    You might as well try what I have done, fill in the Vodafone unlocking request Vodafone UK - Help - Unlock Code Request Form and see what happens? I managed to get Vodafone to unlock an iPhone after I'd only had it a week!
    I put my request in yesterday, I'll let you know when I get a reply.

    Yes you can. your have to either ring them up or go see them. filled in the form and reply back to get in touch with them. visited the shop and they said there isn't any restricktions on it like the lumia 920 had and would cost me 19 pounds something

    yes let me no if they unlock your phone, the only thing i think as to why they wont is because the 32GB is exclusive to them and they wont want any other carrier to have it, maybe after the deal expires they might unlock it then ,

    Can you buy the 925 outright from Vodafone and if so, how much? I can only seem to get contract amounts via the website.

    I asked the previous owner to ask Voda to unlock the phone which is good.

    Has anyone else had Voda unlock a 950 and how long does it take and how does is the code received (SMS/Email/Post etc.)?

    Thanks in advance,

    Has anyone actually received a working unlock code from Vodafone?
    I requested mine, was told the handset had to be registered on network for 14 days, so submitted mine again after the 14 days and paid 19.99. On Friday I received a code and instructions that don't work!

    Dear Customer

    Reference Number: (reference removed)
    Mobile Number: (mobile number removed)
    IMEI Number: (imei removed)

    Further to your communication with Vodafone regarding the unlocking of your Nokia handset, I have set out the following procedure and unlocking code:
    Go to calling application

    1. With the Vodafone SIM card inside the handset

    2. Type ##782# and call

    3. Enter (20 digit code removed)

    4. Your device is already unlocked message shall be displayed

    NB. If the handset fails to unlock, then please do not attempt to enter any sequence more than twice, as you will risk permanently blocking your handset.

    I hope that you will find this information straightforward, however should you require any further information or assistance, please contact the Helpline by calling 191 from your mobile phone or 08700 700191 (Vodafone contract) or 08700 776655 (Vodafone Pay as you Talk) from a landline. You can view a step by step guide to unlocking your handset via the internet using the link below:



    Yours Sincerely

    Yep tried that! I know that is the standard way with a sim from another provider you get the request for the unlock code, and the code supplied didn't work!
    That was the odd thing that their instructions were not what I expected and did not work anyway.

    michael1782 have you had your code yet and did it work?

    For the record, O2 unlocked my 925. I used the online chat and asked them to unlock it as I was going on holiday and wanted to use a local sim card. They didn't charge me.

    have I heck. had to take mine back to shop last week and they replaced it with another and again its gone back due to the vibrator not working so even if they do send me it, it'll be no good. so will have to ring them up again once I get it back.

    They sent the codes via e-mail. First and secound codes they sent had different imei numbers. As ive had to change my phone 3 times so were usless. Rang them up and told them my imei number and within a week they sent me a new e-mail with the right imei number. Replaced vodaphone sim with a different sim. Turnned phone on and entered the 20 digit code they sent and bobs your uncle it said phone unlocked. So what i suggest everyone do is to make sure the code they send has the right imei number to your phone
