Thanks
Top up is required if you are using a Vodafone sim and want to stay on whatever pay as you go offer they have you on (an offer is something like topup by 20 and you get unlimited calls texts and data but they take the 20 from your credit). If you are not on a offer and are just a Vodafone PAYG customer then no topup required for 6 months (they will block you making calls after 6 months of not topping up). If phone is unlocked, then you can put a sim from another network in the phone and no longer topup with Vodafone.

Ok, so they won't send the boys round to look for the 20 euros?
Great!!

One more potentially stoopid question.. are Huawei out of the woods yet or are the yanks still scared of them? ie: would the P30 lite still be getting android updates and new whatsapp versions a year from now?

Was planning to go for the P30 lite, but worried that some things might not be available in the future,Play Store being one of them. Wondering if the problems around Huawei are bringing down price of their phones. Anyone agree?

Think i'll go for the A40 instead,

I was also very tempted to go with the Huawei but now it's all out of stock. Do you reckon Google will pull support from Huawei in the future?

You'll be grand, it was all Google flexing their muscles after a bit of pressure from Trump to squeeze the chinese.
