Welcome to Vodafone Community
I have bought a phone locked to Vodafone and I know that I need to become a Vodafone customer in order to unlock it. My question is, if I get a free pay as you go sim, do I need to load any money onto it for this to work?
Yes as you need some activity on the Vodafone Payg account which means phoning and texting or using data.
This latched the iPhone's serial number to the Vodafone Payg account.
