Dear Vodafone,

I have received my Unlock code by email. I inserted my non vodafone sim which prompted me for the unlock code.

I entered the code given to me but it fails every time.

Any help would be very appreciated. The Phone is an Sony Xperia XZ.

I have double checked the IMEI and it was correct.

Thanks

I have NUC number. I am unable to enter it into the service provider lock screen (as per instructions from Vodafone website https://www.vodafone.co.uk/explore/network/unlocking-your-phone/how-do-I-use-my-nuc/index.htm). I get a screen that says Your phone has not been personalised and I am unable to enter NUC.

LG G6.

Hey Vodafone.

 

Got a Sony Xperia XA2 (H3113). I've checked the IMEI several times and the IMEI in the email matches exactly that of the phone, but the code provided does not work.

 

Please advise.

Hi, I have an Iphone 11 and I'm trying to get an NUC code since mid October. Witch is already for almoust 2 months. I have filled the online form. After first 10 working days when it supposed to be supplied to me, phoned the company to get an update, the adviser didn't update the status but applied on my behalf for a new one. And this has happened already 3 times. Looks like they just can't read the notes. Yesterday was the 12th working day after applying, phoned them and they ASSURED me that I will receive the code in the next 24h! Surprise, surprise! Nothing! Phoned again and now I need to wait another 10 working days! worst customer service ever!

Hi @Anonymous 

 

If you meet the criteria needed for unlocking the unlock will have been processed by now with Apple.

 

Did you do a search of the forum before posting ? There are plenty of previous thread that have explained the procedure for unlocking an iphone.  Here is one example:  https://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Unlocking/Unlocking-Iphone-11/td-p/2647081

 

If you are waiting for an unlock code for an iphone, you are going to have a very long wait, Apple process the unlock and remotely unlock the phone on Apple database.

 

Please insert an alternative network SIM in the phone, or synchronise to itunes to complete the unlocking process.  You will then find a message will come up on the screen to let you know the phone has been unlocked.

Thanks for your reply! I'll try it out👍

 

and if it will turn out that simple, it truly will show that all the people from customer service, who I spoke to, are imbeciles!  👏
