Need a favour from anyone on a Vodafone Contract!

Found 5th Nov 2008
Hi all,

I recently purchased a phone from ebay. It was locked on Vodafone. From what I read here a while ago, I assumed that Vodafone unlock the phones for free.

I spoke to their CS and they advised me that they will only unlock the phone for free if anyone with vodafone contract rang them up and asked for a NUC (Network Unlock Code). I told them the whole story of eBay and they checked to confirm that the phone was sent on a contract but cannot unlock it as I dont have a Vodafone contract.

Any of you kind people here willing to phone them up for me and ask for the NUC code?

For all your time and effort I could also pay £5 into your paypal account once my phone is unlocked!
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

BTW phone that needs unlocking is a Blackberry 8310.

I have just ordered a phone but thought it would be unlocked but I rang and checked and apparently it will be set to Vodafone so I would be eternally grateful if anyone could ring and get a code for me!

many many thanks in advance!
