Pixel unlock - working abroad

Got a new Pixel but I work abroad a lot of the year, so need it unlocking to use with my overseas SIM as well as my UK one when I'm home. How do I do that?

Hi, 

 

You won't be able to unlock it for 6 months if purchased it on contract. 

 

Thanks

Re: Pixel unlock - working abroad

Is this device on PAYG or contract?

 

When did you purchase it?

Seriously?! Then i guess my only option is to cancel the contract and return the phone! Gutted.

Did you purchase from a store? If so there is no cooling off period for this.

I got it direct from EE online.

Then there is an cooling off period of 14 days. I would call and get this started.

Hi @Kimbo833 and welcome to the Community.

 

Have you checked to see if your new talk plan includes the places you work overseas?

 

It may tide you over till the 6months.

 

Many thanks,

I work in the Middle East, and I'm almost certain it's not covered.

Hi @Kimbo833

 

Unfortunately, our plans only cover Europe, so my suggestion would not be relevant.

 

Many thanks,
