Vodafone unlocked my iphone se within 24 hours, shockingly fast!fone After the unlock I performed a factory reset

ready to pass the phone to a new user. I do not have another providers sim and I am looking for reassurance that the reset did not relock the phone to vodafone.

Once the phone has been unlocked to all networks by a Nuc or in the case of iPhones Apple do this on request by Vodafone UK a factory reset / reset via iTunes will not remove that @frasdona

Hi @frasdona

 

Vodafone won't have unlocked the phone that quick.  You have probably only received the request acknowledgement, the unlock is then completed by inserting an alternative SIM card or synchronising to iTunes and it's a case of keep trying. If you sell the phone on now it will still be locked.

 

However, once officially unlocked it won't relock when updated.
