[IMEI number]

Not sure of the ramifications, but is it wise to post your IMEI number in public? (E.g. I could report it as stolen etc).

I would think contacting Vodafone directly, rather than posting a public message on a forum that is not an official customer support channel would be better.

I dont see this as any different to writing your request on a peice of paper, and taping it to the bus shelter across the road from the Vodafone office!

Yes, a very good idea not to post the full-IMEI details, I have seen a handset which allows a new IMEI to be written to it.
