Everything you want to know is already in the thread.

You're probably looking at around €30 to unlock, or you can do it for free if you know someone with a Vodafone account and NAC codes remaining on their account.

You select it, but you don't pay for it when buying. You top up whenever you want after you get the phone (or don't, if you don't want to).

The person I got it for has been using the phone with no credit since they got it, and are planning on porting back to 3.

You could also just use a throwaway SIM to port across, much like people did for the Pixel 3a.

Are you sure it's dial SIM? Bought one for €99 before Christmas and it was single-SIM.

Thats weird. I am pretty sure they all are dual sim. Are you using a sd card in one of the slots?

No. The model number suggests it is dual-SIM but the software doesn't have any of the SIM-management options you'd find on dual-SIM phones and it only lists one IMEI number.

I ended up buying the Samsung A40 from Three instead and that is dual-SIM.

3 days ago I tried this, all I had to do was open the Vodafone app,and in top right corner is the chat button.basically just ask for phone to be unlocked and someone will ask you the make of phone and a few other basic stuff.

Have the IMEI number of phone ready to be unlocked.

Within 5 mins later they more or less said,we will send on a code within 21 days and my phone will be unlocked,I only joined Vodafone 6 months ago.

Hopefully this helps.

It will be interesting to see if this works for you. I was unlocked immediately by logging into My Vodafone. This is their criteria:

Bill pay customers:

Your Vodafone account must be paid up to date
You need to be connected to bill pay for at least 12 months or have spent €200 on your account

Pay as you go customers:

Must have topped up by at least €127 in the last 12 months for your first unlock code
Must have topped up by at least €254 in the last 12 months for your second unlock code
Must have topped up by at least €381 in the last 12 months for your third unlock code

If you know someone with an account that meets the criteria, get them to log in to my Vodafone. Then you need to hover over the My Vodafone tab at the top > Device and SIM > Unlock my phone. You probably need to use the desktop site rather than mobile, but the URL you need is:

https://n.vodafone.ie/myaccount/subscriptions/nac.html

Enter the IMEI of the phone and you'll get the unlock code immediately.
