How to get a phone under 6-months unlocked?

I recently bought an iPhone 7 locked to EE. I had no idea the phone was still on contract and 6 months had not been over. I really need to use this phone while I'm abroad for vacation but EE guidelines suggest that it cannot be unlocked for at least 6 months. Is there a way I could get it unlocked? Really need help with this.

None! EE will not unlock a device less than 6 months old.

@ila-nassah

 

Contractually the phone still belongs to EE so they could block it. As @XRaySpeX said there will be no possibility that EE will unlock this device.

 

Thanks 




To contact EE Customer Services dial 150 From your EE mobile or 07953 966 250 from any other phone.

EE standard opening hours are 8am to 9pm weekday, 8am to 8pm on weekends.

Hi and welcome to the Community @ila-nassah

 

Unfortunately, @XRaySpeX and @Northerner are indeed right.

 

We would be unable to unlock a device that does not meet the guidlines.

 

Many thanks,

 

Lee
