EE/T-Mobile/Orange will notify you with an email. 

 

Did you provide the correct email address and checked your spam folder? 

 

I suggest you try the unlocking guide now as they might forgot to send you this but have requested the unlock for you already.

No you shouldn't lose anything but if you are concerned make sure you back up the phone.

Apparently it should take 20 working days for the email to come through. I requested mine on the 16th September. I called EE yesterday and was told that it was unlocked and not to worry that I hadn't received the email. I went ahead and changed my SIM to a nano and followed the steps listed from the email that should of been sent. Surprisingly it hasn't been unlocked and I get an error message stating that the iPhone is still locked. I would wait till you get the email.

I'm going to call EE again today (currently in Oz) to try and get it sorted. They have been nothing but a nightmare for the past couple of weeks.
