I have a 2 months old Iphone 7 on EE which I want to give to a family member. The contract sim ill be continuing with in another phone so the contract will still stay valid.
Now, the person im giving the phone to is on Tesco's & i EE wont unlock the phone as i need to of been using it for 6 months before i can make a request.
To get round this, if i were able to find someone who is currently on Pay&GO EE/virgin which has been for over 6 months, and ask them to submit an unlock request using there mobile number and my IMEI.. would that work ?
I have submitted unlock requests in the past from various networks & they always ask for the IMEI, so that along with the details of the current user (valid mobile number for 6 months old+) then i should be set ?
