    You need to contact Vodafone and ask for the unlock
    Or you could get the eBay unlock. Think they are £30-£50

    My wife also recently bought a Iphone 4s from CPW thinking it was unlocked. she put her Tesco sim in it and it locked to thier network, she only realised this when she switched to 3.

    We contacted CPW and tesco and neither would unlock. CPW stated they only sell the phone sim free (not unlocked) and Tesco stated they don't unlock Iphones which are less than 12 months old.

    Method I used to get the Iphone unlocked is listed below.

    Bought a O2 PAYG sim with £20 topup
    Put the O2 sim in and make a call for a few minutes. (make sure you spend no more than a few pounds, you should have atleast £15 remaining)

    Link on link and follow instructions,
    Can I 'unlock' my iPhone and use it on another network? | Support | O2

    Input details and a day later they sent a text, after which i plugged the Iphone into itunes and the phone became unlocked.

    This method may not work for all.

    It's also important to mention that Tesco use the O2 network, hence I was able to put the O2 sim in.
