    Not that strange. A lot of countries do that with iPhones.

    What carrier is the phone locked to (just reread your first post)?

    Have you tried calling O2 Ireland to see if they will unlock it for you?

    I'll try that though haven't used it on the network yet so more than likely you would have to have spent a bit on prepaid credit before they give an unlock as far as I know

    Normally 15 pounds I believe. Pretty cheap to be able to get an unlock if that is right.

    I asked them and as I thought I would have to have topped up by 150euro before they could unlock.so all my friends and family are on meteor I orderd the factory unlock today for 60euro

    Is there anyone on the forum that knows in detail how for phone sales and repair shops do a factory unlock,if apple don't sell an unlock solution and these guys do then where does the high price tag for an unlock come from.just interested really would love to know the exact procedure

    They ask Apple to remove the lock on your device Imei. There was also a couple of guys who paid someone from Apple with access to the database to do the same...
