Unlocking iPhone 5s

I want to unlock my old phone to pass it on to my daughter. I didn’t realise it was locked to EE and need to sort it by Christmas Day. Any advice?

Re: Unlocking iPhone 5s

@Swilki: If the device had been on your contract for at least 6 months, even if that contract has now been cancelled, you can just apply using the Unlocking your device form as the Pay Monthly option and giving the mobile number that it used to have. It will first show your current phone on that number & ask whether that is the device you want to unlock? If not, you will then have to type in the IMEI of the old phone. 

 

It could take up to 10 days.
