Welcome to Vodafone Community
I recently bought a new LG K4 phone which is locked to Vodafone. I would like to switch to another network. Upon attempting to complete the online form to request a Network Unlock Code, I am unable to proceed further as the page states that only Pay Monthly customers can request a NUC. The phone in question is on Pay as you Go. Is this correct? Why can I not request a NUC on Pay as you Go?
You’ll be able to request a free Nuc Unlocking Code once you’ve used a Vodafone Payg SIM card in the phone making calls, sending texts etc for a minimum of 30 days.
The form and information on this is in > How-do-I-unlock-my-Vodafone-device-if-I-m-not-a-Vodafone-customer.
I have complained about that form - the information that you need to be Pay Monthly is nonsense, all you have to do is make regular use of the phone with a PAYG SIM for 30 days. In fact, you can use the form, but they still haven't changed the wording for the final tick box - as long as you've been able to tick the first 4 boxes, just go ahead and tick the final one.
Sorry, I hate having to advise people to lie - it subverts all reasonable business practice - but at present there doesn't seem to be any truthful way for PAYG customers to get their NUC code.
