Hi rbgargante,

 

I've edited your number out for security purposes. As this is a public forum, it could be viewed by anyone and I'm sure you wouldn't want it to be used for untoward purposes.

 

Kind Regards,

 

George.

Hi rbargante,

 

As Vodafone UK don't provide network to the Channel Islands, any iPhone purchased from us would need to be unlocked. The easiest way to do this would be to order a PAYG SIM and ensure it has £20 credit on to cover the cost of a Network Unlock. If you click the link you'll see details of how to arrange the unlock.

 

Kind Regards,

 

George.

Hi,as long as you have a UK sim topped up with £20 and the IMEI of the phone then Customer Care should be able to put in a request for the Network Unlock code for you.. They will not be able to do this without you having a UK number

http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Pay-As-You-Go-Services/Can-not-top-up-M%C3%B3bil-number/m-p/936307#M1...

 

 

If you are using a registered credit/debit card to top up, there is a limit to the amount and number of top ups which you can use the same card for in a 30 day period.

 

Try using a different card to top up. 

 

You will not have any problem getting the iphone unlocked by submitting the unlock code request form and as soon as Vodafone receive a response from Apple, you will receive an email top let you know that you will be able to use an alternative SIM and unlock the phone through itunes.
