Have just arrived back from the UK and have two VODAFONE 527 phones which need to be unlocked.

Please help!

Cheers

Clare

Thanks for all the replies. Its going to cost me 20quid a phone to unlock it thru the UK- thought there may be an easier way around it... Ive def been told it can be done- just unsure how.

Would a company in NZ that specialises in unlocking phones be able to sort. I got a quote this avo for $50 a phone, is this true or will i have to go through VF UK?

These chaps say they can unlock the Vodafone 527 for $14.99 (assuming it's US dollars) and Vodafone UK is an option to get it unlocked. http://www.unlockallcellular.com/vodafone-unlock-code-p-1549.html

These guys look legit. They say - All our Unlock CODES are 100% genuine and guaranteed, if for any reason your unlock codes are not found in our database then we will issue a full refund.

Let us know how that goes.

No worries, good luck and let us know if it works! Remember it takes about 1-3 days with these guys.
