Hi @nancypilk 

 

What phone are you trying to unlock?

 

If it's an iphone, there won't be an unlock code, if Vodafone have forwarded the request to Apple you only need to keep trying an aternative SIM in the phone or synchronise to itunes to complete the unlocking process.

Hi @nancypilk 

 

In some cases it can take Apple upto 30 days approximately to release an iPhone from their Database after being contacted by Vodafone when Vodafone has accepted your unlock request.

You can only keep periodically inserting the non Vodafone sim card that is activated i.e connects to mobile data etc until you see the confirmation message that its unlocked.

Sometimes hooking upto iTunes can help but isn't usually necessary.

If this continues after around 35 days then re contact Vodafone customer services and ask them to raise this with their Nuc department.

I wish you all the best with this situation.
