Have you contacted them since? Hopefully if a white one pops into stock they might push ahead with the order!! Fingers crossed.

Got the phone today to replace an s8 with a bad battery.

It's not a great phone.

Surprised how bad it is actually.

Switched back to my s8 after an hour.

What makes it bad, in your opinion? After being an owner of a number of Galaxy S models including the 8 , 9 and 10e, I fail to see "how bad it is" compared...

Screen isn't great and the non curved edge is difficult to move away from.

Build quality is questionable.

Wasn't a fan of the UI or version of Android.

Just felt a poor quality phone in the hand.

Currently researching swapping out the battery on my s8. If I can get that up to over a day of usage I'll be happy.

Anyway one for sale for 130 (which will recoup my costs) if anyone wants one.

I went into a Vodafone store and they had the Pixel 3A in stock in black, so got that last night. Then logged into my Vodafone account and tried to cancel the order for the white one in the 'My Orders' window. Checked today and the money has gone back into my account! The staff in the Vodafone store last night said that support should be able to cancel the order easily but after nearly 2hours on both the chat and phone support yesterday no one was able to cancel my order, so I'd recommend trying to do it yourself if possible! It's possible the order will come through eventually but I was sick of dealing with them after yesterday so wanted it done asap.

Thanks

My partner ordered one Thursday. Website seems to have changed a lot in a week! Anyone order one in the last few days?

No more order starting with an "o".

I just ordered one also. The website had changed and didn't show the 50 cashback but the claim link is still valid and the conditions to claim are still purchases up until the end of march, even if Vodafone aren't advertising it.

Yeah I managed to get a white one on Thursday when it showed as "in stock" so fingers crossed. The order status has changed not a few times as well so hopefully it goes smoothly...

Also got no email / order confirmation. So I saved the final order page as PDF just in-case - but that has no date on it.

Black Pixel 3A ordered on Thursday was delivered today. Nice phone, great form factor. I have created the €50 claim request, fingers crossed.

I see Vodafone has changed their site a lot, and now you have to select a plan (minimum €20) with the phone? Decent phone even at €150.

yes but if you choose their 20 euro pay as you go plan then will the SIM be locked to Vodafone and they will probably charge another fee to unlock it ?

Same here, but since last Monday. Going to wait for it to be automatically cancelled, if not, holding out for the order to be fulfilled.

Where are you getting that from? They are sim free.
