Unlocking my iphone

I recently had my iPhone unlocked and received a message from o2 saying my next step was to plug the phone into iTunes with a SIM card that had not previously been used in the phone. I duke so and the phone synced. And so I thought the phone was then unlocked. I'm now in Canada and went to purchase a new SIM card today when the guy put a SIM card in my phone it said it was not unlocked! Where can I go from here as my laptop is back in Ireland.

Hi,

 

When you synced the Iphone to your Itunes account with the other sim card was it a sim card from another network?

Re: Unlocking my iphone

Hi, In order to unlock the iphone, once the unlock has been loaded to Itunes you need to put in a different network sim card into the phone & connect it to your itunes account. 

This will unlock the phone.
