    I want to get an iPhone but am unsure on something, stopping me from buying it...
    If I buy an UNLOCKED iPhone and put my o2 sim in it, will I still be able to access Internet etc. or can this only be done when you buy a iPhone on contract..?
    I was thinking they only give you access to Internet only when your on the right contract because your paying a specific amount for it each month....

    I'm not 100% sure, but

    You should be able to access the internet fine as long as the service you're going onto has that kind of network (either EDGE or 3G) same as if you're on prepaid, make sure there is a mobile network. But you should certainly be able to use wi-fi anywhere that you find a hotspot or if you have wi-fi in your home.

    You may however want to double-check these things as I don't know the network well.

    Good luck.
