    Hello all.

    To cut a long story short, my wife upgraded her 5S to a SE. I am upgrading later in the year but want a IP7 but to get into iOS I'm keeping her 5S rather than selling it.

    On average ohow long am expected to wait before I can activate another sim after requesting an unlock two days ago.

    I did my o2 5C and it completed in two days but I fear EE are going to keep me waiting!!! Anyone else able to share their EE unlock experience?

    I think you have to restore the phone before the unlock works.... I might be wrong about that though.

    You'll receive a text from EE on the contact number you provided when requesting the unlock once the unlock is completed. The longest I've known it take is about five days.

    I have never restored any iPhone I've had after being unlocked. I've never had any problems doing it that way.
