Apple will not intitiate an unlock at all.
ONLY the carrier to which it is locked can unlock it.
Locking/unlocking is 100% the decision of the carrier, not Apple at all.

Apple does not unlock iPhones. Only the carrier to whom the phone is locked can authorize unlocking, so if Vodaphone cannot or will not help you, there's no way to get your iPhone officially unlocked. You'll probably have to take the iPhone back from the purchaser and then try to sell the iPhone again, this time advertising it as being for Vodaphone.

If my company wont help me (what's wrong with these people) I will say that I used another vodafone sim card of somebody else (my dad) and put the request via his customer service.
Thank you for the speedy response by the way.

Lying and cheating - your father would be proud of you. If Vodaphone won't unlock your iPhone, why would Vodaphone unlock your father's iPhone? Regardless, unlocking is not based on the SIM card.

It's a white lie because I've exhausted all routes. If Vodafone will only speak to my company and my company won't speak to Vodafone what else can I do? It doesn't change the essence of what happened. Who am I cheating?
I'm not trying to unlock my father's phone? The SIM card that locked the replacement iphone that i sold was a Vodafone SIM card so the SIM card that I say locked it must also be a Vodafone SIM card.
