Unlocking a phone I am selling

I’ve just put a request in for my iPhone 7 Plus to be unlocked as I am selling it next week after I get my new iPhone 8 Plus. 

 

Depending on how long it takes for the unlock request I might have given the phone to it’s new owner. Will the unlock instructions come through to my new handset so we know it’s done?

@Emzems.  You will be informed by text message that the device is unlocked all that needs to be done then is to put a different network Sim card in the device to process the unlock,  use a O2 or Vodafone SIM card as using a 3 SIM card sometimes has issues.

@Chris_B Thanks. So the text would come through to my EE sim in my new handset?
