if i request an unlock but PAC my sim in 9 days before it "unlocks" then?

after about 24 years I am leaving EE( was orange from the start year ). 

I have my Sim pac but not my new phone (EE wont be selling it) 

 

If I apply to unlock my sony Z5 and the unlock takes more than 9 days (when I am likely to trigger the PAC switch for the new released phone) what happens?  Can I still unlock my phone if the EE sim has transferred it's number to the new provider?

 

thanks in advance

It makes no difference. You ID the phone to be unlocked by the mobile no. it used to have.

 

You can just apply using the Unlocking your device form as the Pay Monthly option and giving the mobile number that it used to have.
