Re: vodafone charging me for calls i have not made!

I have the same problem! I'm so mad!!! Apparently my 11yr old called a number in US or Canada for nearly 2 hours!! This is impossible, he cant make international calls and we know NOBODY in these countries!! let alone him find a code for either country!! I have maybe traced the number to a business but it is one number missing!!!.

His phone usage shows he is barely ever on a call more than 30 seconds! I'm furious vodafone are calling me a liar!!

Re: vodafone charging me for calls i have not made!

Very strange, it will be interesting to see where the calls originated from.


When you say he can't make international calls, is this because they are barred by the network, or he does not know how?

If barred then it should be impossible for the call to connect, if just lacking knowing how do the phones call logs show anything around this time? Could the phone have become unlocked in his bag and dialled a random set of digits?


+1 402 280 8000 would be the number and is a complete USA telephone number, so no numbers missing there.


Hang around for the tech team to get to the post (as you have dug one up from over a year ago, it may take a few hours) and they should be able to look into it for you.

Hi jema77,


If the call can be seen to originate from your phone, we are limited in what we can do. We can certainly prevent any such calls being made but will need to access your account. To allow us to do so, I’ve just sent you a PM.


You can find your PM inbox here. If you can’t access this link, please ensure that the box next to “Turn on private messages” is ticked on this page, and let us know if you need any further assistance.


If you can follow the details in the PM, we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.





I’m part of the Vodafone Tech Team and here to help. As this is a public forum, we can only answer non account specific queries. Please note, we’re unable to reply to private messages.

Re: vodafone charging me for calls i have not made!

Data charges tend to be agglomerated, so this will probably be several connections during the day, rather than one big (and very quick!) one.  That doesn't answer your main question, but the team here will certainly be able to look at it for you.

Hi d133791k,


As hrym has said, our mobile usage is merged together as one charge on each day, rather than a huge list of every single connection.


So that we can look into the other issue, take a look here for how to get in touch.


We aim to reply to emails within 48 hours. If you need a quicker response, please visit our Contact us page.
