Hi glc1975, welcome to the eForum!
Apologies for the delay in responding - we handle all queries in the order they arrive so as to be fair to everyone. It may mean that sometimes it takes slightly longer to respond than is ideal, but everyone gets their turn this way.
We cannot give a definitive timescale on a repair as it can be dependant on the nature of the issue, whether required parts are in stock, whether the cause is known or requires investigation, and so on. If a handset is sent to the manufacturer to complete the repair, then we do not hear anything until it is returned to us.
What we do offer, however, is an online tracking system which will give you an indication of the progress of your handset. If you go to the Vodafone online repairs tracker and enter the job number provided when the repair was arranged, you'll be able to see what stage the repair is at.
If you don't have the job number, please let us know and we'll get that for you.

Thanks for getting back to me. I have attempted to use the repair tracker but the status of the repair remains blank!
I fully appreciate that should a handset need to be returned to the manufacturer then it is difficult to give a repair timescale but would it not be appropriate to inform the customer that Vodafone repairs no longer have the phone.
I'm sure that I am not the only one who is frustrated with the lack of communication from Vodafone, yourself excluded.
I'm currently using a handset that I have had to purchase as I have to have a phone for my job; this one could argue is my own fault as I could have take out the insurance but I'm actually unsure if that would cover manufacturing faults.
Any further information on the whereabouts of my handset would be helpful

Hi gjc1975, it's certainly not your fault regarding the not taking insurance you mentioned previously. In any case every handset insurance policy (certainly Network Operator insurance) I've ever come across hasn't ever covered mechanical fault, just lost, stolen & accidental damage. The 12 month warranty you are using through Vodafone to have the handset repaired is there for exactly the reason you are using it so please don't worry/blame yourself.

Thanks FDH but it would be professional if Vodafone themselves were to offer some advice.
I forgot to mention that whilst I was on the phone to upgrades rapidly loosing my patience a line manager actually informed me that it would not cost me anything to cancel my contract................
