Hi all, I'm not a solicitor so I may be way wrong but I've been doing some research regarding phone unlocking. Ofcom say that, if your phone is not under contract and your not paying off your contract you can request that your phone be unlocked. The operator can't charge any more that their standard unlock fee, it should take less than 25 days and you can keep your handset. When you buy an iPhone, you are under no obligation to enter into a contract with o2 or any other party, you own the phone outright. I can see no reason why o2 can deny a request to unlock the phone. Am I missing something? Does anyone have any thoughts on the issue?
