Re: Unlocking phone

@Brian16  Is the phone 2nd hand ? If it is you’ll need to call to request the unlock and it will cost you £8.99

 

a phone can only be registered correctly by getting it directly from EE yourself.

Re: Unlocking phone

Did you buy this device yourself new direct from EE or is it 2nd-hand? The process & costs are different.

Re: Unlocking phone

@Brian16  You need to call as mentioned by @Jon_K and you need to pay the unlocked fee via a UK credit/debit card.
