Hi @Dmcgill8484 


depending on your device and how long you’ve had determines if it auto unlocks after a set time frame or if you needs to request an unlock. This link should help you.

@Dmcgill8484 : Where did you get this device originally? Did you buy it yourself new direct from EE or from a reseller or is it 2nd-hand? The unlocking process & costs are different. Was it on contract or PAYG? How old is it?
