Hoping that someone can help me. I have an iPhone 4s that I wish to get unlocked. I wish to give the phone to my brother who is moving abroad for work. According to my paperwork, I took the €45 24month contract on the 16/12/2011 so therefore it expired on 16/12/2013.
- Can I submit my details through the forum to get it unlocked? Or do I need to post a written request to the "unlocking section" in Meteor? I wish to avoid ringing customer care if possible.
- Is it correct that I need to give the details below to Meteor to get the unlocking code?
Appreciate any help and Happy New Year

What you can do is, right now call up customer care on 1905 and tell them you want your iPhone unlocked, They will ask you for the model and IMEI from the device and then submit it to apple and it will be unlocked in 10 days max but normally done alot faster.
You may also submit it via live chat on the Meteor website using the link below.
Happy new year.

I'm awaiting confirmation that my handset has been unlocked.
I wasn't asked for my IMEI but was told that my handset would be unlocked remotely. As it stands I'm not sure if it has been unlocked, will I be informed when it has?

Sorry for the delay in replying to you, I forgot to subscribe to this thread but have done so now. If you were billpay with meteor then they would have the IMEI already as it is registered to the account upon signing up to billpay with Meteor.
Don't worry though chuck, it will be unlocked.
To unlock the iPhone all you need to do is connect it to iTunes and sync it. You will receive an email to confirm when apple have it ready to be unlocked.
Is there anything else I can help you with mate?

Sorry its not yet unlocked. Have you checked the status with any of the reps to see has it been sent to apple yet?

Got an email from the Unlocking Team on 24 December to say that the request had been received. Ten working days should bring me up to Friay at the latest.

Brilliant. You should have receieved something by friday. Have you tried connect your phone to itunes lately?
on 07-01-2014 06:09 PM
I haven't tried that yet David as according to the instruction on the email a SIM from another network is needed, and as far as I'm aware the new SIM can't be oaded with my number until the phone is unlocked

If you can try connect it to itunes and sync, Youll need to do this with your meteor sim in it mate.
