Welcome to Vodafone Community
We have a "Mifi" - Vodafone Mobile WiFi model R219h which we bought for use in our flat in Warrenpoint, UK.
It seemed to work fine but it turns out the Mifi was connecting to Vodafone 4g in the Republic of Ireland, just across the water. This quickly used up the roaming data allowance on the account and now the Mifi is essentially useless until the next billing period.
I'm trying to find a way to force the Mifi to NOT connect to the (stronger?) roaming signal and instead use the unlimited non-roaming data allowed by our account. Fiddling with the data roaming and automatic network connection in the Mifi's settings doesn't seem to help.
Anyone got any ideas? Or is the Mifi essentially not fit for purpose this close to the border?
Solved! Go to best answer.
As I mentioned, I've tried that to no avail. When I disable data roaming, the Mifi _still_ connects to Vodafone Ireland instead of Vodafone UK, but does not allow any data services at all. What I need is a way to force the Mifi to connect to Vodafone UK.
