Today I received another letter in which the burnt: "We are unable to request Number Unlocking Code for Mobile Number 07*******40 . Your account details are not updated.
Also we are unable to request free NUC for PAYT handset within 12 months from connection date. This will be charged at £ 19.99.What shall I do? I can use my iPhone, because I live abroad

You will have to pay the £19.99 fee if the handset is within the 12 months of conection date.
Is your handset being used on Vodafone at present? As that may be why the 'details are not updated' message appears, the phone's IMEI number needs to appear on Vodafones database so that they can unlock it.

Thanks for coming back to me here. If you have already paid then you do not need to worry about this. You do need to be using a Vodafone UK SIM card though.
Have you checked that it isn’t already unlocked by hooking the phone up to iTunes with the non Vodafone SIM inside?
If you have a spare minute could you please take the time to fill out a short feedback form about me?
You can do so here

I was looking to buy a iPhone 4 shortly but this unlocking prob. is bothering me. Have u been able to get out of this prob. at last nd how? Pls. share......
If you buy the phone from Vodafone and it is used on the Vodafone UK network Vodafone will unlock it for free if it is on contract or for £19.99 if PAYG.
The earlier poster was experiencing proplems as he was using the phone on a Russian network.
In the UK all you need to do is to complete this form:

As you bought the phone without a contract have you ever used the phone on the vodafone network to make / recive calls?
If not then the IMEI number will not been shown on the Vodafone system and therefore Vodafdone will not unlock it.

You say you have paid for the unlocking and have a receipt so there should not be any need to pay again.
In post #5 you say you are using it in Russia with a Vodafone sim? If that is correct what network are you using it on?

New message from NUC are so nice
We are unable to request free number unlocking code for PAYT mobile number 07787****0 within 12 months from the connection date. If you still wish than this will be charged at £ 19.99. What does it mean? Why I should wait? It means that Vodafone took the money and does not do things that should?

To unlock the phone a credit of £19.99 needs to be on the number for this to go through. If the credit is spent on calls and texts etc, the credit is not reserved for the unlock procedure.
If you can make sure that this amount is on the PAYG number then request this again from the link above then this will go through.
