    Unlock I-Phone 4 S --- Help please if poss??

    Hello All,

    My son has got the above said phone of his grandad (hand me down) and it is locked to Vodafone - is there a way to unlock it without paying 20 or 40 quid?

    Thanks,

    FP.

    It's possible but it's not a forever unlock. The only way for it to be unlocked properly is to pay the provider. It's expensive but no hassle.

    Just ask grandad to ring Vodafone and request the unlock. If the phone is out of contract it won't cost you a penny

    They will unlock it for free for the original owner.
