I ordered the a20e the other day with spare Tesco sim I had lying around. Phone arrived today . I was impressed that it was dual sim and had slot of SD card on top of that . It was locked to Vodafone but bought unlocking code from unlock.ie for 18 euro. if anyone does decide to buy their unlocking code you just need to put in the phones first imei when requesting it. The code they send back unlocks both sim slots . All in all unlocked dual sim phone for 67.99 euro is fantastic value . Cheers OP

I ordered a Huawei P30 Lite earlier - only after purchase did I realise it was the black version so I went back and purchased the blue version. Even though I selected blue before I added it to the cart.

Does anyone know how to contact Vodafone so I can cancel the first order - I've searched for support or contact but can't seem to get anywhere... perhaps my only chance is for the order to be cancelled!!

Yep, I bought a phone online last year on a Vodafone porting offer and for some reason the burner SIM I used never ported.

On another occasion though, buying a phone in a Vodafone store, the agent wouldn't hand it over until my number ported successfully. Had to go away and come back 30 minutes later!

Maybe a silly question,
but on the Vodafone site for the "Select switch date and time", does it have to be within a certain time? Could I set it to 4 weeks time for example?

Ok, thanks. I tried to buy online twice yesterday and on both occasions it gave me a message of...

~Unable to process your request at the moment. Please try again later.

On the second occasion it even went through the "Verified by Visa" process!!

No email, no text, no acknowledgement of any sort but two amounts for €49.99 pending in my visa account!!

I ordered one yesterday evening. I could successfully complete the order. I got an order number at the end of the ordering process and subsequently an email with all the order details too.
