If you're having network problems, please read the information below before posting. This will help us to identify any issues more quickly. A network issue would include loss of signal, poor signal or problems making/receiving calls or texts:
1. Check if the issue only happens in one location
If it only happens in one location, go to number 2. If it happens everywhere you go, go to number 3.
If your coverage is low, or the issue only happens when you're indoors, Sure Signal provides full 3G signal in your home.
Network status will show any unexpected issues and planned maintenance in your area:

If nothing shows, zoom out on the map (the site you connect to may be outside of the area)
If you see this: , you can register for email and text alerts

3. Update your network connection
Switch off and restart your phone. If this doesn’t help, check your specific phone instructions, tell your phone to try to connect to another network, and then pick Vodafone again.
4. Test your SIM card in another phone
If the issue happens everywhere, it can be caused by a faulty phone or SIM. If it's the SIM, pick up a new one free from your nearest Vodafone store. If it's the phone, check our repair page for what to do next.
