Your IMEI (356559017630042) doesn't appear to be correct. It may have been disabled by your service provider.

Unlock mobile phone from vodafone


You can discover the unique IMEI number of your phone by entering the number #06# on the keypad.

To unlock a phone means different things to Vodafone, so they may have been confused. See here

If you are in Australia there is an unlock tool on the Vodafone site

Bought a unlocked Samsung galaxy 3 off eBay.... I used it with my optus network sim but after a week when I switch off my phone & switch it back on... It was asking for a Vodafone puk... How & why is this...


It is possible that unlock was done by non-professional or by entering not factory-unlock. Now you're in problems. If you're not technically literated then bring it to cell-unlock shop.

I have a nokia 6300 with vodafone and i put a telstra sim card in it but its saying i need the restriction code to unlock it?


Your phone is locked to vodafone network. You need to get it unlocked before using it with any other service provider.

Unlocking is done by a special software which generates a special code based on your IMEI number. Repair shops have this facility (usually) for a fee.

If you prefer to get it unlocked from Fixya, I suggest you post it as a new unlocking problem & state your city and phone's IMEI #.

To know the handset's IMEI # dial *#06# on your mobile.

Hello James,

I guess your looking for a free way to unlock your phone to all networks...
There are many options available on the net. and i have come across a few free ones aswell..
I have a nokia 6630 which was gifted to me by my friend.. I went to have it unlocked at my local phone shop (the usual price is £5) he told me that there was some internal damage to the phone as someone had previously tried to unlock it via the net.. and that it could be unlocked but would cost me anything from £25.00 onwards..
Therefore, my advice would be that you get it done locally.. even if it costs...
All the Best
