Sim Network Unlock Code

Hi there,

I have just moved to the Uk and have purchased a Vodafone Uk sim for my Samsung Galaxy S3 but when I put the sim into the phone I am asked for a Sim Network Unlock Code.

How can I get the code?

Thanks

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

I received my unlock code, put in the uk sim and entered the code but I keep getting an error saying it has been unsuccessful. How can I fix this?

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

Hiya,
Is the UK SIM recognised by the phone, and does it get service?

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

Hi, I bought a Samsung gt-i9305 off a man on Friday who got it as an upgrade 6 months ago.  I am not on the Vodafone network so is there any chance I could get the SIM unlock code so I can use it please.  Thanks a million.

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

Nope, You'd need the Original Owner to request the NAC for the Handset you got.

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

Hiya,

@Damien - this sounds like it's an issue with the SIM card, a network locked phone would reject the SIM entirely, and you'd get no reception.

 

@Jezz - EJ is correct on this one, you'd need the seller to request the code, or have your own Vodafone mobile account that meets certain spend criteria.

 

Thanks,

Re: Sim Network Unlock Code

Hi there.
I am at the end of my contract and switching network. I spoke to someone there about a month ago who said that I would receive a code to unlock my phone but I still haven't received it. Please could you send it to me?
many thanks
Rebecca

[ Edited ]

You can sim network unlock code from your service provider or else try to get an unlock code from any one of the online unlocking service provider like <snip - selling unlock services is not allowed on this forum and has resulted in your account being permanently banned> Here you can unlock your phone at low cost.
