    why don't you ring the number or get off your backside and go to vodafone.co.uk/goi…oad and see what the new charges are compared to your old ones.

    I just got a new contract so there is no differnece for me and I can't see the old charges anywhere.

    I'm sure anyone with a contract they want to get out with will have enough initiative to see if they qualify. like i said my contract started a month ago so I do not have access to the old call charges etc so can't help on that front.

    ACTUALLY - YES IT IS CORRECT INFO!!! ask vodafone yourself! the changes to the call charges must make at least a 10% difference to your monthly bill (so you must be using your contract to make calls to or from a foreign country) for them to be able to cancel your contract. if there was no rules then everyone would just sign up for the phone and cancel as soon as they change anything :whistling:

    no that's not correct. it is an unfair contract term. if you sign up now for a 24 month or 36 month contract planning to go abroad in 6 months time, how can vodafone say that this will not affect you??? i know what you are saying and this is what these mobile phone co's say on the phones when people want to cancel to fob them off. problem is some people fall for it and don't push them on it which means they get away with it and it emboldens them further. stick up for yourself man. if they change the terms of the contract you signed, you are no longer bound by the new contract unless you agree to it. O2 tried it on with me when they got rid of 0845/0844/0870 calls from inclusive minutes telling me I don't use that many 0845 so don't qualify for cancellation. I sent them packing and they cancelled my contract 6 months early.

    dont call me a dummy....prat. i have contacted vodafone and so did others when this thread was started the first time around as was told the same as stated above - this must have affected you by at least 10% to be able to cancel. as i (and no doubt many more) have not made any international or european call since the start of my contract i think its taking the p*ss a bit expecting them to cancel everyones contract just because they "might" go abroad sometime during their contract. please use your brains...if you have any :roll:

    zaheer you are an angry person
