Phone Unlocking Processes directly with the Principal Carriers in the UK

When dealing with a SIM-locked smartphone, the very first option to consider is always to contact the ones that enabled the lock in the first place (your phone’s original carrier in this case). That’s why we’ve made a short list of how you can fix your device with the principal wireless carriers in the UK, so check it out or go to the next section to learn what other SIM-unlocking alternatives you have.

How to Unlock an O2 Phone

All you need to do is contact the network provider directly, they don’t charge anything for the process and you only need the phone’s IMEI number; if you have a Pay Monthly phone, call 202, and if you have a Pay As You Go phone, call 4445 (click here to learn more). Remember that you’ll still need to meet theย minimum term of your contract if any, and that the process can take up to 10 days.

How to Unlock a Mobile Phone from Three

As this carrier has been selling unlocked devices only for a while now, they don’t have much information on their website about this process. However, you canย contact the Three customer service department at 333 and place your unlock request with them โ€”the process can take up to 7 business days and there’s no chargeโ€”.

How to Unlock EE Smartphones

The SIM-unlocking process with this network provider is very easy and you can complete it from the comfort of your home. Simply visit EE’s device unlock module, enter the phone’s IMEI, run a device check, and follow their unlocking instructions (they can take up to 10 days to approve your request).

How to Unlock a Vodafone Phone

In this case, they have aย SIM-unlock code request form that you’ll have to fill out online to check if you are eligible for the lock removal process and submit your order if so. This takes from 72 hours to 10 days, but it all depends on your specific case; either way, you’ll need to provide them with the following key pieces of information:

  • Your email.
  • Your mobile number.
  • Your phone’s brand and model.
  • Your IMEI number.

What does it mean when a Phone is not Eligible for a Carrier Unlock?

As you might know, asking your network provider (Virgin Media, Tesco, iD Mobile, etc.) to unlock your smartphone doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll do it. This is because there are certain requirements you need to meet for the carrier to approve your submission. For example, the phone cannot be blacklisted, your account must be up to date, and you must be the phone’s original owner, among others.

So, suppose you already placed the SIM-unlock request directly with the device’s original carrier but it turns out you’re not eligible. In that case, it means you don’t meet one or more of their eligibility requirements. However, this doesn’t mean it is impossible to unlock your phone, on the contrary, it can be very easy if you use an external tool to complete the task.

When should I Consider an External SIM Unlock?

  • If you bought a second-hand mobile phone and can’t contact its previous owner for them to place the request with the carrier.
  • If the smartphone is flagged as lost or stolen or reported on the blacklist database for any other reason (or was at any point).
  • If you’re not on good terms with the provider or simply don’t want to wait the 7 or 10 days they normally take to approve network unlock requests.
  • If you haven’t met the carrier’s minimum period of active paid service and don’t want to wait so long.

SIM Unlocking your Phone without Contacting your Network Provider

If you want to start using SIM cards from other carriers but don’t want to call the company locking your phone or don’t meet their requirements, SafeUnlocks’ ultimate serviceย is the perfect solution. What we do is we unlock phones by IMEI through our online platform, which can generate the same unlock code you would get if you completed the process with the carrier.

This is possible thanks to our innovative system, which counts with the same programs, algorithms, and software that carriers have, but as we are a third party, we don’t ask you to meet any requirements or conditions. So, if you want an easy, safe, practical, and quick method to remove the SIM restrictions from your Android phone, iPhone, or iPad (a cellular one).
