    To clarify things, you needed to sign a contract to get a phone prior to 19/11, however now you don't need to but have to pay 999. Either way, contract or not you're allowed to have the phone SIM unlocked and this doesn't require any time limit that I've read about, though you'd imagine at least two weeks on the contract model since otherwise people could cancel the agreement within a cooling off period.

    Thus if you have a phone with contract after 19/11 there's no need to buy an unlock code, they'll offer it for free. IF you have bought one before then and want an unlock code for free personally I'd call them and threaten to cancel the contract within the cooling off period (minimum 7 days, usually 14 in EU).

    No idea on how the code is implemented, but I'd assume that iTunes knows somehow once it's been entered and then maybe it verifies the information with Apple's servers prior to activating your phone with iTunes (initial setup and after a full restore, and possibly after future firmware upgrades). All speculation at this point.

    Someone in this forum who has a German model needs to get the code so we can experiment on how it works. Again, should be free and if not threaten to cancel since the agreement you signed is still so recent.
