Anyone price match vodafone?

Options
Would any of the other phone companies lower their new customer deals to get closer to what vodafone are offering?

    Well im leaving vodafone for Life who are cheaper..

    Depends what deal you want.

    Im going SIM only and £6 for 1500 min, unl txt and 1GB data. 1 month contract only. So i can move on quickly if i want to.

    Extra £4 you can get unl min, unl txt and 3Gb data with Life. Same 1 month contract. Voda offered to match that but with a 12month contract.

    OP *if* you do go ahead and join Life Mobile make sure you have a decent EE signal where you live/work as that's the network they "piggy back" on.

    He's probably talking about the current special offer on Vodafone of £20 for unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 20GB of tetherable data, and a choice of 12 months subscription to either Netflix, Spotify Premium, NowTV or SkySports Mobile.

    No one else is offering a comparable deal.

    That's a good deal for 12 months but those taking it need to watch they don't roll onto the £40 per month at the end of the min term.

    It seems the way the contact is setup it's 12 month at half price then it continues to roll at £40 per month ! I suspect Voda is hoping people forget about the increase.

    Standard for most, if not all, contracts of this type across all providers. Mobile/TV/Broadband etc.

    Not sure about that. With my Three sim only contract the discounted price continued after the minimum term.

    Having looked at the Voda online store it isn't clear that the price goes up to £40 after the 12 month minimum term. Accodring to those that purchased this deal this is stated on the contract documentation but wasn't clear when the pucrhase was made.

    EDIT - Just had a live chat with Vodafone about this plan and the agent states states that the price will not increase to £40 after the minimum 12 month term is reached and will continue to roll. Maybe some confusion over the purchase confirmation email wording that made some thik it goes up !

    So get your PAC, port out and then port back to the new connection. Plenty of info on how to do it on the forum.
