How do I unlock Vodafone smart first please ????

Found 19th Feb 2016
I've got the smart first and bought a code off ebay and just spent 4 hours trying to put my sim into it!
Eventually I got an enter code box but it says it needs 10 digits whereas the code I've got is 8.
Does anyone know what I should do next please? I'm not very confident with phones.

sure its saying 10 digits and not 10 attempts

simply add a non accepted sim, it will give you a box to type the code, type the code, hit the arrow bottom right hand corner (basically the enter button)
pictures will help greatly if you are still stuck

I've think I must have the wrong code as I'm down to 7 attempts now, starting to panic as my other phone is broken.

No camera at the moment, Its like a little square to type the numbers in and it says 'wrong pin entered!' 'Enter unlock pin NP' remains 7

Yeah you got the "arrow" it's just the enter button maybe I'm confusing myself but it's basically just the enter button to use the code you just entered.
If it's not working get hold of the eBay seller you got the code from say it's not working
If you are near Nottingham I can unlock it for £2.50
The codes generated by eBay sellers will be incorrect as this is an MTK processor and the free solution those sellers are using cannot generate the code you require. It must be plugged into a computer to read the data from it.
