Aurora colour is back in stock this morning. Was out of stock when I ordered on the weekend.

The Vodafone website is a mess. It used to function fairly well, but was extremely dated. They have been upgrading for at least the last year, and it's still not all fixed. Up until not that long ago, you would get diverted to their old site when trying to buy a PAYG phone.

If you are ordering for the band (or due to the band). Be aware there is a large chance you will not recieve it.

That is of my own (and others) experience with them is the norm

I'm two weeks waiting for mine after the P30 Pro purchase.

Glad someone got it!

Well the person I did it for tried to stop the port, but didn't manage it in time, so they will use Vodafone for one month before porting back.

You can do the same, or get a throwaway SIM from Eir that you port across, then unlock and use your current Eir SIM. There's a few ways you can do it.

Seems they've removed the free band from the website. Guess they only had limited stock.
