Hello @umer7699 


The phone if showing as unlocked would then accept any network sim card.

Your phone must not be unlocked.

If you contact Vodafone they can check the status of the phone.


To add......

Are you wanting to unlock an iPhone   ?

If so then..... 

Please Note > The iPhone isn't actually usually unlocked to all networks at this stage when Vodafone email you.

What happens is Apple then process the Networks request and occasionally this can take Apple approximately from a few days upto a further 30+ days sometimes from Vodafone's email to complete an unlock request made by a Network. 

To complete the process please periodically insert an active i.e. connects to mobile network data, alternative Networks Sim Card in the iPhone with hooking upto iTunes is only typically needed if its an iPhone 4 or older although it wouldn't harm to do so. 

From the iPhone 5 onwards there's not normally the need to hook up to iTunes to complete the process. 

When it's unlocked you should see a pop up message and the alternatives Networks name will show in the iPhone's status bar. 


If this is not an iPhone your trying to unlock then please ensure the alternative network sim card is activated  and your currently in the UK.
