Has Vodafone just got rid of Chat customer service? It's never available.
I moved from Sim Only to PAYG so maybe that's something to do with it.

Ensure that only the live APN is available in settings. Delete the HS APN.

Newer versions of Android (8+) automatically switch APNs in the background so it may take trial and error to see if deleting HS APN stops them charging. Ability to modify/delete APNs may be restricted depending on the phone model.

Try changing to 3G first.
One reason I left Vodafone is that I was always getting charged whenever I tethered. There was no control over the live vs HS APN, and I always ended up being charged i.e. loosing credit. I got tired of contacting Support over it.

Gomo would be better value at 12.99 for 80GB, the only difference is it's a recurring bill.

Eir prepay costs 20 euro for 80GB for 28 days.

Both allow tethering at no extra charge.

Vodafone are the least value for money and those tethering charges are fairly mean and sneaky.

I'm about to do the same, shame as I'm very happy with the service otherwise. Who did you go with?
