    Doubtfull.

    You need to give them your O2 phone number and IMEI number for them to check if it can be unlocked.

    It is free for phones on a iPhone contract and PAYG phones have £15 deducted from their credit.

    It's a network lock. If it's anything like Australia you'll have to take it to the carrier it's locked to, or a phone repairer who knows how to get passed it.

    Just check your carriers website. Easiest way to start.
