Hello, ok, so this is what i want to do... I live in the republic of ireland and i want to travel to northern ireland to buy a prepaid iphone, I then want to unlock it for 15£ and bring it back to the republic and use it unlocked for my personal and business calls, which i switch between Vodafone and 02. The only problem that i can see when doing this is the time you have to wait for the phone to be unlocked, and then you recieve the text confirming the unlock. My question is, if i go up north and unlock the phone in the space of one day, and then come home, will I recieve the text? I posted the question on an 02 forum with no help whatsoever. Regards, eftrix.
