    This is kind of a 'what came first the chicken or the egg' question.
    OK, here goes, I have a locked to EE Huawie Nexus 6P (no sim) which I recently purchased second hand from Ebay. My old ORANGE phone takes a different size sim, so I ordered a replacment new Nano ORANGE SIM which I eventually want to use with the Nexus 6P. Obviously I am unable to register my new ORANGE SIM on the Nexus because as already mentioned the phone is locked to EE at present.
    I want to purchase unlocking codes, but my question is, does a working sim need to be present in the new phone in order to use codes to unlock, or are the codes sent via email and can be typed into the phone without the need for a sim to be present at all? or do I need to get and register an EE sim before I can proceed to unlock the phone in order to get back to the network I wish to stay on which is ORANGE?
    I would be so grateful for any assistance....Thanks

    Hi, couple of things:

    1) yeah a sim needs to be active in the phone for you to input unlocking codes
    2) EE is Orange - well it's Orange and T-Mobile combined.
    3) Have you checked a sim in the phone to see if it's locked, usually Nexus devices are carrier unlocked.

    You should pop in to the EE shop and speak to someone, they're pretty helpful
