Ive received my NUC from Vodafone.
The online instructions say choose your phone, but Voda 340 isnt there, just "Prime" & "Smart"
I tried just entering the code as if dialling a number, but no joy
Is there a code I should enter first?

Hi @nags 

 

Please give this a try.

 

With an active Vodafone SIM in the phone type *#7525*01# into the phone followed by the NUC tap OK and the phone should be unlocked.

 

It would also be worth mentioning that as this is a Vodafone phone, it will have all the Vodafone software with Vodafone internet settings.  If you are going to be using the phone on an alternative network, you will need to download the correct carrier settings, you can usually find these on the network website.

Hi @nags 

 

edited after reading your good news.  Absolutely wonderful well done to you. 

 

Would you please  mention the method you used, this will help other Vodafone customers trying to unlock the phone.

 

To change the phone number, just put the SIM in the phone with the number you wish to use.
