Welcome to Vodafone Community
I had a Smart Mini 7, according to MyVodafone space, and I was offered an Alcatel Idol . I was given a code to unlock the phone by the former proprietary, but it did not work. I have done multiple combinations, thinking it was the PUK, the PIN or other things that I was asked, and.... I am at my last attempt before locking! Yes I know, I should have found this forum before.
How can I do to have my SIM working on this new phone?
Cookie would be correct in advising that only the Vodafone customer, who was the original owner of the handset, can request the unlock code.
I'm afraid Cookie is correct, if the network unlock code that you received is not working, you would need to revert back to the seller of this device. I'm really sorry we couldn't be of further assistance here.
