Although I would perhaps have phrased it different, byron is right. There are dozens and dozens of threads about unlocking.

You are going to have to pay for someone to unlock it. Search for the unlockers on the boards (GSMPhoneSource is one; there are many).

Maybe see if Vodafone would unlock it for you, if you paid full price for it - or the phone/you are out of contract, etc?.
