To complete the unlock you need to place a non-Vodafone sim card in the phone and then connect to iTunes, when, if it is unlocked, you will see a message telling you so.
Ther have been reports that some people have not been able to complete the unlock if their iTunes account is not for the same region that they are connecting to iTunes from. Is you iTunes account a UK account or a HK account?

You may have run into the problem i referred to in an earlier reply.
Some people have found that the iTunes region you connect the phone to unlock it needs to be the same region as the one where you have your iTunes account.
Is your iTunes account based in Europe or Hong Kong / Asia?

The reason the phone is blacklisted is because it has been reported as stolen or lost. Your friend gave you the phone and then claimed on insurance for a new phone. It will be impossible to get the phone working again I'm afraid. Only the original owner can do that or, if I am right, the insurance company that owns it.
You are the victim of a common scam. I hope the phone was given to you and you didn't buy it. If you did buy it you have lost your money.

But it does not change the fact that only your friend can get it unlocked, and if as you surmise he failed to finsh and pay for a contract then he would have to pay whatever is owing,
I would still favour the previous explanation that the phone was reported lost or stolen. Why not ask your friend?

Hi I have upgraded my handset and will be giving my old iphone 4 to a friend, I have requested my phone be unlocked and been advised it will take 7-10 days.
Will my friend be able to do the unlocking himself? and what is the procedure is it simple?

I don't think you will get notification as it isn't actually vodafone doing the unlock.
Vodafone pass the request to Apple, and once with them the timescale could well be 7-10 days... a month or so ago people were reporting up to 3 weeks for an unlock to happen.
