No problem it should have worked now if I'm correct?
shame didn't have it a year ago. would have stopped my "son" racking up over £750 in data charges. muggings here paid it and he then does it again.

If it was my son I don't think he'd have done it again.

That's more or less what I said but a bit more tactfully

It definitely works, I've just turned mine off and on again to double check
Thanks I'll try again (not my phone)
I've found the reason, only works on contracts started after may 2016,according to Vodafone website.
Here's some info from Vodafone's website:

Data capping on Red+ comes into effect when all of your group’s data allowance has been used. It will stop any further usage for the remainder of your billing month.

The data cap is removed when your next month’s allowance starts, and then you can share data again.

Alternatively, if you want to continue sharing data after your allowance has been used, you can buy extra data to top up your monthly allowance. Simply text BUY DATA followed by 1GB or 2GB to 40506.

1GB will cost £6 a month, and 2GB costs £10 a month.
