I’ve old devices to sell. Plse explain locked/unlocked.

I’m still with EE on new contract with new handset and same phone number. Do I state that my old handsets are locked or unlocked?

@JaneyW  Click the green wording below to see how you can request the device to be unlocked. If you got the device from EE it’s free to unlock the device and you’ll probably get a better price for it if it’s unlocked.

Hi @JaneyW

 

Welcome to the EE Community,

 

If a handset is locked to a network it will only accept their sim card if it's unlocked it will accept any sim card.

You must advertise it as locked to EE. Any device bought directly from EE is.
