Unlocking the Netgear Nighthawk M2

Hi, just making sure I'll be able to unlock the Netgear Nighthawk M2...

I'm planning to use it abroad, so when locked it's useless...

Re: Unlocking the Netgear Nighthawk M2

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

Directly from the EE website, with 30 days rolling contract.

Re: Unlocking the Netgear Nighthawk M2

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 originally came with.

 

Where are you planning to take it? Some MBB routers are only designed to work in Europe.

Hi @LightYear,

 

Welcome to the EE Community. 🙂

 

Don't worry, you won't need to wait six months if you purchased it with a 30 day plan.

 

Let me know if you have any problems.

Re: Unlocking the Netgear Nighthawk M2

Sorry, ignore the 6 months as you bought the device outright.

Re: Unlocking the Netgear Nighthawk M2

Were you able to unlock it ? Asking because in the same predicament.

 

Also asking one of the EE moderators. If I'm happy to pay the £8.99 can I unlock it before my 30 days have elapsed ?

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