It can be unlocked earlier than 6 months but not by EE.

Grand Master asking?
Sure it is permanent. Factory unlock code from Samsung.

Hi @robdevil and welcome to the community.
Samsung will not be able to unlock the device, they will refer you to your network provider.
Please do see our guide on handset unlocking for all the information you need to unlock your device.

ehhh. Codes are sold by 3rd party unlock specialist and they got them from Samsung. EE has nothing to do with that. EE has codes from same database by the way. EE do not lock phones, Samsung does it for EE request so they can unlock them too.
