Welcome to Vodafone Community
Be careful not to try too many times or you'll hardlock the phone resulting in it needing to be sent away to be reset.
With some Samsung Galaxy phones you may need the mastercode also known as an unfreeze code as well as the Nuc.
Also the alternative network sim card needs to be activated i.e connects to mobile data etc.
And you need to be in the UK.
