Vodafone Spain begins selling unlocked smartphones

Tuesday 24 June 2014 | 10:49 CET | News
Vodafone Spain has announced that it will begin to sell unlocked smartphones starting next week with the new high-end LG G3 handset. The operator said that the initiative will be applied to all new smartphones and has even clarified that, starting next month, customers with older phones can unlock them free of charge through the Mi Vodafone application or online. Vodafone's decision follows similar moves by Movistar and Orange Spain, who already sell their handsets SIM-free for use with any mobile operator network.
