    No. 99.99 in total for the phone delivered.
    Sound. Just ordered off an old 3 sim.

    So they are giving a phone unlocked, at a great price with no commitment allowing you to pop your own sim in and off you go?

    Doesn't sound very VF to me...

    Two years ago they were giving decent phones for €39.99.

    If Redmi note 10 is around the corner, there is no point for them to sit on the stock. Better give it at cost in hope some users will stay with their plan.

    Remote sales regulations, you can return it for full refund.

    Hi. How are you getting it for €99?
    Shows as €129 for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 373 ✭✭ Dec4


    VF sale is over in a 2 days, any way I can get a free sim from another network to get the €100 discount before the offer is over?

    Worked perfect with a 48 sim that I ordered as a throwaway.

    Thanks

    Can only select current Vodafone customer, no option to switch/port to them.
    The offer countdown is still running, maybe they have sold out ?

    WTF - Just checked order status and they cancelled it - no reason given.

    What were you migrating?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,239 ✭✭✭ morgana


    Lycamobile - so I suppose they let those orders go through initially and then cancel? But not even a mail, you need to go into the VF account and check the order status.
    Ah well, too good to be true


  • Registered Users Posts: 850 ✭✭✭ A Law


    Cancelled as well. Coming from a new 48 SIM

    Anecdotal investigation - but were they throw-away sims?

    Yep. Had it a few months but never bought a membership with it.

    I got a 48 sim for the purpose of grabbing a deal like this one. I activated it on Saturday, received number, used that number to order the €100 deal from Vf as soon as it was activated. I got a dispatch notice yesterday with tracking number. I can't track it yet though as its not on the Ap system yet.

    Fingers crossed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,617 ✭✭✭ grogi


    I confirm that it's unlocked and dual sim.

    Once you get dispatch notice, it's going to show up.

    Got mine from VF today. Delighted so far. Just had a notification pop up of "Vodafone appbox initialising" - so far the only thing Ive found with any mention of Vodafone. I didnt put in the sim card that came with it. Anybody notice this when you got yours?


  • Registered Users Posts: 850 ✭✭✭ A Law


    Customer care blamed a lack of stock on the cancellation even though it's in stock now. She wouldn't place the order for me again though. Said to contact my local shop. Might try them tomorrow.

    This has been a recurrent issue with online orders for years and, yes, it is related to how their system (mis)handles stock flows. All you can do is keep ordering and hope that you'll eventually be successful. When I tried buying this phone on the Vodafone website before Christmas, it was third time lucky for me.

    Be aware that if you buy in a Vodafone store, they'll make you pay an extra €20 for credit and even insist on applying the credit to your new account before handing you the phone. If you buy in Carphone Warehouse, they'll charge the €20 but at least give you the top-up voucher so you can use it on another account or flog it.

    Arrived with the postman this morning. Ordered Sunday night.
    Currently I am on a One Plus Nord and wanted this as a backup.

    Great piece of kit, almost as good as the OPN but at a fifth of the price.
    Can confirm unlocked and with NFC. Camera very good
    A skin case also included, Very handy that you don't have to buy credit upfront.

    Happy out.
