My local 02 store have an 8g iphone for £169 and i was thinking of buying it,they say i need to pay for the handset instore with a credit card and register it at home,i want to unlock the iphone because the i want as PAYG phone

So when i first connect it up will i get a message telling me to register the phone and sign up for the 18 month contract?if so do i just ignore this and then unlock the handset via ziphone? is it that easy?thanks
