Before we start, you’ll be pleased to know that you might not need to do anything at all. According to Three’s website if you’ve bought a device from it after January 2014 then your device will already be unlocked. So you can just remove the SIM card and put the new one in place and you’re good to go.

Once you’ve completed these steps it will take anything from a few hours to 10 days to get the unlock code for your phone. This will depend on a number of factors regarding the make and model of your phone, but it does usually happen quickly.
Once you get the code you’ll also be given instructions on what to do next and how to go about physically unlocking the device which usually will just involve connecting to the internet after the code has been entered.
