@Philip11 If you're still in touch with our team via email, I can assure you we'll continue to look into this, until your phone is unlocked. Is someone currently handling your unlock query for you?

@larsfole I'm sorry you're still waiting on a response from your email into our team. Please can you provide your unique email reference number? (this is located in the subject field starting #) I'll then be able to chase up the thread for you.

@larsfole I've checked and we last contacted you on the 4 April, if you'd like to discuss your query further; please get back in touch via email. 

@Philip11 I've had a look for the reference number you provided, it looks like it's one number short though. Please double check this and get back to me. 

Thanks for getting in touch @emma_williamss. Are you trying to unlock your phone whilst in Vietnam? We can't guarantee this will work, as it needs to be connected to the Vodafone UK network for the unlocking process to be completed.

Hi TJ, yes I'm in Vietnam, that may explain why I can't get through the PUK stage - I have a PUK code form my new provider but this keeps giving the unsuccessful error message. Any advice on how to avoid buying a new phone! Thanks
