Free Phone Unlocking - Vodafone

Hi Guys!

Vodafone is offering a free service for all it's Vodafone customers who have purchased a phone through them that is locked to their network to unlock their mobile phone completely free of charge!

You need to be a Vodafone customer and your phone has to be registered in your name, this might also work on phones which have expired contracts as they did confirm it will work but my phone itself was within the contract period.

You need your phones IMEI number which you can get by typing *#06# on your phone which you want unlocked, you will then be presented with a bunch of numbers, write this down, now you need to call Vodafone customer services on 191 and request for your phone to be unlocked, make sure you explain that you are a customer and that you have a contract/had a contract and want it unlocked, they will ask you for your IMEI number, give it to them.

I've just unlocked my iPhone 4 and it works perfectly on Tesco Mobile & T-Mobile! Enjoy this offer Guys!

Don't doubt the offer, just can't see what the benefit to them is - do they want you to buy another handet off them and give the old one (which, presumably you've already pai for) to the kids?

always been free whilst in contract, chargeable otherwise. same with o2, I've used both. nothing new here but at least it brings it to the attention of people who don't know about it.

Not true, it used to be exactly the opposite: They'd charge while in contract but do it for free once out of contract. Actually I am rather surprised that has changed.

It's now free whilst in a contract but i think there is a minimum term and it is also free when out of a contract, Vodafone is offering all their old customers this service as i think all the new handsets come unlocked.

my brother recently bought a iphone 4 locked to vodafone on ebay this was never stated in the listing tho. no one in my family is on vodafone.
Do you think he will be able to get it unlocked by ringing up without knowing the original contract owners name?or by not being a vodafone customer?

My contract with Vodafone is ruinning out in few weeks. I called them last week asking to unlock. They sent me immediately instructions and the code. But funny enough the "Enter code" message never poped out and then I realised that my phone was unlocked all these two years :)

I did this through their online chat thingy... before any offer like this.

Just asked them and they said 'OK'

So the title should reflect this is just for people on a contract with vodafone. Which is a said situation to be in. I hate Vodafone. I had a phone returned to them as faulty and no refund from them in 6 months. In the end, I wrote to Moneywise who contacted them and finally got my money back.

Hi guys, has anyone who brought an iphone 4 locked on vodafone from ebay get it unlocked using this service? As I have read that only the original owner/ person who took the contract out can actually unlock the phone. Not sure about payasyougo.
