Hi markshelton, welcome to the eForum!
Apologies for the delay in getting to you - as noetic says, we generally work on a first come first served basis, although sometimes we may step in when we receive a post to steer someone towards specific troubleshooting threads as these are designed to provide most of the common answers for the customer and if needed, get them to give us specific information to help with the resolution.
The 7-10 bank working days is the time taken by the banking system to clear the payment once we process the payment back to you - it's not a timescale we set, but one that we have to work with.
So we can see if there is any way we can get this for you sooner, or at the very least t get the payment on its way back for you, I’ll need to send you an email to get your account details. If you can reply back with the requested information we'll be happy to help.

i recieved this last tuesday
many thanks for getting back to us with your details.
I can see that our finance teams have actioned the refund from your account for you yesterday 01/08/2011 and the refund is already in process.
As stated this can take up to 7-10 days however it will normally be back to you within a couple of days.
Unfortunately we are unable to process this any quicker than this due to system restrictions.
its now been a week and still no refund..(ill thank the eforum team for the speedy responses with dealing with thisa matter) i know this has still not been 7-10 working days and i accept that..but i know only have £4.20 to last me from now till i get paid on friday..if i dont have this refund returned by tomorow or weds im very tempted to have my contract cancelled and ill happily send my phone back to vodafone shop it came from

Thank you for your post.
I am sorry to hear you feel this way and that the situation you are in is not ideal, I understand your frustration as I too have been in a similar situation before.
In your post you have pretty much answered your own questions, I wish that I could speed up the process, and as Dave mentioned earlier this is out of our control.
I hope the money is back in your account by the time you read this.
