freitasm: Vodafone does not lock the phones sold in New Zealand.


From the Vodafone website
http://www.vodafone.co.nz/help/unlocking-your-mobile.jsp
Unlocking your Vodafone mobile

Prior to May 2008, a limited number of locked Vodafone mobiles were released via a number of official Vodafone channels.

If you have purchased a locked mobile and wish to use another provider's SIM, you'll need to request your mobile's unlock code.

This doesn't affect Vodafone NZ global roaming at all. You can still roam with your mobile as usual. However, if you wish to put another network provider's SIM card into your Vodafone NZ mobile whilst travelling overseas, you may need to unlock the mobile first. This includes Vodafone SIM cards from other countries.

Requesting an unlock code

Vodafone New Zealand's official unlocking supplier Brightpoint can be contacted on the following numbers to request an unlock code.

  • From within New Zealand, call 0800 VF UNLOCK (0800 838 656)
  • From overseas, call +64 9 368 7069

Brightpoint operates Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm. If you call out of these hours, please leave a message and Brightpoint will return your call.

How to enter the code

Instructions to do this vary, depending on the mobile model you are using. When you put the new SIM card into your mobile, you should be asked for the code to unlock this mobile. Enter the unlock code you were given by Brightpoint.

Should you experience any problems unlocking your phone, please contact Vodafone's official unlocking supplier Brightpoint on the above numbers.

The phones were locked for a week or so, and Vodafone quickly backed out of locking.

If the phone was purchased during that time it would have a sticker on the box or the phone itself. If there was no sticker the phone is not locked.
