I have been trying for the last few days to contact the Employee Advantage team re upgrading my phone when it is due on 11th August.
So far, each time my questions have been replied by a standard automated response, without actually answering my question.
I am able to upgrade early on 11/8/11 according to my account, and have full access to all Vodafone tariffs and phones etc.
I want to upgrade to Iphone 4 on 24mth contract, 900 mins, and free phone, £40 per month.
My question is that after reading various stories from other users about their 20% discount request being declined, I want to check that this tariff/deal is definitely eligible for the discount.
I know that my employer is definitely part of the scheme, but I'm sure you'll understand that I don't want to enter into a new contract and then find that I can't get the discount.
Please can you help as I've had no reply to my questions so far.
If you need any further info, please let me know.

Not a problem - I can understand wanting to be sure!
Any specific questions on the Employee Advantage scheme and your discount need to be addressed by email to the Employee Advantage team who will then respond back via email within two days. To do this, you need to click the Employee advantage link on your company’s intranet and follow the instructions there to submit the details.
This is designed to ensure that your query is handled specifically by a team with access to the information you’re looking for, and is why Customer Services have been unable to provide the answer when you’ve contacted them.
I trust this has helped - if so, please drop me some feedback!

Thanks for your post here. I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling with this. I appreciate how frustrating this must be for you.
Unfortunately we’ll be unable to see anything on your account and as such you really need to speak to this specific team.
Can you try giving your corporate team a call on 03333 044444?
Or try emailing the Employee Advantage team on email@example.com if you haven’t already.
Let me know how you get on and if you need anything else please let me know.
Want to give feedback about me?
You can do so here

How would I find out which employers are on scheme? Is it all employers who use Vodafone as business use?? E.G my employer probably has a couple if hundred handsets in use??
The list of companies included in the Employee Advantage Programme can be found on the previous thread.

Welcome to the Vodafone eForum from all of the team.
I must admit that we don’t come across this type of question very often and as such it has taken a little bit of research to come up with what I believe is the solution for you.
From what I can see all of the information you need can be found on the employee advantage web page, including the online form and the terms and conditions of the offer.
If you have any issues, please let me know.
If you have any comments regarding how I have handled your query today, please complete our short customer feedback survey.

I've been attempting to sign up for this alleged discount for the past week. The process seems fairly laughable and no-one in customer services or instore seems to know the proper procedure. Have had a lot of conflicting advice and am getting annoyed with the process. A colleague of mine gets a similar discount with Orange, she had no problems at all signing up for their discount.
Applied online at vodafone.co.uk/vea, filled the form in and had an email confirming my application and saying I would hear back in two working days.
After hearing nothing I called customer services who told me to apply again. This sounded pretty suspect but I did it anyway. Result- nothing.
Went instore and asked to sign up there, the guy filled in pretty much the same online form and the same result.
Emailed firstname.lastname@example.org twice who have not replied.
Have spoken again to a much more helpful customer service agent today who told me to email email@example.com to sort it out. More waiting but will see what happens.

It can sometimes take a little longer to reply, but if they have not got back to her saying that the info is duff, then 9 times out of 10 no news is good news.
The discount won't show on your myaccount or anywhere else, but will be applied when your bill is generated if it is applied.
One of the team should be able to take a look at your account tomorrow and see if anything has been applied as yet.

Yea - sometimes the 48 hour stated turns into 3 or 4 days if things are really busy (mostly at the time of a new phone launch)
How long did it take to get the question back after the initial application?
As mentioned someone will find this thread eventually (it was last posted on in 2011 so won't be on the radar for the staff to start with) and then after contacting them through instruction in a PM sent to you, you should get an answer...
Roughly how long do you have left of your 30 days?

Thanks for your replies.
