I need to know where to input IMEI in my EE settings. Also, I have a foreign address which is not accepted in the unlocking form. Is there any support email with a real person who can answer directly my quesitons?

Try reading EE unlocking guide at the top of the forum you are posting as that explains what you need to do.
There are also some handy FAQ’s and information.

thanks a lot for your fast reply.
I'm trying to unlock my EE phone which I bought a month ago in UK in order to use it in my home country (Italy) with another sim card also. I presently have a pay-as-you-go pack with a credit of 5 gbp, I already fully red the procedures reported as you are suggesting (actually before posting here) but when I start answering the questions needed before filling the unlock form I get stuck when asked the card billing address, because non uk addresses are not accepted (shall I presume the card billing address is my personal home italian address?) and I cannot get further on. Do you have any advice?

I purchased it at the ASDA in 2 North St, Middlesbrough. I can provide further proofs of my
purchase if you want.

Hi again Leanne,
I have a EE profile but my account setting is missing my address for the same reason, I will contact the support team calling at 07953 966 250 and have them to fix this glitch preventing me from accessing the unlock form.
Thanks again for your help

You cannot use the online form & PAYG SIM for unlocking phones not bought directly from EE.
To unlock a phone not bought from EE you need to call Customer Services on +44 800 956 6000 (option 2, option 4) to put you in touch with the Unlocking Team to request an Unlock Code. You will be asked for your email addy. They will take payment (of £8.99) from any valid UK bank card.
Once the process has been started you will receive an email from the Unlocking Team to process the unlock. It can take up to 10 days to complete the unlock.
