My IMEI number is .

Hey there, I doubt you can edit your post but don't stick your IMEI up there like that! You should PM it to one of the moderators. Then they submit the request to Apple and it activates through iTunes. Can take up to two weeks but usually only a couple of days. There's no actual 'unlock code'.

Also get hold of a non-O2 SIM as you will need to have it in the 3GS when you connect to iTunes to activate the unlock whenever it comes through

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

I sent my IMEI number to O2 using the link above and recieved a text today saying they have no record of the number on their system. The number is correct. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

It may be that the IMEI was never registered to an O2 number. If on prepay you can register on O2.ie under "Claim Call Credit" and once registered to your account a topup of €150 would be required before we can unlock this.

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

That should have been registered to your number at the time of upgrade - unless purchased on prepay or replaced by apply / phonecover insurance.

Can you please forward me the imei via pm and I will take a look at that for you.

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

Hi I'm trying to unlock this my iphone too. I sent the code required and was told it wasn't the one on record/didn't exist previously. im trying again to see. My phone was replaced by apple (some fault within 3 months of getting it on billpay) I have been on pre-pay pretty much since that contract expired. 

 

Any adivce for getting it unlocked?

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

Hi, 

I filled in the unlocking request form today, I'm just wondering how long it takes before someone contacts me and if they will do so by phone/email? 
Cheers,

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

What model of phone is it that you're getting unlocked? It ranges from 48 hours to a month depending on the phone, and we would be texting you unless you requested to be emailed instead.

Re: Unlock code iPhone 3GS

You should get the confirmation text within 48 hours in that case. If you haven't heard back in 14 days though let us know and we'll escalate the request.
