    • Unlockers can calculate it, with your imei + provider code. You can find them on the sticker in the battery holder of the V875. But another question. Did you buy the Phone yourself and how long ago? If so, Vodafone has to give you the codes for free after a year, to unlock your phone. This is an European law as far as I know. Worth to try, since this is an old phone and 5 Euro is a lot then….
      Good luck and let me know the results

  1. The phone was someone else’s throwaway. I was just not sure what this custom flash changed especially as I was given a code to unlock it which did not work. I am not sure why the guy gave me just one code and I did not know it needed two. The phone was obviously Vodafone as it is a Vodafone 875. The boy has just bought a Vodafone SIM now which worked fine so not going to bother with making it free. I was reluctant to spend any money on the phone because when the phone broke I bought him a brand new phone then within one week he smashed the screen and within one month he lost it altogether. Thank you for your help.

    • It was my pleasure to help! I know that feeling 😉 My daughter once wanted to see, if a laptop LCD would break if she bend it… She didn’t have a laptop for a while. What you can try, is the Vodafone shop. Maybe they are willing to unlock it for free. Worth to try! Anyway good luck with it. I still use the phone. Maybe not fast, but far stronger then Iphone or Samsung!!!!
