EE Phone Unlock for £4.99

Found 13th Mar 2015
This is just optimising chr77's deal for an £8.99 unlock.

You buy a £0.99 SIM from the link, as soon as you receive it, pop the sim in your phone and text STOP PACK to 150.

Then call EE customer services from another EE phone on 150 (costs 20p) or dial 07953966250 from another mobile if you have free minutes. You want the technical phone support option.

Give them your IMEI number and phone number and ask for an unlock which is £8.99. They will tell you you only have £5 credit and you top-up another £4 by card. They register the account and the unlock code should be about 5 days although could be up to 10 days. Very helpful lady when I did it this morning. Even switched tariffs for me so that there was no chance of the £1 tariff activating and credit being lost.

Total cost of unlock £4.99.

Make sure you keep the SIM safe somewhere as this should be eligible for an upgrade in a while as it will show two top ups. Might just turn out to be a really good deal.

Fairly sure you have to be with them for 6 months on payg. This was the case end of last yr.

I bought my Lumia 635 in Jan this year and my SIM arrived in the post yesterday. Unlocked without a hitch.

I forgot to say the questions I got asked where:
Where did you buy the phone from? EE shop direct via phone.
Have you proof of purchase?. No, you didn't send me any.
When did you last top up? Yesterday when I got the free £5.

That's fine she said.

Great, thanks for the info. Can you do this with any locked EE phone though?

Yes they want the SIM registered to the phone for unlocking. Without a SIM with £5 on it, this deal doesn't work.

I have no idea why someone expired this. Seems a bit silly, as should save people a few quid more.

Do u have to keep new sim in phone until it's unlocked or can you put contract sim back in?

No need to keep SIM in. They email unlock code to you. You just have to keep credit on account. Probably better not to have SIM in so credit doesn't get used.

PAYG can be locked imediately now, however if the phone was not bought from EE you will have to mprove it is yours as it may be paired to an active account.

Anyone can confirm if they are unlocking iphones? If yes, does this include i6 & 6 Plus? thanks

Usually the minimum top up is £10. So Im not sure if this deal is genuine.

If you read OP's description, you can purchase a SIM with £5 credit included for 99p. Then pay the additional £4 via credit card during unlock.
So, no need to purchase a topup separately.

OK How to get an EE locked phone now

anyone done iphones?

I paid £22 on there website

Does this work on an iPhone 5?

has anyone successfully unlocked an iPhone? it states on the form you must wait 6 months - they may accept the fee but I just think they will refund unless you have used it for 6 months.

I get it
The top up is (between £5 and £50 in £5 increments)
So you can not top up £4 or £3.50 for example

I want to unlock an Iphone 5 .....the other thread says I need to have the device associated with the PAYG account - how do you do that?

Edit The unlock form states "The IMEI of the device to be unlocked must be registered on their account and not blacklisted."

edit - called up - said the device cant change - so assume you must put in the sim in the phone you want to unlock to activate - otherwise wont work

Good news for those who want to buy pay pay as you go phone with £10 top up from EE , because you can use your £10 top up to unlock your phone. For example buy Huawei Ascend Y330 with £10 top up equals £39.99 total so to buy this phone with £10 top up..... Click on the phone then scroll down the page at the bottom you will see ( + OR JUST TOP UP) click on this option and buy it. once you receive the phone then unlocked it.

So this will work if I have a new PAYG SIM with £10 credit from EE (From the Lumia 735 deal?) Just call that number and they will unlock it?

I have an iPhone 6 on EE that they won't unlock until month 6, if I pop a PAYG sim in (EE) and do as the title suggests do you think it will work still ?
Interesting, also any links to the 99p sims with £5 credit on ?

I still don't get it. Do you have to own 2 phones that are locked to EE to do this?

Thank you for this, we have several phones on EE and I think that my son wants his unlocked.

No. Only one phone required for which they will want the IMEI number to be able to calculate the code. They just ask you to register the ebay sim with them to take the credit. I just happened to call them from my free Sainsbury's sim to save another 20p. Oh Hotukdeals is great isn't it?

Yes because that is genuine credit. Unlike the free £5 credit deal posted here recently that shows up as bonus credit.
