    Question Iphone locked to o2....want Talk mobile sim to work

    Hi,
    am new to apple, but a mate of mine has given me his old o2 iphone 5c

    I want to use my talkmobile sim in there but the iphone will not let me, think its still locked to o2?

    Can Jailbreaking it get shut of the o2 lock?

    if so how (I have tried!)

    the phone is not black listed, and works fine with the old o2 sim, can someone point me in the correct way how to get my talkmobile sime to work??


    Thanks!

    If u know someone who is on on Tesco Mobile P&GO for 12months or over, get there sim in it & call Tesco mobile and ask for it to be unlocked. It will take a few days but will legitimately fully unlocked for the price of ... FREEEEEEE
    Tesco's use the o2 network.

    You'll need o2 or one of their co-carriers to unlock it.

    Phone lock information is stored centrally at Apple and applied at the time the phone is activated.

    Try starting here:
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    To my knowledge there hasn't been a soft unlock for years and it's best getting a server unlock anyway as they are permanent.

    If you know someone who is on O2 on a monthly contract they don't charge to unlock Just put their SIM in and us the instructions here : [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] as evilsatan says. I've done it numerous times on the same account lol
