Welcome to Vodafone Community
Are iPhones on Vodafone unlocked right away now, I know the used to be locked and you had to wait 3 months before requesting an unlock but not sure if they are now unlocked out of the box?
From unlock-code-request which is Vodafone's Unlocking Official Page…
“ Good news - many of our devices, including all Apple products, are already unlocked. Just insert a SIM from another network and you should be ready to go. “
Ofcom are bringing in the requirement that phones are locked from out of the box from December 21 so Vodafone are acting now.
To add if a phone is presently locked to Vodafone then Vodafone have removed the requirement to have to wait 30 days from ownership before being able to unlock.
There will be 2 requirements to Unlock a phone via Vodafone UK .:
• The device was purchased from Vodafone
• The device is not currently blacklisted.
All other requirements will be removed.
I hope the above helps.
