Sony xperia z1

Son in law has given my daughter an xperia z1 which was on contract with vodaphone, but daughter has sim only with o2. Local phone shop quoted £45 to make phone sim free. Have googled but dont understand it. Is there an easy way to do this? If not is £45 about right? Any help appreciated.

    £45 is hideous, can't you get the code for like £10 can't remember what the code is called but sure most mobile providers can or have to provide it

    So £45 is mad yes, and she or son in law phone vodaphone for code. Didnt say but SIL has bought new smart phone and his contract was up on vodaphone so was going sim only.

    Should only need a code from Vodafone but any phone shop should be able to unlock it for 10-15 quid. Whoever told you £45 needs a slap

    Get your son in law to fill out this form 
    https://www.vodafone.co.uk/vodafone-uk/forms/unlock-code-request/index.htm
    If out of contract unlocking will be free
