I have a Nokia 6111 which was Pay as you go with Vodafone. I transferred my mobile number to a different network and so the old sim was invalid. I got a new sim card and tried to log into my online Vodafone account to change the details but kept getting an error message. In case that sim was faulty I recently got a new one, but have the same problem. My account is still there, but I can't do anything at all with it.
I would like to unlock the phone but I've received a reply from Vodafone to tell me I need to pay for this. Is this correct please as the phone is quite an old one and definitely over 12 months since I got it?
Thank you for your help.

I have had a further update on this situation.
I contacted live chat who told me it wasn't possible to update my details on my old account and I would have to create a new one.
I also heard from nucresolutions who told me that, should I wish to unlock my phone, which is well over 12 months old, I would be charged. I replied to them, explaining the circumstances and had confirmation from them just a few minutes ago that I would be charged.

Once a phone is over 12 months old we can get the unlock code for you free of charge.
Before going any further, have you tried a non Vodafone SIM in the phone already as a lot of the older phones come already unlocked.
If it’s not already unlocked then please take a look at the PM that I have sent you and follow the instructions on the PM and one of the team will be able to pick this up for you.
