Default [Q] Sim unlock site recommendations?

Folks

I have an S4 on EE (UK). Completely stock - not rooted either. Latest ORA updates. I got it in Feb 2014 I need to use it for a couple of months with a Vodafone SIM.

Are any of the SIM unlock web sites reliable and do they work? Can anyone recommend one for me please

Many thanks

Yes. But it doesn't get past step 4. I don't get a menu with UMTS on it - or any menu in fact

Question on the service method unlock. Should the S4 have the original EE sim in it, no sim or the new SIM in it when I try that method?
