O2 iPhone unlock site goes live
As of tomorrow (Tuesday 10th) Orange will be offering the little-known handset that has rapidly become known as the ‘JesusPhone’ in certain circles, and like decent honourable sorts, O2 are now allowing their iPhone-using customers to unlock their phones, enabling them to switch to another service provider – and here’s the official website telling you how to do it.
Contracts being what they are, if you’re locked into a deal with O2, you’ll need to honour the remainder of the minimum term with hard currency if you choose to go elsewhere. Pay and go customers will have had to have been with O2 for a minimum 12 month period, and they’ll be charged a one-off disconnection fee of £15.
With the Orange offering coming in somewhere on the scale between ‘more or less the same as O2’ and ‘piss poor’ it’ll be interesting to see how many O2 customers migrate. Still, it gives us an excuse to pump another JesusPhone story into your shattered faces…
