Using a 3rd party router

I need to use a bt hub6 on a vodafone network because it
penetrates further in my stone build house. I have the necessary

name and password from vodafone but on various forums they say
the hub6 needs to flashed/unlocked before I can even begin the arduous
task of connecting to the network.
Any help would be appreciated.
