Hi ken218 and welcome to the eForum
Thanks for your post here.
When did you request the unlock? It can take 48 hours for the unlock to process.
Have you tried hooking your phone up to iTunes with the non Vodafone SIM inserted and synchronising? This is how the unlock is achieved so give it a go and let me know how you get on.

To unlock a phone the IMEI number needs to be active on the Vodafone UK network and the request for unlocking must be made by the person to who the phone was supplied on contract.
If the phone was originally a PAYG phone then it can be unlocked for £20, but it still needs to be active on the UK newtwork to do so as you need to top up a PAYG sim for the process.
BTW it is not a good idea to make public either your IMEI number nor your phone number / name.
