Hello @Pbidder,

If you purchased the handset from us or Carphone Warehouse, we can unlock the handset for you however, this would be unlocked to any UK SIM.
We can't unlock this for international use. Handsets sold from us are sold for UK use.

Though, it may already be unlocked so try a different UK SIM in it to confirm as handsets sold after November 2015 were unlocked.

If you didn't purchase it from us, we can still unlock the device as above, however, you'll need to check with the retailer to confirm international usage.

I called up on a weekend and got ID to unlock my iphone and have inserted a local (Sydney) SIM card. Takes 3-5 days but got the unlock in on the Monday. Makes you appreciate how lucky we are in Europe.

Advise if travelling far to start this process a week before you leave.
