Sony Xperia Unlock Code Timescale ?

Anonymous
Not applicable

Hi All
I recently took out a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact on the refresh plan. I have paid the full handset price and the contract has been cancelled on the 3rd of December, I still haven't received the unlock code. I know it can take up to 7 days to get the code, but the last time I got it within 2 hrs. Should I continue to wait till the10th for the code?
Thanks

Hi @Anonymous You should be chasing this up with customer services. It certainly should not be taking this long (although nothing would happen over the weekend)

I've spoken to 3 advisors on the live chat and they keep telling me to just wait. I was thinking I should have received the code before they cut off the contract.

 

Thanks

No you have to request it...but avoid live chat.... ring on the numbers given in the contact us link I provided and speak to someone. Or use the form in the last link on my post....

I used the unlocking form in the My o2 account, it's different to the one I used last time. I don't have a O2 sim to phone them now because its cut off. I will have to pop in the store 

 

thanks

Or give CS a ring in the morning. It is Sunday but the opening times are in the contact us link.....Best avoid live chat they haven't helped you at all so far. To confirm the speed of unlocking one of our members @viridis  had his phone unlocked in 6 minutes...(that's not the norm but it shouldn't be any more than 24hrs)

Z5 was next day.
It should come soon but I would chase it up with cs over the phone as technically, you're not an O2 customer and this may have some effect, but that's purely guessing.
