Dont go tethering with it - doesnt appear to work that great (with the SIM in a Huawei MiFI)
Original Poster
I have been using tethering on my Moto E and it works great.
I wonder then if they detect its a Mifi - will try from a handset.
it's bad enough that they charge you per GB but to say you can only use that within a set period of time is ridculous, OFCOM need to step in there.
Imagine if (insert petrol station name here) took back any unused fuel they sold you if it hadn't been used in 30 days lol
Not bad
Excellent.
I recently upgraded my contract and was told I would get unlimited data to tether for 2 months. Turns out that was false information and you cannot get unlimited tether with mifi. Been trying to cancel and get returns pack for 3 weeks. Customer service is shocking.

Anyone know link to email Vodafone complaints team? Used to be one but I can't find it anymore

Vodafone are the worst company I've ever had to deal with. Absolutely shambolic customer service every time. Avoid them it will save you a lot of grief if anything ever goes wrong.
If you can get a good enough signal to use data!

Tried that for 2 weeks. It's just such a hassle to cancel. No one seems to know what they should do. Could be new expectations on their Cs department but Vodafone is going downhill and with the merger of o2/bt and 3/EE its only going to get worse
Cancel the direct debit and send registered letter cancelling. Safest way as even if they tell you it's cancelled they still take money!

Use resolver.com, they sorted my problem next day
Every mobile deal we get: "worst customer service ever" and "you won't get a signal" - no matter which provider it is.

It's pretty obvious with millions of customers they won't please everyone. For me, I've had endless problems with Three - someone in sales sending a new phone and starting a new contract without asking, wife got a text saying it's coming, when she called they realised someone was boosting their sales and the account had fraud blocks on it. From that day forward we had endless issues until we cancelled the account, which was an adventure. I had great customer service with O2 and was with them in one guise or another for 13 years but moved to the middle of nowhere and O2 have zero service here, so we have had to switch to Vodafone. We get good signal pretty much everywhere, people round here have to use Vodafone or EE if they want a signal, and our data speeds are several times faster than home broadband which struggles to get half a meg on a good day.

I have found Vodafone service to be very good, got several devices with them now and zero issues, I tether my iPad through my phone as that's quicker and more stable than my home internet.

Sure, your experience won't be the same but to state a provider is terrible everywhere for everyone because you didn't get good customer service or have a good signal is a bit strange.
I have jumped between different networks since I owned a phone. Vodafone are no worse than the rest of them. Good data, good deal....
Ordered. Cheers

Yep, they're all rubbish. Then you leave the country, go somewhere like Scandinavia or Ireland where the government took more of a hand in the shape of mobile network coverage and cry that in a place with 10x the population and apparently the healthiest competition in the mobile industry, we can't get close.

Dont use email to complain send a signed for letter to the official complaints dept and make it clear you will take it further if not satisfied, this will work.....
Just about to move house and am going from 78mb fibre to 4mb max with no fibre in the pipeline!

I get strong quick 4g in the new place though, so if I can tether, this would be perfect!

Can anyone confirm that tethering is possible with this sim?

Also, what size is the sim?
Tesco Mobile's customer service is consistently excellent.
Been with Tesco and virgin mobile and I found them both to be great . Vodafone however just trying to get to talk to someone in very difficult.
Chat with CS this offer is for new not activated Sims (to be sure better Sim with BIG Bundle written on case), just buy in any Shop topup and buy bundle
When does this offer expire?

Yes, tethering possible.
Its a multi size sim, use whichever fits your device.

​If the free offer page doesn't load, then you won't get the free bundle.
I've just moved to Vodafone on the 20GB/month Red Value deal that was posted on here. I've yet to see a 4G signal on my phone with it (and I work in central London!) Was with Three before and even got 4G at home, which is in a rural location way outside the M25.

What phone do you have? Is it definitely compatible with their 4G network? Just seems strange that you haven't seen a 4G signal as of yet.

If you read my post, clearly stated the service has deteriorated. I was happy with them till a year ago.

I would just cancel dd like other member suggested but my mobile contract also with them.

Plus the fact they have been billing me wrong for 6 months kind of sums it up.vodafone has made some changes in fear of the upcoming competition from the 2 major mergers and it hasn't worked out.

NEVER EVER EVER EVER cancel the direct debit!!

When you take out a contract, they WILL record a mark on your credit history which will affect your ability to gain credit in the future.

I took out a contract, cancelled within the cooling off period (unused sim-only). Customer service was shocking, they told me that they will be kind and not charge the cancellation fee. I kindly told them, it is against the law to charge a cancellation fee under the Distance Selling Regulations.
Two weeks later, bill for £192 appeared on my door mat. Rang CS, 6 times I was told, "just cancel the direct debit". I told them, if they wish to charge me illegitimately, I will expect £192.06 refund, £50 for going overdrawn and £20 for the hassle it's caused me.

A couple of weeks later, I was charged...even though legally they should not have. Rang up customers services, spoke to a lady in South Africa, India and then finally the UK. They had to send me a cheque for £262.03 in the end as they recognised that I should not have been charged and their own customer services was incorrect in advising me to cancel the direct debit.

​Good point, but it's a UK Nexus 5 (D821), so should fully-support all the UK 4g bands. I've read quite a lot about Vodafone removing masts, so maybe that's it? Also noticed total loss of signal on a few random occasions and generally quite a weak/poor signal compared to what I got on Three and what my girlfriend gets on O2. On the fence at the moment as to whether to stay, or cancel and jump on the BT deal (esp. as we've just ordered Infinity).
