Trying to unlock my Nokia 7.1. Followed instructions, inserted non vodafone sim but no SIM Unlock screen opens. 

Is there a way to force it to open?

Hi @deejayvu  what happens when you put the sim in? Is the phone picking up the other network? Could the phone already be unlocked?

The phone definitely is not unlocked. 

When I put the other sim in and turn on, nothing happens. The sim unlock screen should open, but doesnt. I have seen instructions using #PW+code+1# but cannot get the PW to appear, even entering using 3 stars and 4 stars respectfully
