Unlocking with Vodafone


Does Vodafone lock phones?
All Vodafone pay monthly and pay as you go handsets bought after July 2013 will be locked to the network.

Is there a charge to unlock a phone? Does a time limit apply?
Vodafone customers on pay as you go can unlock their phone for free.
To be eligible to do so, pay as you go customers must have used their phone number with the handset for at least 30 days.
Pay monthly customers can also unlock their handset free of charge.
If you received your device from a friend or family member they will need to request the unlock code on your behalf.

How long does it take?
It can take up to 10 days.

What do I need to do?
To unlock your phone, you can call 191 from a Vodafone number. Vodafone also provide an online form and live chat to make it easier to unlock.
