How do i unlock an s6 edge?

My phone was hacked and number taken to another network. I've decided to leave EE and am happy to pay off any outstanding costs, so am moving to a SIM only deal. When i activated the SIM, it said it was  invalid, which i assume is because my phone is locked.  How do i unlock it? Thanks.

@HL72 : Did you buy this device yourself new direct from EE or is it 2nd-hand? The process & costs are different.Is it on contract or PAYG?

Re: How do i unlock an s6 edge?

I bought it through EE a few years ago on a pay monthly contract. 

I've completed the request form now - it does seem odd that everything requires you to have a mobile number when surely some people must be without one at this stage of the process? I certainly am. Anyway, thanks for the helpful replies so far and i will wait and see if i receive a code.
