Have you been unable to unlock it since the last post yesterday?
Just in case I have chased this up again with our NUC team. It's more than likely that I wouldn't get a response over the weekend from them so I'll be back on with a response early next week. If it has been unlocked in the meantime please let me know.

Hi my problem is the same,now im gonna sound thick but i cant even find system restore on itunes,and my phone still says network carrier is vodafone,im using a brand new orange simcard,second one.do i have to do a reset on phone too,i have icloud switched on.

you need to connect the phone to itunes with a vodafone sim in the phone, although it does sometimes work with no sim, on the main screen for the phone in itunes two buttons should stand out "Check For Updates" and "Restore" you will want to click restore.

The SLA on iPhone unlocks is 5-7 working days (which would be today). Can you pop the none Vodafone SIM into your iPhone and sync with iTunes?
If this still doesn’t work, I have sent you a private message so that we can look into this further for you.
You can find your PM inbox here
Your friend will be able to submit a new request. However, because you are only allowed one free unlock per number on the account, this will now be charged at £19.99.

Hi there bugsym1,
Many thanks for your post.
Did you ever follow the instructions in Wayne's PM? I've searched all of Vodafone UK's email queues and can't find any emails from your registered eForum address.
Could you let me know the email reference number or the unlock request number so I can check on the progress?
