Vodafone Mifi £24.50 on 1 month contract (£15)

First time posting a deal so go easy, Vodafone R201 Mifi on a 1 month contract. Mifi one off cost of £24.50 and £15 a month on a 30 day contract. The data allowance is a little on the low side at 2GB compared with Three but if Vodafone is what you need this is the cheapest I have ever seen the Mifi modem.

I get 15Gb for £15 a month with Three and there mobile broadband is far better than Vodafones which is very slow.

With a bigger data allowance i can see the point but with this sort of allowance you may as well just share out the Data connection on your smartphone which can be done with free software on most smartphones.

I agree Three offers a much better deal as they will give you 5GB on a 1 month contract or 15GB on a 24 month contract but if you only need it for a month or only need the Vodafone mifi then this is the cheapest deal, these mifi modems go for between £60 - £80 on ebay so £39.50 all in isn't bad.

I think the point here is that you get a portable, battery powered, unlockable, mini wifi router for £39.50 by taking out a 1 month contract with a months data.

This model , the Huawei R201, is going for around £65-£80 on fleabay. So, it's actually a hot dea!

For example, Three will sell you a Huawei E585 (pretty much the same, just black and blobby vs white and angular), for £39.99 plus £15.99 for your first month on a contract. So thats £55.98 vs £39.50 to get your hands on a mobile 3G wifi router.

Awaken thanks for clearing things up, I only posted this because I have been stuck for the last 2 weeks trying to work out my cheapest option on how to get a mobile wifi router so thought it may help someone else in the same boat.

If you bought this purely to use on another network you would have to factor in the cost of unlocking the device unless it can be done for free or comes unlocked. I didn't think there was a way to unlock this device yet other than through the operator, could be wrong though?

Vodafone will also unlock these free of charge (while in contract). Great deal, purchased.

Shame others don't feel the same :)

Hi tickedon, can you confirm that voda will unlock these free of charge even if you're on a rolling contract? This is the only reason I'm sat on the fence. Cheers!

Just went through Quidco and it's showing as £25 being tracked already. If that comes off v hot.

Forget all this £15 for 2GB, or even £15 for 15GB nonsense...

For big downloaders, put a vodafone payg phone sim card (not mobile internet sim) in a dongle or mifi and enjoy 35GBs of data for £1/day. On ebay you can find great deals on vodafone sims with credit included making this even better value, e.g 50p/day.

Can you explain above, little unclear, and also link to card please.

Question: Is it as easy as cancelling your direct debit when cancelling a rolling contract?

You'd need to contact vodafone and let them know. You can't simply cancel the direct debit, if you do, they'll simply tack on fees and chase you for the debt!

Vodafone charge customers £1 per day for internet on their phone. This is supposed to be capped, but I've found over the past year, it isn't. So with a good 3G connection you can get speeds of 400 kB/s, which will allow you to download a massive 35GB per day (for £1). This is amazing value for people who download a lot, as some providers charge up to £10 for 1GB.

To take advantage of this you must get hold of a vodafone payg sim card (for phone, not mobile internet). On ebay you can find one with £10 credit for £5. This will work out even cheaper at 50p per day for internet. Simply pop the sim in your (unlocked) dongle and off you go.

Thanks for confirming Geoff, that's great news! Just on the phone to Vodafone at the minute though because for some reason they've set my billing amount to £20 a month rather than £15, numpties!...

I would recommend anyone who bought this to check the amount they are set to be billed on a monthly basis.

Yes! I had exactly the same issue.
Now, after 30 mins on the phone, being cut off by them a couple of times and being put through to the wrong department i've had my account amended to show the correct £15 p/m as advertised on their website. He said their system showed different tarrifs to the website!!

if at all useful the number I used to contact them was 020 7022 2393 - avoids using their 08700 number.

Yup, I got passed to 5 different departments, cut off once until I managed to get my bill sorted, ruddy Voda!

slackgeoff, are you planning on cancelling your contract if so how long are you going to leave it until you phone Vodafone?
