Thread: (How to) Unlock iPhone 4 with o2

  1. #21
    The sim that I got was from eBay.uk. And it came with a phone number sticker on the sim holder, I also ask the seller to get me a 10 topup voucher at the same time. Top up by calling 4444.
    I think the prepaid sim that came with credit preloaded is already activated. At least that's how my sim was.

    I guess my unlock request didn't work was because I call and text a us number but not a uk number. Maybe I should try calling a uk number to see if it works.

    I understand I'll need to top-up from that other ebay link already provided after I'm activated.
    i purchased my o2 sim from ebay uk. it was a new activated sim card. it only requires a top-up. most o2 sim card sellers already activated it. i then had to cut it with a sim cutter to make it a micro sim. i verified the sim was active with my unlocked ip4 and it read all the o2 network settings. it also sent me a text asking me to dial 4444 to top-up.

    Message from o2

    Welcome to America. While away you can top-up just like at home by calling 4444 using your debit or credit card for payment. Enjoy your trip!

    just a quick question?
    any o2 sim works right? and do i buy the pre-activated ones or i buy the un-activated ones? and if i buy the un-activated ones, can i activate it in US?

  9. #28
    I think all prepaid sim with credit should be activate already. The o2 sim I got was preloaded with 10 and it cost less than that on eBay.uk, and the 2 Vodafone sim I got had 1 credit on it preloaded, and it came with 10 voucher each. All I did was open the seal package, pop the sim from the holder and put the sim into my unlock phone, then call 4444(o2) or 2345(Vodafone) to make sure it can connect to the network.

    also.. in the USA, dont forget to turn off 3G. i had 3G on before and i was unable to connect with the o2 sim. but once i turned 3G off, the ATT logo should up and i got the "need to top-up" auto-text from 4444

    Macmac80210 (and any others that this has worked for), just out of curiosity...what carrier was your phone originally locked to? Just ordered an O2 sim and gevey sim as well, so I'll be giving it a shot. I'm locked to AT&T, btw..

    Locked to AT&T....make sure to chat the rep to have them unlock it. And if one rep won't unlock it, try again with another. It took me 3 times to find a rep that would unlock the phone for me. So just keep trying! Just keep chatting with them. Also you could email (haven't tried it personally. But it's worth a shot!) the hardest part of this thing for people was registering it on the o2 network. Make sure to keep your o2 sim in the whole after you request the unlock.
    Also, you could chat the reps at o2. Most of them will tell you that this won't work, but you will eventually find one that will help you.
    So just keep trying and hopefully it will work for you guys too! I am on vacation but when I get back I will start to unlock more of these phones. I am sure that this might also be possible on other european networks, as it is law in Europe that an unlock must be provided. So orange might do this as well. Someone should call or email or chat them and give that a shot too!


    Good luck y'all!

    It was at Ebay uk. All I did was look for 1 that will ship outside UK.

    Try this one. 19.75 credit pre activated for less than 19.75
    Should still have credit left over after you make a call to UK number and 15 for unlocking the phone.
