How do I unlock my old s8 to put my son's Tesco sim card in it to give him?

I've just upgraded my phone and want to pass the old one to my son. His is completely battered.  How do I unlock my old s8 to allow his Tesco sim card to work in it? 

Thanks

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. It will first show your new current phone on that number, if any, & ask whether that is the device you want to unlock? If not, you will then have to type in the IMEI of the old phone.
