Re: I’m trying to get my old contract 5s phone unblocked so that I can use abroa

If you bought an iPhone directly from EE after 01/09/15 it should have been auto unlocked after 18 months. Using the form below will also confirm this.

 

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.

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