Hi, I've read that free unlock codes are available after 21 months in contract (with effect 01 Aug 17) but on phoning ee - I was informed that my contract must be 24 months complete. I've now had my final bill. Could anybody clarify if I can now proceed with my request without incurring the £8.99 cost? It's an iPhone 5s which my partner is now using with an ee SIM (PAYG).

Please CLICK HERE to review the current unlocking process.
States if you are still wihtin your contract (so minimum term) you will have to pay £8.99
I would wait until month 24.

Hi BrendonH, thanks for your reply.
I've just found the answer to my own question. The 21 month automatic unlock applies to phones bought after Nov 15. As mine was bought in Aug 15, it doesn't qualify. I'll wait another week and submit my online form. Thanks again.

Yes, this was a change to EE's unlocking process from 1st Aug 2017:
Any (contract or PAYG) Apple device which was sold on or after 1 November 2015 will be unlocked automatically once the device reaches 21 months old.
