Did you receive any credit on your phone as soon as you put in the SIM or can you make calls?


I had 50 cent credit on it when I got it last Friday. I received a complimentary aloowance of 100 minutes and texts and also 1 GB of data.

I can't check the app or online if my plan is active because it still brings up my old VF bill pay details.

So Im waiting for a text to come threw at some stage.

I can only see the Spotify add on for €5.99. Thought it was €5?

The first post probably needs to be updated.

Data User Plan 28 days
Top up by 20 euro to get 15 GB data and texts
Keep the 20 euro credit to use as you like

That's the plan

IF you need to top up within the 28 days for any reason, then top up by 5, 10 or 15 but NOT by 20 (or more) because 20 top up will clear remaining data balance to zero and restart a new 28 days.

There are various OPTIONAL add ons that can be purchased from credit
Add ons listed on this link
https://n.vodafone.ie/shop/pay-as-you-go-plans/add-ons.html

Tethering
In theory you can tether without extra charges via Live APN
BUT BUT BUT
Certain phones (iPhone, Xiaomi, Android Oreo for example) allow Vodafone to reroute tethered data via another APN that charges 19c per MB

Tread carefully with tethering and check that you can edit/delete APNs to leave the LIVE APN only. If the APNs are greyed out or reappear after being deleted then it's probable that your credit will be used for tethering. Check with a small amount of tethered data and then check your credit balance to see if it has reduced or not.

I received my sim today after ordering yesterday. I received the following message from Vodafone today:

To facilitate your move to Vodafone you will only be able to receive calls and text messages for a short period. Please check your voicemail now. Thank you.

I haven't put my Vodafone sim into my phone yet or have received any voicemail as I don't have it set up. So I'm wondering do I just wait until my number had ported to Vodafone?

You're ported long enough now that it should be active. I would recommend you call the sales line tomorrow and go to the same place as you ordered from (Option 2??) and say that you ordered through them and that it still hasn't been activated and ask them to make sure its raised with the relevant team just in case they missed the fact your line has ported in last Friday. They might tell you you need to talk to customer care but I would try push forward with them instead first.

I don't suggest everyone does this at all, at this stage his offer should have be activated and would only recommend he contact them now as a last resort.

After porting yesterday I have service on my phone now and My Vodafone account set up. Called Customer care and got 2gb data 200 messages and 200 minutes to tie me over until offer becomes active. When offer becomes active will it show up in the app or will they notify you by text? Or just a matter of checking the app in a few days to see if it shows up? I presume it will appear under "my top up offer".

You will get a text to say your account has been topped up by €20.

Oh I would have thought you would need to top up by €20 to activate the offer once it has been assigned to your account. I thought the free month offer was finished.

Free month offer is still on, can confirm I got last week.
Sales told me to top-up as soon as sim is active but I waited the offer to be shown and got free 20€ top-up.

For existing Vodafone customers who want to avail of this offer and need to port out then back in, Which operator is best? I read that you need to top up by €5 with eir for them to let you port back out. Is 3 the same? What about the MVNOs 48months, lycra etc?

Not planning on staying with whoever I port out to - I just need to port away from vodafone and back as quickly as I can to get the offer.

Thanks in advance!
