EE locked phone with BT SIM card

Hi

 

i have an iPhone 6 locked to EE.  I would like to buy a new BT sim and want to know if it's possible? 

 

Ive also spoken to two different EE advisers who said it wasn't possible.  However, I've read on various forums that it is possible. 

 

Can anybody advise before I go ahead and make the purchase please?

 

Many thanks

Hi thanks for this! 

 

When I called today for a PAC code they were 100% certain it would not work.  I don't understand why they don't know!

Hi @sunflowers and @Damienw1

 

The EE phone should work with a BT SIM card and vice versa as it is the same network so won’t need unlocking.

 

Thanks for your help with this @Damienw1

Does it work with an iPhone 5C as well?

Re: EE locked phone with BT SIM card

It works 100%. I tried a BT sim card on an EE locked iPhone and an EE sim card on a BT locked iPhone and they both worked perfectly. 

 

Before i did this, i'd rung BT and they advised it wouldn't work. Why they advise this?, I don't know. Maybe they're not aware or are just playing the fool.
