Unlock Code - Moving abroad



I am moving to New York with work for 6 months. I am still within contract with Three but would like to get my phone unlocked so I can use my Iphone abroad.


I called Three today and got through to one of your service representatives – they said I can receive an unlock code if I buy out my contract which comes to approx. €600.


Can I just continue to pay my monthly fee (which will cumulate to approx.. €600 anyway) and still get an unlock code?


Your call centre representative offered me no solution and kept saying it was ‘procedure’.

Think you need to be reasonable and/or flexible in these circumstances.


I am due to fly to NYC on Monday so I would appreciate a quick response.


Thank you.


Re: Unlock Code - Moving abroad

Hi Marco1, can you send me a PM with your number, name, address and date of birth plus the make and model of the phone and the IMEI, please? You'll get the IMEI by dialling *#06# from the phone.
