Unlock EE UK iPhone

  1. VERY IMPORTANT: This service supports all ESN - excluding Bad, unclean and Lost and Stolen

Get started and enter your IMEI and Model

Your IMEI number is a 15-digit number unique to your handset. You can find your IMEI number in the Settings > General > About screen, or by dialling *#06#

If you cannot access this screen and you have an iPhone 4 or 4S then simply eject the sim tray on your iPhone. The IMEI will be printed on the sim tray - but please be aware that sim trays are sometimes switched.

If you have an iPhone 5, 5C, or 5S, the IMEI will be printed on the back of the iPhone itself.

Unlock possible - we can unlock this handset on all basebands, up to and including firmware 4.2.1.

Very pleased with the unlock less than 24hr after the first stage but EE was expensive to unlock. Will use the service again but next time on a cheaper network to unlock thanks.

Hi- am suraj from India. When I bought an advertised iPhone 5s from eBay as unlocked, I was in for a surprise. It was indeed unlocked by a geavey sim or rsim. My phones battery drained like anything. More than anything it's the mind which was killing me after paying soo much ( the whole retail price ) I couldn't do anything abt it. Read the reviews here and took the jump. It's a lil costly paying in Indian rupees but it's defiantly worth it. Yaaaaayyyyy my 5s is a new baby again with my preferred sim and network. Thanks a million guys - thanks a million. U are all doing a great job and would recommend this website to anyone. I mean it. Keep it up guys!!!

The unlock was quick and worth every penny,
i would use this website in the future and i will highly recommend this website to everybody that needs an unlock
some unlocks may take a little longer than others i would say give them least 1 week to unlock your phone really easy to use and reliable
and legit and no scams what so ever they will tell you before hand how much they charge and if there will be any extra charges normally there is no extra charge so if you an unlock this is the place to come thank you

I brought a iphone5 off eBay thinking because it was brand new & sealed it would work on any network. But when I put some sim in it was locked. I come across this website & was very unsure weather to pay the £20 to see if they could unlock my phone. In the end I paid it & then paid to get my phone unlocked by them. It took a couple of hours, brilliant I had my new phone working. Great work thank u very much

Mine was locked to EE UK network. Wanted to unlock as i moved out of country. At first order it took little more than time it explined. When I enqueried I got a message that my phone is listed as barred handset. I thought it might be another way to ask more money. I checked with another website to verify and found they were correct. Then i finally decided to go with them. It unlocked like a charm.

Had to wait a little longer than was said but every time I sent a question to ask how it was going was answered straight away. I think I had the hardest network to unlock from which was of course orange. They make it so difficult. Would recommend this company to anyone as I thought brilliant . So if you need to unlock a phone my advice " go for it "

Unlock completed w/in less than 5 workdays.
EE / iPhone 5.
I have moved to a different country (US) and wanted to use the device. Could not get it unlocked by calling EE (UK), since it is around 5.5 months old. They told me they can't unlock the phones used less than six months. After reading the past reviews, I chose officialiphoneunlock. They offered the lowest price, also the earliest possible unlock compared to similar websites.
Very nice work. Very trustworthy service. Thanks guys! All stars.

I was very dubious about getting my phone unlocked online. Did a lot of research via the web. Came across OPU - site looked good - but if it was a scam it probable would look good! Did the first part - took time and then I forgot about it - so my fault for it taking nearly two months. Then had to pay the additional bit - not sure why it is so expensive?? Checked price at a shop and it was going to be more - so hit the CC again.

Last week it all came through and my wife's phone is now unlocked. Good ticketing system for status.

Yep - I'd recommend OPU.

iPhone 3GS locked to Orange and I wanted to give the phone to a friend after I upgraded, I was very nervous about "jailbreaking" and I was very happy to find the web site. Everything went very smoothly - just as they described on their web site - no special tech knowledge needed.

I will use this service again after my next upgrade which I hope will be soon.

I tried a number of different companies/organisations who promised to unlock my phone without any real success but eventually found PhoneUnlock.

Whilst the service is a little more expensive than others it actually delivered what it promised - a genuinely unlocked iPhone not a jail broken failure. I can now use my phone on any network I choose and it works. No failures if I update my OS or the need to Jailbreak it again and again.

It actually works and the service was delivered exactly as promised, was within the timescale promised and the instructions to complete the process were clear and informative.

I will definitely use the service again should the need arise and thoroughly recommend PhoneUnlock.

Very impressive service
Reliable and confidence building is there anything furred to be added ? Delighted and totally happy. Easy to use website so you know exactly where you are going and progress can be tracked all the way. Both apple and Vodafone authenticated that unlock is genuine and cannot be reversed.
Definitely will use again and recommend

I had read several bad reviews regarding this site and normally I would steer well clear but with this website I took a chance. I submitted the request last Friday 14th and my iphone 5 was unlocked today. I would recommend this company as a trusted unlocking site. Speedy, efficient and did what they advertised. Be patient and it will work!

I’ve been looking for over a year now on a way to unlock my iPhone. Out of nowhere I found this website! It took me a full week to decide and proceed and try to unlock the iPhone. The customer support was outstanding in answering my questions. They deliver what they advertise!!Within six hours received an e-mail saying that my iPhone was unlocked and what I had to do to unlock. If I buy another one I’ll be sure to comeback. Not 5 stars service but 10 stars!!! Thumbs up from Portugal :)

I came across this company online and spent some time checking them out and comparing it with others. I was very skeptical about it at first especially after I could not send the money directly using my debit card and they do not have a Paypal account which I think they should so people can be more at ease and to make it worse, I am located in the Islands of Cape Verde, est Africa.But anyway I sent the money transfer through my bank and was eager to get unlocked from T-Mobile UK. But 1st I had to be very patient since it took a few days for the money to be cleared, then another 24 hours for them to get the response from Apple servers. I sent the money on Tuesday, it was recieved on Thursday and I received the e-mail telling me that I was unlocked on Saturday morning (a week-end, mind you). That's why I feel nothing but pure joy joy joy, because these folks are real and they take care of their customers. I was even so happy to know from the web designer, that the concept for the site was done in Cape Verde when he came here on vacation months ago. Well folks, there you have it. I trust them totally and I will do business with them again and will tell all my friends about them. Thank you again for this new found freedom for my Iphone.

Very good service. One that undercuts the local retailers on the renowned 'backstreet stalls' which also charge £50+ and demand to take your iphone off you for 3 days. Very easy to pay and very quick and efficient service with an email notifying you straight away once the unlock is complete. I highly recommend this service not only for its ease, efficiency but also it's quality being an official Apple unlock which stays permanently unlocked for the future. 9/10

My iPhone 5 was locked to EE, I pre-ordered with Official iPhone Unlock as the unlock wasn't currently available. I have to admit I had a few reservations initially in case I lost my money but took the risk. I expected to wait a few weeks but within a week I had an email to say the unlock was available so I paid the balance and my phone was unlocked within 2 days and works perfectly. I would happily recommend this company to anyone!!

Paid Monday, phone unlocked Tuesday.
Could not use phone otherwise since I moved out of the UK for work for three months and EE could not be bothered with helping a paying customer.

I would recommend them to anyone who has a phone locked.
The cost is high but paying roaming fees would have been much higher...

Factory iPhone MEI Unlock for iPhones locked to EE UK. Unlock your iPhone with a factory IMEI unlock and make your iPhone sim-free. Supports all baseband and firmwares including the latest iOS 7 and beyond.

Your iPhone is permanently unlocked and will remain so on updates with iTunes as it is an official unlock.

Our service is performed from the comfort of your own home. NO jailbreak hacking of your iPhone is required. Using our EE UK-approved IMEI unlock, your warranty remains intact and your iPhone simply becomes a factory unlocked unit.

Prices starting at £89.99

How to unlock iPhone 4, 4S, 5, 5C, 5S locked to EE UK

Step 1: Simply enter your IMEI on the Buy Now page - using our direct connection to Apple we will tell you instantly what carrier your handset is locked to and whether it is locked to EE UK.

Step 2: The unlock price and timeframe will be displayed for an unlock for an iPhone locked to EE UK and you simply enter your email address (for the unlock notification when done) and enter your credit/debit card details.

Step 3: Once we have marked your iPhone as unlocked from EE UK we will send you an email, containing easy to use instructions on how to carry out the unlock - it's literally as simple as plugging your iPhone into your computer and iTunes will display a message telling you that your iPhone is now unlocked (see below). Alternatively, if you already have service on your iPhone locked to EE UK or have access to a WiFi network, the unlock will be applied automatically Over The Air.

How we are different from the crowd

  • INSTANT carrier checking - never buy the wrong unlock again - other sites make you wait hours if not days if you choose to check your carrier first, and also will refuse to refund if you choose the wrong network when purchasing an unlock. However with just your IMEI we give you everything you need - guaranteeing you are purchasing the correct product. We take the guessing out of unlocking.
  • The fastest unlock delivery (check the reviews!)
  • Telephone support which is actually answered rather than a recorded message going nowhere. Remember we aren't robots though and don't work 24/7 - please call us during UK working hours Monday to Friday.
  • Status of your unlock is updated hourly, from submission right through to unlocking.
