again, this is all speculation as all the material I just said was from different threads and websites I have read. Someone who has had this method done may chime in and explain it more thoroughly.

    Well it sounded like he said he put it on the list when he told me how long it would take and told me all I have to do is connect to itunes. Ill just have to wait and see if this works. It would be pretty amazing

    Be sure an update if something does or does not happen. In another thread, it didn't even look like people with legit O2 mobile numbers were able to get their phones unlocked.

    i did this months ago the week it was first published here on the site. the Guru in fact did unlock my phone and i did not give them my 02 number as i didnt have one. OP, if this does work.. it shouldnt take 3 days. i did mine @ noon lunch time and when i got home by 9pm, itunes unlocked it as synced it.

    granted mine was done months ago before the Guru's caught up to our scam. but, yes... its worth a try. else, the guru will say anthing on the chat to make you happy and get you off the chat. previously i was bb 1.59 and now im on 04.10.01 and still unlocked. confirmed with my T-mobile sim

    Do I need to restore and activate? or update to the latest firmware? How should the process go?

    try backing up your phone. one backed up, restore from back up. but dont update your firmware from 1.59, just in case the unlock does not work.
