Considering buying a mobile from CeX that is locked to Vodafone.
Asked in-store at Vodafone and was told it’s no problem to unlock it but you have to do it online and the maximum cost is £20.
Looked online and they seem to make you jump through a lot of hoops which is making me wary.
It seems as if I will have to register a SIM with Vodafone, use it for 30 days and also use the phone for 30 days, plus I have to prove ownership as it’s second-hand.
I have a Vodafone PAYG SIM over 30 days old with no credit so I guess I can use that but would probably have to top-up £10 so I can use it in the phone over the next 30 days.
So in total it might well cost £30 plus I’m not sure it’s guaranteed and it sounds a pain so I’m cooling on the idea.
Nobody selling unlock codes on eBay unfortunately.
