EE Unlock S8

I have a Samsung S8 which is just over 6 months old and am looking to sell it to a friend. I might be looking to unlock it as he might not be with EE. 

 

How do i go about unlocking it?  I have to call 150 EE as i have to cancel my insurance as i will not have the phone.

 

Do i have to call EE and get them to unlock it?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: EE Unlock S8

If the device had been on your contract for at least 6 months, even if that contract has now been cancelled, you can just apply using the Unlocking your device form as the Pay Monthly option and giving the mobile number that it originally came with.

Re: EE Unlock S8

Did you buy this device yourself new direct from EE or is it 2nd-hand? The process & costs are different.

Thanks for the reply.  I bought it straight from EE last december for a 2 year contract.  I am loking at buying another  type of phone and a friend was looking into mine but just realised it will be locked to EE.

Cheers for that.  Will have a look at the form.

 

Needing to call them anyway re insurance so might just call and see what they say.  My friend said hes with Skymobile so need it unlocked and they would do it for free.

Thanks! You're welcome! Glad I could be of assistance.

 

It'll cost £8.99 to unlock it by EE as it's still in contract.
