Will a UK iPhone locked to O2 work in Germany on the German O2 network SIM card?
Alas I doubt it?? I have a locked Vodafone (work one) & I tried putting a French Sim card in it & it didn't work
You need to buy an unlocked iPhone for it to work.
No it won't, unless you have one that can be unlocked, and you go through the process of unlocking it.
You can unlock all iPhone 2G's, and 3G/3GS models that have not been updated to firmware 3.1
Vodafone doesn't have a network in France.
But if it's on the same operator - i.e. O2 - it may work?
An iPhone locked to O2 in the UK works in Ireland with an O2 Ireland SIM.
eeerrrr no they don't the OP has an iPhone already why fork more money out for something they can do for free???
if you want to use your iphone with a german O2 sim best option (to ensure it will work) is to jailbreak and then unlock it with ultrasn0w, but you may find this a bit difficult to do if you have already updated to 3.1
Only if you speak German.
O2 is not always the same as O2
Hi there. Your phone will NOT work with a German O2 SIM because each GSM operator has a network identifier unique to that operator and country. In this case, the phone is locked to O2 UK. See here
O2 UK = 234 (UK Mobile Country Code, not same as IDD code!) 02
O2 Germany = 262 (German MCC) 07.
So, company name is the same - but not anything else.
You'll have to get your phone unlocked - sorry!
A locked phone is a locked phone.
Why then does O2 UK iPhone work with an O2 Ireland SIM?
I really think it'd just be simpler for you to unlock it, then you're covered either way.
Then right now you're out of luck. 3.1 can't be unlocked to another network. That may change in the future but there's no certainty on that.
