Welcome to Vodafone Community

Pay monthly

No incoming calls or texts after porting number

3: Seeker

Hi all - i have a similar issue  Smiley Sad. I have ported a PAYG Vodafone number to Pay Monthly and the porting never happened. It's been almost a week now and I have spent endless hours with vodafone on the line - i called them daily starting Monday, had to wait for 25mins on the line each time (by now i've learned by heart the jingle vodafone plays while keeping you on hold), been passed around from one person to another and each time they have reassured me they've fixed it and that the number will be ported in 24h. If anybody from the tech support team is reading this - can you please help solve this? I can't stand the idea that tomorrow I have to start calling vodafone all over again.

thank you,

Crisz

Me too, please help me tech team. They're now saying they tried to port the number twice which is why it's not working but can't contact the tech team to sort it?! Why not?!

hi, i have the same problem. i run a service business from my mobile and am losing all my earnings. I have phoned CS who promised resolution within 48 hrs. i explained cant wait that long as i am losing customers all the time. was promised an email and mgr call- neither has materialised!

how do i get through to tech support. i cannot afford to wait 7 days for a resolution. i also did not recieve a welcome email with account number to allow porting and had to chase that 4 days after getting phone.

not a good start- please sort it out. 

if continue to lose business will seek legal redress for lost earnings and breach of contract to supply services as agreed.

Re no incoming calls or texts since porting.

 

Able to receive text and calls for 2days after porting then unable to receive any calls or text, been into store also contacted by phone to no avail,feeling totally frustrated and anxious as I have an elderly parent who has poor health so need to be able to be contacted at all times. Any help to get the problem sorted ASAP would be appreciated.

Well now 9 days in and still no further ahead cannot believe the customer service I know now what they are going to say in the next 24/48 hours even 9 days later. If anyone is thinking of going with vodefone take my advice and keep well away, even the e-mail never came which they respond within 48 hours!!! Totally disgusted and wish I had never changed to vodefone. Why such a big company cannot do what the smaller companies achieve is beyond me!!!

Customer relations are now dealing with me and said another 5 working days (from two sets of 72hours), so now I've escalated it to the CS director.

Also happened to me, I went to the vodafone shop in Cambridge (UK) at 5.30 pm, the shop was closed. However, on the door, there was a board saying their working time is 9 am - 6.00 pm From Monday to Friday. This is not a reliable company at all. I regret changing my mobile number from giffgaff to vodafone!!!!
