I have received the instructions and codes to unlock my old S4 device but Idon't have a non EE simcard to use to access the code request page. There must surely be a way round this. Any help would be appreciated.

@Denjerus if it says you need a none EE SIM card to access that page then you need a none EE SIM card. You can get one for a £1 at any supermarket.

@Denjerus You need a sim from another network you can get one from 3 UK or Vodafone.
Then you can unlock your phone.
if some one of your family or friend on other network you can use that sim as you don't need credit on that sim ,even it dose not matter if it is on pay as you go or pay monthly.
i hope it will help you sort this out.

Thanks for the help guys.
Tried a couple of O2 sims from my sons phone and a £1 PAYG sim in a local shop with no success. After being a long time loyal customer of my EE shop I tried to get them to help. Seems since I upgraded my phone and put the sim in my new phone the old one can no longer identify any sim card.
RIP old Samsung Galaxy S4

@Denjerus have you tried a hard reset on the s4? Take it back to factory reset then try the O2 sim again

Thanks Lee your help much appreciated. I am resigned to using it as a backup movie and games machine.
