Vodafone problems

When there is a Vodafone outage customers are left with no network signal, as well as other services. Even Vodefone’s website goes down now and then, which means you cannot purchase or search for anything. But if you or know anyone else having an issue with Vodafone please use this community page to share what you know.

  • marsha

  • Trevor Holman

    Down again…no info again…sort it out ..please…again

  • Simon Rowlinson

    Had “No Service” on my Vodafone handset with no network for 9 days now (8 Oct 16 to 17 Oct 16). Keep getting fobbed off in store – “it’s OK there is no problem” or “don’t worry it’ll be fine tonight” etc. On Live Chat similar nonsense such as “there is a minor issue with the 4G frequency but your calls will be OK”. When I contact “Customer Service” by telephone all I get is “you have to be reasonable and let us fix it”. All designed to delay and delay Vodafone having to sort it out while they hope I will either get bored or they will restore the network. Had enough. Will have to go elsewhere but in the meantime everyone in my position should email nick.jeffery@vodafone.com as he is the Chief Executive Officer and the buck stops with him. If everyone emails him he cannot ignore dozens of his customers maybe even hundreds. Give it a go we have nothing to lose. Certainly not a mobile telephone network!

    No Vodafone signal starting almost 5 months now, Selby, York etc area. Can’t give up contract without paying a fee. They take my money every month. I use a prepay from other company starting April.

  • Rachel ginger

  • Karen Skelham

    Been getting texts through to phones on my account saying they’re eligible for early upgrades. Apparently it’s a system error although it let my daughter upgrade her phone 6 months early, knew the date of her contract and even sent a confirmation of upgrade email.

  • NICK

    No network no data no nothing. Tiverton devon.

    This is a complete joke vodafone.

  • Pattie

    I have just had terrible trouble with Vodafone as my phone stopped existing and had no service for a whole week. After 10 or 11 phone calls via BT (which I dread to think of the cost of) the phone is now up and running but I have had no more than two bars of signal at any time and mostly only one bar. There customer care is rubbish!!!!! as I asked to speak to a manager on Sunday and was left hanging for twenty minutes before I rang off.

  • Omar

    New Vodafone customer. Sim only taken out October 2015.

    Since November 2015…. 4g works fine. When it switches to 3G the frustration & anger begins.

    Phone just simple freezes whether I was streaming or browsing Net checking email.

    I’ve had sim replaced. I refuse to believe it’s issue with my brand new iPhone 6s.

    I’ve tried the sim in 3 different handsets… Still same damn problem!!!!

    Voda phone customer service useless!!!!!

    We are in Jan 2016.

  • Boblynam

    Been with Vodafone over 16 yrs. now they keep restricting my wife’s and my service saying the bill wasn’t paid, we pay by direct debit so contacted bank who said Vodafone hadn’t taken it. After 2 hrs on phone they said it was their fault so I paid by card and set up a new dd. still kept getting restricted all through November 2015, then exactly the same thing happened in December. We also received an extortionate bill £200 more than usual for no apparent reason. Tried complaining but kept getting cut off by customer service and they never call back. So disgusted we have canceled one contract and will cancel the other Asaph. Read Sunday Mail today it seems this is a common problem. Customer service is non

  • Johns

    Check your agreement terms&conditions failure of network they will offer a refund also you may be entitled to terminate your contract with them (clause 10& 11) whilst they list outage days required prior to giving a refund in today’s tech world their terms could be argued to be unreasonable anyone interested in taking a group action to enable us to terminate our contracts

  • Ace

    So so annoying. Can’t call or anything. Living with no service. Moving soon

  • Kelly Wilson

  • catrina

    I spent about 6 hours yesterday on chatline to various Vodafone advisers, trying to set up Sure Signal, and in spite of being given several different user names and passwords couldn’t get anywhere. Today there is no response from any of their websites. What is going on?

  • Karen Abrams

    Major problems in London with two lines for the past 9 days and not getting anywhere with Vodaphone – they are one of the least impressive organisations I’ve ever come across. If you are thinking of opening a Vodaphone account think again.

  • Amy Johnson

    I am in Cheddar Somerset & was waiting for an important call back, in the end they sent email. So I called them back & they told me my phone was not connecting. I have just called my mobile from a landline & it is saying ” SORRY THE NUMBER YOU DIALED DOES NOT EXIST? ” yet i can call out??? Seriously I can NOT have this as I rely on my phone ( have just entered into a contract with Vodafone) Luckily I have 14 days to cancel, so will be looking else where for a service that can provide a service that’s expected! bloody shocking!

  • Gerry O’Rourke

    I have been unable to operate via 4G since 15/10…the nice folks in the Vodafone shop on Wimbledon tell me there is a network issue that effects certain phones, they advise me to use GSM and “check regularly” such poor service doubt I’ll re sign when my contract comes up for renewal.

  • Amy

    Had signal this morning and come 1pm I have no signal. Turned me phone on and off but still nothing. Just wandering why?

  • BBMumzie

    My daughter has just signed her first contract with Vodafone seven days ago. Tonight network is down in the London area. She works late nights into the early hours of the morning and travels home on public transport. Yesterday , she came close to being mugged on a bus. If today’s problem had occurred yesterday I would be more than fumming. Have advice her to change network. Fear for her safety if this happens again. BBMumzie

  • Julie goldsmith

  • Wayne davies

    I have been spending the last 5 mths trying to sort out a bill and package problem, I have spent 23 hrs in phone time and spoken to 26 advisors, I have been all round the world, this is an absolute disgrace, you would not believe this could happen, customer service is CHAOS.
    Is there a number in Newbury to speak to management?
    I am at the end of my tether, I have been with Vodafone for 12yrs, HELP.

  • Tatty

    I suggest you leave a message for the Ombudsman on line. These are business transactions with Vodaphone, they are accountable and responsible for their network issues!

  • Hot Coco

    I’m having problem with Vodafone delivering the iPhone 6s Plus I preordered. I’ve been calling them since Friday 25th Sept 2015. On one occasion I was on hold for almost 2 hrs. I was so disgusted I took screenshots. I’m thinking of switching network. I’ve had Vodafone for 8-9 years now and every upgrade I face issues with my preorder. Vodafone 4G rarely works in doors.

  • Lawson Vaughan

    I live in Bridgend South Wales and have been having network outage problems for days. According to Vodafone there are no problems

    I have been having problems with no 2G, 3G or 4G signal with my Vodafone Galoaxy Note 3 since Friday 25th Sept 2015.

  • John

    Constant periods today in the junction 25 junction 26 of the M1 area with no ioncoming calls, inability to send text messages and complete signal failure. Normally I have no issues around here at all.

  • Paul

    Hi I,m from Leigh-on-Sea Essex.
    I have been with Vodafone for some years and have had constant problems with my signal in my home, outside and even close to a Vodafone store in Southend High Street. I’m not technically minded and have just persevered from day to day. Customer service have suggested it is my old phone. I respond by asking how come my daughter has the same problems with her new iphone. I have been palmed off with Vodafone are replacing masts and updating masts to improve their signal. That was 5 years ago and I have seen no improvement. I am looking for a new provider who can supply me with a good value smart phone and a good signal. Anyone out there who could point me in the right direction I would be very grateful. But not in Vodafone’s direction.

  • Craig Stevens

    Shefford area out now for two days, managed to travel from Cambridge to Birmingham and only got a signal once at Kettering and that lasted 20 seconds can’t believe it…….

  • Benn

    I am in Brighton and have 4 bars out of 5 on my iPhone 6, but yet i cannot call or text anyone. How is this so?

  • Liam

    Vodafone is not a bad network, I lose signal now and then but nothing to complain about. I am happy with Vodafone.

  • Christine

    I live in the Hartley Whitney area and all I can say is EE is definitely not EVERYWHERE, signal is very poor.

  • Greg

    Got to admit Vodafone have great customer service, but what is the point of that when you have very poor signal and data service. When I do finally manage to get through on a phone call they cannot hear me but i can hear them leaving me saying HELLO HELLO.

  • Morgan

    I am not far from Staithes in Yorkshire and my signal has totally gone. I know for a fact that EE / Orange and Vodafone are the only network that works here. So if my Vodafone doesnt want to work here anymore then i do not have a phone because i will never pick EE.

    Apparently after talking to Vodafone customer service there is no issue in my area, but clearly there is because i have no signal in Southampton.
