    I imagine you should be fine. O2 gives iPhone users a SPECIFIC SIM card, but if the phone is unlocked already then it should be ok to pop any SIM card in.

    p.s: I don't mean to be an ass, as I'm happy to help, but if I can take a few minutes out of my day to help you, then I'm sure you can take the time to type properly and not make words up (see: 'persific').

    thanks for the reply. i just phoned o2 and they said theres nooooooooo way that i can use my contract and sim i have now on an iphone. they said iv got to buy out my current o2 contract and start a fresh o2 iphone contract.
    is this true? or is it possible by unlocking a iphone?

    No it's not true.

    Step 1. Just try the SIM in the iPhone and see if it works. If it doesn't, go to step 2.

    Step 2. Depending what model iPhone and what computer you are using, choose the correct tutorial here on how to unlock it:

    Step 3. Follow the tutorial carefully.

    (I am assuming that you have an iPhone now and don't need to buy one from O2)
