Unlock code held hostage

Posts: 4
I requested an unlock code via the online form but I was rejected for an unspecified reason. When I used the web chat option I was made to jump through hoops (asking for my last dialled number in the past 7 days, when I had not dialled any) only to be told that a request would be sunbmitted on my behalf. This was lat Friday. It is now Wednesday and still no unlock code. Although my phone was bought outright and I was pay as you go customer. My number has already been cleared for porting. So I don't understand why three keeps holding my phone hostage while I am already paying for another provider.

Depending on the who made the phone will depend how long it takes to get the unlock code. Sometimes, it may take up to 20 days.

It's always good practice to get the unlock code before porting.
If you had an insurance claim or a replacement handset it can take longer

Hey @cordovez 👋 @TetraxSonic and @billbond4 are correct, there are many factors as to why you may not get the unlock code immediately. What type of phone are you unlocking? Mairéad

Once a code is requested to Apple we have to wait for them to unlock the phone. can you PM your details and I'll follow this up for you?
