    Honestly live chats a joke - been on hold 10 minutes and get through - advisor says they will just be a minute checking my details - 45 minutes later still on hold!

    Annoying as evenings main opportunity to speak to them, especially a Sunday evening.

    Anyone got a telephone number that's a free call to retentions?

    Got fed up of waiting for Live Chat so rang retentions, was offered 2gb data first for £10.80 - no thanks!

    Then got the 8gb red plan the £27 one offered - with 40% discount - I really don't think the 50%'offers still exist.

    Now this one included Spotify premium for 12 months - I have just finished a 3 month trail of this and cancelled as hoped I could get it included as I do like Spotify.

    So unlimited texts and minutes plus 8gb 4g data, 2gb roaming data and 12 months Spotify is £16.20.

    I can't be bothered to keep pushing for further deals as did so well last year and I will find Spotify handy, so happy with that for a year.

    Seen some good offers on Three but signals bad at home and I've never had problems with Vodafone.

    Vodafone upgrade
    I just got a black iphone 7 128gb on Vodafone upgrade 72 days before my 24 months is up for £43.50 per month including free spotify for £9.99 per month for 24 months (which I already pay for so this takes it down to £33.51 per month. Includes unlimited calls and texts, 10GB data, 2GB roaming data (abroad) and unlimited roaming texts and calls. £30 upfront fee and £4.95 delivery but 1st month free to cover that. And I did it all on online chat. It took around an hour and a half but I just kept saying I would wait to cancel as EE were offering a better deal and eventually I was connected to retentions and they offered me this.

    By my reckoning this means i will actually be paying less than retail price for the phone as in total i'll be paying less than £770 over 24 months (possibly even
    less as i'll be eligible to upgrade after 22 months) and if i was paying £10 for the same bundle on a sim only deal (it's likely to be more than that for that deal) that makes the phone cost £530 and rrp is £699.

    It makes a big change for Vodafone to be so helpful. I'm impressed.
