    Vodafone says the change means customers will "always know exactly how many minutes you have left".

    As opposed to knowing how many seconds you had left?

    This is still far too complex - round it to the nearest hour so that it's much easier...

    Maybe today but some things got to go up to cover the potential profit loss due to EU roaming costs.

    All providers have to implement the cuts to EU roaming costs so I'd expect all networks will start these type of moves to retain their profit margin for shareholders.

    8 million of them.
  • I'll be completely honest, the only reason I'm still with them after years of incompetence from them is my own laziness :/
    Going to have to make a change asap!

    This explains why we have been unable to top up our phones with the Freedom Freebies package ( we have 3 phones on Vodafone) none have been able to top up with a freedom freebie either online or be phoning their number, 'service temporarily unavailable' this has been going on for about 3 weeks now. Time to look for a new provider.
