just a heads up for anyone that is currently on vodafone bill pay and want to switch out and back to avail of the data user plan, switch to postmobile online and it only takes a minute to fill out the form and the sim is free and first month is also free for switching and the added bonus of keeping your number

I rang a few weeks ago and got a NI agent straight away. Asked for data user plan and was no problems really.
Once ported I used webchat to ask for some free minutes data and texts to tide me over.
From the first call to the plan being activated was 9/10 days for me.
Got the 100 minutes for €5. Don't know what to spend the rest on.

For light users the best thing to do is skip a month of topping up and buy a data bundle and if you need it a text bundle
I plan to skip every third month and use this method and that will mean the plan will cost €160 for the year roughly

Plus the added benefit that Post Mobile SIMs work in devices locked to Vodafone.

So I got my additional credit and when I checked the Vodafone app my offer shows up as the student offer with free texts and 15 gb of data and for €20 a month. Has this happened to anyone else before and I am best off going to customer care through the app or ringing customer care on this?

The Data User Plan is the Student Offer. You're set up correctly.

But the student offer I have been given is different. It is not free calls the one I have been is for free texts to any network and is for €20 and not €15 so I think they have put me on the wrong plan.

The offer is 15GB and texts for 20euro top up, keep the top up.

If you still have 20 credit balance then you are on the Data User Plan.

The calls are optional via an add on which is 15 for unlimited or 5 for 100 minutes.

This deal isn’t rocket science lads
Top up with €20 and Vodafone give you 15gb of data and unlimited texts to any network
They don’t take the money so you can spend it on whatever you fancy wether it’s call bundles or apps or games
Another option is skip a month topping up and buy a data bundle and any other bundles you want with the spare credit that accumulates

I've just changed to this plan today. I've got free min/text and 3gb data untill the plan activates.

I'm not able to tether. Is tethering possible on this plan?

It's more a phone issue. Any phone running Oreo or newer has the data settings locked down and will try and use a chargeable APn to connect to the internet. If you have no credit it won't work.
