Sorry my English not so good.

I bough a phone from Turkish Customs. But the phone have a simlock from Vodafone UK. How can i open this simlock?

I live in Turkey. And don't know any details about phone.

Unfortunately Vodafone UK won't be able to unlock it for you as a person needs a Vodafone UK account with a sim card that's been used in the iPhone in the UK.


Your options would be to ask the original owner to unlock it Which I appreciate isn't an option due to how you've purchased the iPhone.

Or send it to someone you know in the UK to use a Vodafone sim card in it and they request the unlock after meeting the 30 day usage criteria and send it back to you.

See the other criteria via the Nuc link at the side of the forum.

Or have a Highstreet Store that advertises they unlock phone's unlock it for you @Ali0634 

Or sell it on.
