We've seen posts quite frequently from people saying the phone is asking for a Puk @Kavbin 

It's the phone getting confused and isn't actually needed as it's got nothing to do with unlocking.

What I think you need from customer services is a MCK Mastercode also known as an unfreeze code as well as the Nuc.


Or contact the Vodafone Social Media Teams via Contact-us-for-account-specific-queries 

Ask specifically for the MCK.

Current Phone > Samsung Note 10+ 5G _256Gb > Model: SM-N976B.

Samsung One Ui 2.0  / Android 10.


Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch.

Hi @Kavbin 


Try this code before entering the NUC provided by Vodafone, no guarantee it will work but worth a try before contacting Vodafone through the social media channels:  #7465625*638*#. 


The 638 may suggest the model number and this should be found in your phone settings > about phone where you will be able to find the phone model number.
