Hi there @kiko99ag


Thanks for coming to the community.


To unlock a second-hand device purchased from eBay, it will cost £8.99 and you’ll need to call us on +44 (0) 800 956 6000 to request this. 


You will need:


  • IMEI number of the phone or device (you can enter *#06# on the device to get this)


  • Contact number


  • Contact email address


  • UK credit or debit card to make the payment


You cannot unlock a device purchased or upgraded through a contract that is less than 6 months old.
