Interesting scenario re: vodafone

Long post (sorry).

Tonight I managed to change my sim only plan from a 6gb to 15gb (actually a reduction of 2 quid, result).

Got a confirmation that my plan would change at my next refresh, all good so far.

Then something funny happened. I looked on my status line and it seemed I was roaming. So I went into my mobile network settings and it's changed to ee. So I re-registered on virgin.

Guess what, I'm now on Vodafone. I haven't got a 5g phone yet, but for me the 4g and 3g signal is much better than before. I'm gonna see if I have volte next.

For information my country/operator code is 234 15 at the moment.

Re: Interesting scenario re: vodafone

Yep, ordering a new plan did the trick for me. On the main account pages I only had the choice of unlimited and the plan I was on, but on the 5g pages all plans were shown and I had the option of upgrading my existing account on the checkout page.

Got a full signal on voda inside the house, so should be better for my battery. It seems to prefer 3g 900mhz at the moment, though it will switch to 4g as well.

Re: Interesting scenario re: vodafone

I too have found I've been switched to Vodafone (not a new contract, I was alerted by the reduction of signal by 50% and sometimes dropping out completely)

This change of network is the last thing I want as I travel extensively in the UK and have found that Vodafone has poor coverage in many areas.

I was not advised of this change so I understand that I have grounds to terminate my contract early, can a VM team member take care of that?

Re: Interesting scenario re: vodafone

@KSenos 

Just to let you know the team on here can't handle terminations.

You would have also been better posting a new thread if you wanted it picking up
