Hi @Babyd333 if it was purchased from Vodafone it will be locked to them.

The Locked to the first SIM card was mainly in connection to iPhones @Babyd333

Any phone supplied by Vodafone Uk will be locked to them. 

If a person is on Pay Monthly then x3 bills will need to have been paid on time to qualify for an unlock request. 

Or the new owner can use a Payg Vodafone Sim Card in the phone making calls etc for 30 days and they use the new Payg details to request the unlock. 

Unlocking is free. 


Current Phone > Samsung Note9 _512Gb > Model: SM-N960 Duos.
