Hello Popflorin,
You can not unlock the bootloader on some simlocked phones due to that some carriers don't want you to mess with the system files due to warranty or something like that.

I would suggest you to contact your carrier (Vodafone) and ask them if it's possible to get in unlocked somehow as they're the ones who decided to lock down the bootloader.

I hope my answer helped you and have a great day,
