O2 UK iPhones unlocked!

Making good on their promise from a week ago, O2 UK launched a website where customers can get their iPhone’s officially unlocked starting November 10, 2009. Here are the details:

  • Pay Monthly customers can get the unlock any time, but you have to keep paying O2 for the length of your remaining service contract.
  • Pay Go customers can get the unlock after 12 months, for a one-time £15 fee (deducted from airtime balance).
To begin the process, you need to complete the online form. The process takes up to 14 days to complete. Then you will get an SMS confirmation when it’s completed. You then just place a non-O2 SIM in to your iPhone, hook up to iTunes, and finish the unlock.

For me, I had filled in the form on day 1 and today I got the SMS confirmation and now my iPhone 3G is all unlocked! Sweet!
