Locked SIM?

Message 1 of 6 (1,000 Views)

Hi, I have an iPhone 6 that I bought in the uk and used for over a year on Vodafone UK. I moved out here and unlocked my phone to use on Vodafone NZ (5 months ago). I am now returning to the Uk and wondering if my phone is now locked to Vodafone NZ? (I wouldn’t be using Vodafone UK when I go back to the UK). I tried to use the requesting an unlock code on this website but it says the number is not in the system. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @AlysD

 

Vodafone NZ doesn't network lock iPhones, you should be able to use the phone with any provider.

 

Thanks,

Hamish

How did you unlock your UK phone?

Hi.

If a phone is locked you need to contact the carrier the phone was originally purchased from. There will sometimes be an unlock fee.

I believe that will be the only way.
