Hi @davekiwi

 

 

I think you may find that Vodafone do not comment on when / if a release will happen for a Windows phone. Sadly apps always seem to be lacking for this OS. 

 

I would suggest speaking with Vodafones Broadband Tech. 

 

 

Got a question?

You're welcome. 

 

As i say Apps for this particular OS seem to be lacking.  Smiley Sad

 

One reason my partner dropped her Nokia Lumia phone and chose an iPhone.

I see your conundrum. 

 

Looking at the help page it highlights Android and iPhone options. 

 

Perhaps use the telephone number provided.

Just a little update. 

 

Someone has kindly passed this information onto me. 

 

You can access the router through typing vodafone.connect when on the WiFi or 192.168.1.1 and theres even a YouTube video:

Yes I know that but as I am on windows 10 I cannot use the new boost function on the router on the 20th which is my live date.

Ok David. 

 

Just thought id pass on the knowledge. 

 

Perhaps invest in a cheap basic Android phone or a used one from somewhere such as CEX so you can take advantage of the App. 

 

Again just another avenue to consider.

I use WM10 too and for the few weeks i was on VF Fibre, i downloaded bluestacks on the pc, its an android emulator, that allowed me to get the app and set the boost functions. But honestly i dont see the point of the boost, if VF give proper controls over the router it wouldn't be needed

 

for android apps now tho, i got a kindle for £40 from tesco and downloaded an hack to install the play store on it
