I think that is the contract price ,/not the outright PAYG price . A bit like the UK take out a contract get the device cheaper . Outright buy its more expensive.

it uses hardly any wi fi if only use voice calls .
But according to Vodafone the changes will also mean that you get charged if somebody calls you ! Imagine - you get a call from PPI warriors and its gonna cost you

That's one reason I turn off my UK phone because it costs me 1.35 per minute to answer a uk call.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

Thanks for the information all of you. We have a Vodafone, thought it would be good for Turkey but reading all your comments we will be leaving it in the U.K. Very disappointing !

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

I have already emailed my complaint to Vodafone. Yes I'm sure it won't get me anywhere but I won't let it go on principal. Some people I was in contact with yesterday have been allowed to cancel their contract without paying to cancel due to the contract being missold and it was accepted. I hope others follow suit. Sometimes we just have to make a stand.

Both my UK & Turkish phones are Dual SIM phones and with both 'LycaMobile' or 'My Three' receiving texts are free, and voice-mail is deactivated again because Three charge for accessing the voice-mail.

Don't know about My Turkish phone with (at the moment Vodafone and TurkTelekom (Avea).

Truth is, for me it's not really a big issue because 99.99% of the time the WI-Fi is all I need and maybe but not happened yet I never Phone or receive calls from the UK.

But out of spite and principle I will stop using Vodafone as soon as I have used up my 10 worth of credit PLUS the 1 added gift Vodafone gave me yesterday.
One thing that really annoys me is the way my Vodafone credit is being reduced without making any proper calls, so it seems checking anything like a credit balance is chargeable even when done through the downloaded app.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

I don't use my phone in Turkey only on Wi-Fi using messenger which is free,I pay 35TL per month Wi-Fi charges and only when I'm in Turkey ,u don't see the point in paying roaming charges.

Re: Vodafone stop free roaming from 10th May

I just had a response regarding my complaint and they are very apologetic. But that's just what the customer service has to say, and I told him that too. He told me it was high up management that ordered this change. So I asked him to give management some messages from me. They as a good will gesture were going to credit me with 15 and I told him politely what he could do with their 15. Anyway I continued to vent my disappointment and was told I could easily pay 6 per day. I said I would not be doing that just for an odd text. Anyhow you know how customer services just read from scripts and it was all a waste of time albeit they have now credited me with 30. But I will still be leaving them as I'm sim only monthly contract. Incidentally it would appear that others are leaving for the same reasons. Vodafone- Shysters that's what they are.
