    Oh goody. So, in effect, those of us who don't "roam" will be subsidising those who do.

    The phone companies were never going to lose out on this were they.

    The ASA will have something to say if the word 'free' is being used to describe this.

    The calls may be 'inclusive' but they are certainly not 'free'.

    Judging by the protracted Vodafone complaints thread on here I am surprised this affects anyone on here as they would be with a different provider.

    this is disappointing news. i had gone with vodafone for two reasons. their signal service was excellent and they had their fixed price promise.

    I had been with O2 since 1998 and ditched them due to their rpi price increases and their signal in my home and work locations kept getting worse.

    then i went with three. initially they where very good. but then the same thing happened. their signal dropped and they introduced the rpi price rises just after i have changed contracts.

    now vodafone have jumped on the rpi bandwagon. how long before their signal goes rubbish? :-(

    'Fixed Price Promise', I guess most are increasing with RPI, can't really blame Vodafone. Just means you will have to endure it if you go for a 2 year deal. At least with a 1 year deal you can move on.
