Hello, I am hoping the moderator can help me with a breakdown in communication for my mobile unlock request. I requested NUC by fillng in the form on 1 Apr 2019. I received an email saying I had not been on Vodafone for greater than 30 days, so I needed to wait. The email contained a link to nuc resolutions team which I used to reply that I had indeed used the SIM for greater than 30 days (I started with vodafone on1 Mar 2019 with a 5 pound top up of the sim card which came with the new phone). I got an automated reply with UNLOCK REQUEST REFERENCE [20663882] on 2 April not answering my point. I then phoned up 3 April - after a long delay, the service advisor took my details again and said she would email the NUC team to escalate. I offered my unlock request reference, but strangely she refused to take it - I think she simply raised a new NUC request. I have not had any email or phone acknowledgement since the call on 3 April, so I don't know if anything is progressing on not. Please could you check and let me know what is happening? The phone is a simple phone with help button for my elderly mother and a I need low user payg tariff which I can't find on vodafone hence I need the NUC to be resolved urgently. Thank you.

Hey @Tepe21, I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble getting your phone unlocked. What make and model is it? There might be specific instructions you'll need to input your NUC - you can double check on our unlocking page here.

@BrowneA88 are you trying to unlock your phone using the following steps?

  1. Turn off the phone
  2. Insert an activated non-Vodafone SIM
  3. Turn on the phone. You'll see a prompt to enter the SIM network unlocking code
  4. Enter your NUC

Let me know if you're still struggling after this and I'll be happy to take a closer look into this for.

@mortymajor The NUC you received via email, was this provided by Vodafone directly? If so, is there any other specifics mentioned in the error message when entering the code?
