Couldn't see this posted already and it might be old news but I will finally unlock my phone now it's a more reasonable price.

Description taken from EE community forum

It will now cost you £8.99 to unlock your devices from EE not £20.42..

If your device is on contract you can unlock this with your contract. Only after 6 months usage first.
If your device is a second hand you have to use a pay-as-you-go Sim card. And this can be done the moment you set up an account and top it up to pay the unlock fee.
You can not use a Sim only contract to unlock a device but you can get a PAYG SIM card and do it that way.

Any replacement devices that have been replaced via insurancea a proof of replacement has to be sent to EE.

Any Device that you've replaced yourself you need to get a pay-as-you-go Sim card and take that route.

EDIT: It might also be worth taking a look at SupremeJaguar's free £5 credit deal. Don't know if the credit can be used for unlocking but £5 is £5.

I've just tried it and got the reply 'Thanks! Your credit is being processed and will be applied shortly.' Sorry have only just seen this.

Seems you cant use "credit" towards the unlock cost.

Didn't know this so thanks for the heads up!

Great news.

I got one of those "100GB for 2 months" sims from ee.

I popped it into my G2, rang 150 and got offered a lumia 435 at a discount of £34.98 all in. They asked if I had made any transactions, confirmed I hadnt as new sim, but still gave me the upgrade price (the price includes a £10 credit which is being applied to my number).

So I can now use this the credit to unlock.

Worth letting people know as you may get cheaper prices by picking up a £1 sim.

btw I need a lumia for a project im on - its not replacing the G2 so no need to look at me like a weirdo haha!!

Dang it! Just got mine unlocked the other day and paid £20! Absolutely fuming!

Grr. -_______-

So do I just ring them from the pay as you go sim that I want to pay from? Does it have to be an EE sim or can it be done on Orange?

Good find.. comes in handy for people who bought Lumia 635 for £35 few months back.

Huh? You can unlock it yourself via the website. They just add on the £8.99 to that month's bill.

This is hot as previously EE would not unlock a second user iPhone for example.

I only bought iphone 5sva month ago so 6 months are not over yet. On pay as u go side iit says the phone shiuld be registered on the account. If i bring a paug sim card and register the phone with my account will that work? Thanks

didn't know this, heat added. =)

That's what it says on the site, too register a pay as you go sim and topup the required amount.

Filled in the form to unlock my contracted T Mobile Note 3.Advised £8.99 before completing form but notes after filling form said it was dearer (£20.42 I think??)

Cold from me I'm afraid as it's normally only a couple of quid from ebay and I've never had any issues.

WTF? I paid full price

"You can not use a Sim only contract" I have done just that within the last month or so. (But at £20).

NO one will unlock iPhones for couple of quid so HOT from me!

I was in vodafone today and they said that it is a legal requirement to unlock your phone for free at the end of the contract. If you state this to them apparently they will do it for free. I kind of hope this isnt true.

you'll only pay the £8.99

Thanks OP very helpfull

EE is always a problem to unlock unless you're purchased a handset from them directly. Heat for the second hand unlock thing!

This is a good step , unlocking iphones are very costly if doing from 3rd party

Ee have almost always been unlocked phones

The confirmation came minutes after the online form had been completed but it just said it could take up to 10 days to get your code. I posted literally as soon as I'd submitted the form.

If you've been in your contract long enough and it's expired EE may offer it for free, I managed to get my old iPhone 5 unlocked for free, they just credited my account.

Always worth asking, specially if you're renewing contract.

Will they unlock an iPhone 6 plus for the same price?

The two we have weren't.

amazing hot good EE!

This is excellent, was only looking at unlocking the wife's phone last night, said £20.42, re-checked today and said £8.99. Confused, we thought it was a mistake and went for it anyhow. Happy days and thanks for confirming it is legitimate and not a mistake

Good price.should be free though. It only takes a couple of seconds to copy your imei into a unlocked database. My friend used to do it for orange

Would it be possible to buy an ee payg sim . Put a tenner in it and ask them to unlock my Lumia 535 ?

Don't worry about 6 month rule, when they ask just tell them u have been using it for 7/8 months, they will accept it without checking. I have done it twice

Sorry, commenting is no longer available on this deal.
