The easiest way is to call Vodafone.

Tell them you have a 3gs that was on a vodafone contract and you'd like it unlocking.

With Vodafone it often depends on which way the wind is blowing as to whether they'll charge you or not.

Once the unlock has been processed you just put the new sim card in and connect it to iTunes.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

Last month I had to unlock a 3g from O2 so it could use a Vodafone sim card. All I had to do was fill out a form on O2's website and then it took about two days. I'm sure Vodafone has a similare set up.
