Hi all, has anyone any success in unlocking the Huawei P30 Lite from Vodafone ? I've seen the listings on eBay etc but was unsure if they actually "worked". Would appreciate any suggestions or a point in the right direction.

Having used them here and there in the past they do work. Look for sellers with at least 1k+ recent positive ratings. Some also offer refunds if you record the code not working so I would use those.

Also use ebay.co.uk site as you get better terms of purchase to claim back through if it goes wrong.

Is there any way to permanently cancel a port if you buy one of these phones at the porting price?

Ok, but I meant before porting in the first place.

You'd likely have to request a port off Vodafone. Which theyd unlikely do as you would be expected to have a minimum spend of credit before they oblige.

If your buying an Eir SIM to do this offer. You need to it up and use it for a day or two.

Confirmed by the nice fella in the VF shop. Said he had a good few rejected but when topped up and used for a day they went ok

Find that hard to believe unless it's something they've just implemented today. Someone on Adverts already selling 4 Pixel 3As he sourced from Vodafone so don't think he had 4 active sim cards to dispose off.

How would Vodafone monitor activity such as top ups and usage on competitors networks anyway. As far as I'm aware the only means of verifying that a number exists is they send you a text number on the number you're looking to port which you have to enter upon purchase.

You just need to have the eir SIM in a phone to receive the port code from Vodafone, you don't need to have ever used it

Yep, to receive the porting code but it's possible that Eir reject porting requests on SIMs that have never been used.

Doesn't matter. Vodafone are definitely not checking sims. Put mine in phone for first time five mins before ordering and never topped up. All the cancellations seem to be for multiple orders.

I received eir sim in Tuesday, bought A20E straight away. Didn't need to top up. That said I ordered sim online, OP refers to buying a sim, suggesting it was bought in a shop. Its Vodafone sending the code, not sure if eir could block it?
