Sorry for repeat asking the above.
6 wks ago I signed onto a new 18 month contract and ported my number over from Orange which was on a Sim Only deal. This number use to be Vodafone and an online account was set up previously and working fine. When the contract ended I assumed this online account would disappear.
So when Ive tried to set up a new online account with exactly same email address and number as before, it would be okay. Guessing because it recognises this email as being already set up the new account is not being set up as primary account. Hence why Im getting this Administrator Approval error.
I spoken to 191 which led me round in circles. Bit of a language barrier the woman on the other end sounded Eastern European with weak english.
What I got from her was my deleted wait 24hrs and try again.
Tried it again same old story.
Any way of approving this account or deleting any previous accounts associated with the same number. Or am I stuck with this???
Any help will be gladly appreciated.

Hi arfond, sarahsm80 and salisbury
Thanks for your posts. It is correct that if you've registered for an online account with a temporary number and then ported that you'll need to re-register and your old account deleted. @salisbury - in your case it will be a matter of deleting the old account from our back end systems so that you can re-register.

I cannot access my online accouunt.
I took out a vodafone pay monthly contract after leaving another provider just under 2 months ago. This new vodafone number worked fine and the online account was accessable. Then my old number was ported to vodafone and became active, I could no longer use all the features of my online account. I called customer service and was told that the account would deleted and infomation reset. I waited the 24hr as requested and reregistered with my number I had moved to vodafone. After logging in I was then told that I (the account holder) did have authorisation and my account needed to be authorised by the main account holder (me) An email is sent to my address telling me to log in to my account and authorise it. I do this, only to be met with the same message. On contacting vodafone customer support am told there is a problem with the old number and ported number being used for the same account so the account will be deleted and I need to re-register again etc. I do this but still the same problem. I have called vodafone 6 times recently and reset my account almost as many times. No one seems able to help.
To make matters worse,, the only reason I wanted the online account as to print out a valid VAT invoice for my accounting. While the account is apparrently being sorted out I asked for (and am happy to pay for) itemised paper bills but after two payments nothing has turned up in the post, yet other post from vodafone has so the address they have is correct.
How hard can it possibly be to a) sort out an online account, b) post out a paper bill and c) provide a VAT inoice that is legally required. Surely fair ground for early termination of the contract...
Can anyone from vodafone please sort this out for me???

"Your online account administrator hasn't approved your request to access your online Vodafone account. Until you are approved you will have limited access to online services."
I have this message, but I am the account holder, there is nobody else, so how do I gain approval on my account?
Been in contact with Vodafone advisors by phone and online chat, but so far they havent been able to help resolve this issue - once again Im hoping the Vodafone eForum techies members can help!

Your request hasn't been approved yet
Your request to access My account needs to be approved by the person who set up the account. You can send them a reminder.
Can someone from Vodafone look into this

I also have the exact same problem as described above. I have had my account deleted on more than 8 occasions to only find the same problem everytime I re-register. Could you please assist with this!

Thanks your your post regarding the My Account registration issues you're facing. It seems as though there's a remnant of a previous registration attempt that's still logged on the system somewhere that's causing the message you're getting. We can certainly take a look for you, so I've sent you a PM which you can access here.

Hi there i registered for my vodafone yesterday and i cannot access my account properly it says that i need it authorised by the account administrator which is me! I only have one log in to access so i cant authorise this. i spoke to someone from customer services yesterday afternoon who said that they were sorting it and it would take between 4-24 hours which was well over 24 hours ago. i am getting really annoyed about this and would appreciate some help
