iPhone 7 simlock

I try to unlock my iPhone 7 (bought from EE), I filled unlocking form on last Friday, I know it's 10 days, but last time, when I tried to unlock another iPhone from EE it took more than 14 days (when unlock in Vodafone took 2 days), so I would like to ask is it possible to unlock bit faster?

Re: iPhone 7 simlock

@chrisbp  But when did you get your device ?  As it's 6 months from the sale of that device not the release date of the iPhone 7 

 

and thats 5 months from release day 

 

16 of September to the 7 February,  = just under 5 months.   

 

try the 16 of March for 6 months after release date.

Re: iPhone 7 simlock

Hello @chrisbp you can query the status of the unlock by calling customer service on 150 from your EE phone or 07953 966 250 from any other but apart from that not much can be done until they contact you no. Hopefully you hear back from the unlocking team soon. 🙂

@chrisbp  Did you get this yourself from EE ?   If you did when did you get it ?  As EE will not unlock a device until 6 months have passed from the time of purchase.   If you purchased this 2nd hand the 6 month rule still applies and seeing as the iPhone 7 has not even been out 6 months yet it will not be unlocked even if that device was purchased on launch day.
