yeah, O2 will unlock my old iPhone for £15. (Apple do it.) Takes about 48 hours.
Why is O2 charging £15 to unlock the iPhone? Is it a pay monthly or pay as you go? If pay monthly, they should do it for free.

O2 PAYG = £15 for unlock.
I was having to take in a lot of info from O2 and Three yesterday regarding different monthly tariffs for a new phone and 30 day rolling PAYG tariffs for my old phone (once unlocked). O2 must have quoted for both monthly and PAYG unlock fees and I remembered the wrong one. (It was busy in there.)

If I am travelling any distance, I always take my old (Vodaphone) SE K750i with me as well, just in case (O2 coverage has been 'patchy' in some quite suprising places too).
I don't think there are any networks that work everywhere. Even in our main local shopping area (in the middle of a south coast city of 200,000 people) O2 coverage will vary depending on which side of the precinct you are.
I have checked the coverage maps for O2 and Three. Coverage for a lot of West Sussex north of the A27 is a either patchy or non-existent or 'good outdoors' ( = sh#t), on both networks.
