Unlocking iPhone ID Mobile

Found 5th Jan 2018
Hi
Back in May I jumped on the 26 quid/month deal from iD that included an iPhone 7 that I saw here.

I subsequently read about people having to stay on their contract long after the initial commitment period because iD wanted them to wait for months before they'd unlock their phone.
Because I want everything I can get, and because I'm going to travel soon, I figured I'd ask ahead of time. I couldn't find anywhere on the website where to get in touch with them to know when and how I'd be able to unlock my phone, and what would the cost be (I had previously unlocked an iPhone 5C from EE for something like 8 or 10 pounds).

So, I just asked them by direct message on Twitter, and the guy did it for me within a couple of hours, free of charge, no hassles. The very next day I got a text message telling me it was unlocked, and to put a different sim card in it to finish the process.

Only caveat: you have to have been on the contract for 6 months (if you got the same deal as me, you're good to go).

You're welcome. All I could find were bad experiences, so I figured I could share this in the hope that it would help others.

They said they have put a request into apple for it to be unlocked and it can take up to 28 days for them to do it. I'm in no rush so it's fine
This is normally why I buy SIM only deals and by my phones elsewhere. When I used to get pay monthly contracts I had issues with many networks when unlocking my phone.

I used to do that as well, but for me this deal has been brilliant: phone unlocked for free, and a decent price. Unlocked phone + 2 years of data, voice, text messaging ended up costing me the same price as the phone by itself straight from apple (£600).

Yes this is great deal though, I currently have a sim only deal with ID (unlimited texts, 500 minutes and 3GB data with rollover) Just right for me
