Trying to switch Iphone to another provider but locked to BT

Hi,

I'm trying to move my mum's phone over to another provided, it is an iphone and it won't accept the new sim. How do I get BT to unlock the iphone? Many thanks for any replies, much appreciated!

Thanks, that link was where I started off, you just go round in circles, there is never a point where it mentions ring this number or email this address? thanks

Many thanks for the help, do you know if I can do this via messaging or email as the phone lines have very long waiting times at the moment. Also do you know if they will even be prepared to unlock the phone as it was bought originally from cex and I suspect was locked to EE on the sticker which is why it worked with a BT sim but not a SKY sim? much appreciated!

Hi @zangl if it was originally locked by EE then you will need to contact EE directly to get it unlocked.
