I recently downloaded the update for My Videophone on my iPhone 4. It worked for a few weeks and then it suddenly was unable to find my account details. Now all I get is the message “We’re having a bit of trouble” with a speech bubble saying “Sorry, were experiencing a few technical difficulties at the me moment so we can’t display your usage or account information. We’ll get this sorted as soon as possible – please try later”. After a few weeks I was still getting the same problem so I called customer services. They deleted my account for me twice in each case saying I had to re-register online. I also deleted the app and reloaded it several times. Its still not working and is still displaying the same message. Anyone got any ideas?
Ps I have wifi off as it requires connection to 3g to get account details.

Hi, I am experiencing the exact same problems with my vodafone app on my iphone 4s.
Everytime I attempt to log into the app it says 'We're having a bit of trouble - sorry we're experiencing a few technica difficulties at the moment so we can't display your usage or account information. We'll get this sorted as soon as possible - please try again later.' How can I resolve this issue?

Hi, I am also having the same issue on my iPhone 4. In my case my phone number was ported from Orange. I read elsewhere that a chnage of phone number could be a cause of the problem. If so how can this be fixed?

Thanks for your post here and for bringing your issue to our attention.
I must admit that this is a bit of a strange one especially as this has been ongoing since August.
The first thing that we need to do is remove the app, restart the phone and then reinstall it making sure that you disable your WIFI once it is downloaded before you open the app.
Also, do you have a good 3G signal?
Are you able to use the internet without being connected to WIFI?

Hi James, thanks for your reply. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you but I only just saw your response.
The app worked for 1 day when I first got the phone in August but then when my old mobile number ported over I haven't been able to get it to work since. I keep getting an error message saying "we're having a bit of trouble"

Thanks for your post.
It's likely that the port has caused this and we'll need access to your account to be able to resolve this.

I am experiencing a similar problem but get the message 'We're having a bit of trouble - Try again'. It has never worked on my phone (iphone 5) since I got it on 17 Oct but it works fine on my wifes. I have tried disabling Wifi, removing/reinstalling app, resetting WAP settings but with no success. Customer Services said there is nothing they can do with the app and that it should just work. Can you offer any help? Thanks.

Thanks for coming back to us. Can you confirm that everything is working with your My Account online please? This is where the Vodafone App retrieves all of it's information and so if anything isn't working there then the App will be unable to retrieve your information.
You will also need to have received the 1st invoice since you took out the contract for the App to update.

Hi Phil, thanks for your reply. My account online works fine and I received my first bill last week. I think the problem is that both my phone number and my wife's are on the same account. Her number works fine from her phone and pulls back the details for her number but mine just comes up with an error. Thanks.

I posted in regard to the same problem yesterday and its disappeared!
My Vodafone App doesnt.work on my iPhone 5 since upgrading from the iPhone 4, yes I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling, with Wifi off, and have been through at least one bill cycle since the upgrade. Still get the error about trouble finding my details. Please can you advise what i need to do !

Do you have any other apps running at the time you have these issues, for example Onavo? If so, can you try shutting these down or removing them to see if this makes a difference?
mbrown8 - your prevous post can be found here, and I see that Ben_H has replied yesterday.
