You’ll find that when you contact Vodafone, there are extra services that are offered to you, or extra services that you can ask for to improve your mobile experience with them.
As an example, you might not just contact Vodafone to check your bill, but also if you’re looking to upgrade. It’s often far easier to talk to a customer service representative about upgrading to a new model or changing your tariff.
You don’t just have to call about mobiles either. They offer a lot of different products related to consumer tech, including WiFi packages and dongles, the latest smart tablets, and accessories for all the common handsets.
If you’re looking for the best tech or the newest handset around, then calling Vodafone customer care number is the best way to start. Maybe you’re looking for an edgeless Galaxy S8, the newest Apple Watch, or even a new iPhone, or maybe you’ve been calling too much and want to add more minutes to your phone plan. Whatever the reason, use the Vodafone number to contact them quickly.

They have all the standard products that you’d expect from a leading telecoms provider, with plans to suit all budgets and needs. At the high end you have pay-monthly contracts with unlimited data, messages, calls, and state-of-the-art handsets. Or if you prefer Pay As You Go, you can sign up and receive a SIM or a handset that you top up as and when you need it.
They have offers a huge 70+ different plants that can all be tailored and adjusted to meet with your needs. So no matter what you’re looking for it’ll be possible to work out a plan that’s comfortable and convenient for you. The starting point for all this possibility is the website, where you can find all the information that you need and begin your decision making process.
After you’ve decided what service or product you’re after, you can contact the customer services line, which we’ve put up a connection line to below. If you’re not sure what to go for, give them a call, get some information and get going on your next smartphone adventure.

Answers to Common Vodafone Support Questions

I want to use my Vodafone device with another network – how can I unlock it?
To unlock your device, you may likely have to request a Network Unlock Code, or NUC. You should be able to request a NUC code from Vodafone online or over the phone. It may take a number of days to receive your unlocking code – the time span varies depending on what type of Vodafone contract you have. When you receive your NUC code, you should also receive an email from Vodafone explaining exactly how to unlock your device. After following all of these steps, your Vodafone should be unlocked and available to use on other mobile networks.
For those who purchased a Vodafone device from a third party and therefore are not a Vodafone customer, you may not be able to request a NUC code immediately. Before requesting to unlock your phone as a non-Vodafone customer, you need to prove that it belongs to you. Vodafone recommends doing this by ordering a Pay As You Go Vodafone SIM card. It is free to order the sim card and using it for 30+ days should prove that you are the device’s owner. After using the device as a Vodafone Pay As You Go customer for this amount of time, you may then be able to request a NUC code to unlock your phone.
What is the easiest way to activate my new Vodafone SIM card?
If you are a Pay Monthly customer, your sim card should be activated automatically, but it may take some time to start working. If you are having problems using your new sim card for a longer amount of time than expected, get in touch with Vodafone to report the issue.
If you are a Pay As You Go customer, you may need to top up your phone and make a chargeable call to activate your sim. However, if you ordered a free Pay As You Go sim from the Vodafone website, they may need to activate the sim for you instead. If you ordered your sim online, try contacting Vodafone and asking them to activate your sim.
How can I add credit to my Vodafone device?
Call the Vodafone contact number for several options to top up your devices. You may be able to top up your phone at a store with Vodafone top up services or by buying a TopUp voucher. Vodafone customers can also top up their phone by sending a text to the relevant number or by making a call to Vodafone. If you would prefer, you can add credit to your device by logging on to your online account or signing in to the My Vodafone app. There are also low maintenance options such as organising automatic top ups in advance.
I’m not sure what my device’s balance is – how can I find out?
The most popular ways to check your balance as a Vodafone customer are via the My Vodafone app and your My Vodafone online accounts. Some Vodafone UK customers can also check their remaining balance or allowance on-screen by texting or dialling a number.
The current phone numbers to find out your balance can be found on their website. If you don’t have an online Vodafone account and can’t find a contact number to receive an on-screen update, you may be able to find out your balance by calling the Vodafone customer service number.
Why can’t I send picture messages or use the internet?
If you cannot send picture messages or access the internet on your device, you might need to update your settings. You may be able to change the settings yourself by sending a text to the relevant Vodafone number, which should be available on the website. It could also be possible to fix the problem by manually changing the settings on your phone. More information on how to change your settings is available on the website or by calling the Vodafone UK customer service team directly.
My device is lost or has been stolen – should I contact the Vodafone helpline?
Call Vodafone as soon as you can to let them know your device has been stolen or lost. They also recommend reporting the incident to the local police station if the device was stolen, as you may need to do so for insurance purposes.
