Why should i pay EE £8.99 to unlock my phone when EE locked it giving no reasons.i did not ask for it to be locked so therefore why should i pay

Blame Apple not EE. That's the cost to unlock, and EE set that price.
any iPhone or iPad sold directly by EE, on or after 1 September 2015, will be unlocked automatically once it reaches 18 months old*

@Gerkio56 Unless you purchase a device outright in full then they lock to the network that the first SIM card that is placed on them.
And if you have to pay £8.99 it’s because you didn’t get the device from EE directly. If you get any device from EE they will unlock it for free once the contract is over or as @Northerner has said if it was purchased after said date for an iPhone from EE.

Nothing to do with apple
It's the price and the policy in place. Regardless if its apple or not.
Same on every network except Three (who don't lock their phones)

@Gerkio56: Basically it's the EE T&Cs that you agreed when you signed-up.
