Welcome to Vodafone Community
Since I received my new phone, a Xiaomi Note 9, I have been receiving the same message almost every day from Vodafone: "It's time to get connected. To enable data on this device, connect to a WiFi network and head to https://deviceguides.vodafone.co.uk/set-up-your-phone-for-internet.
Then select your device, follow the simple steps and you'll be good to go."
I have already connected the phone to mobile data, over a week ago now, but as soon as I am away from my home Wifi I get this same message, and I can't work out how to stop the messages coming.
I have been through this SAME PROCESS several times! It's really driving me bonkers. FYI, my APN is currently set to "Vodafone Internet" with the link "wap.vofafone.co.uk". However, there is also an APN "Pay Monthly Data" with the same link. Should this be ticked instead? This is what it was originally set to, but then I kept getting these stupid messages!
Thank you all for the replies, and the last instruction seems to have stopped the messages. I will wait until I am away from home and on mobile data before knowing if it's fixed for good. But your help is much appreciated.
Sure enough, as soon as I left home this morning I received the same text from Vodafone telling me to connect to mobile data - which I ignored. More annoyingly, I have to reboot the phone before it connects to mobile data, very frustrating when using GPS in the car. I am of the opinion that it is a problem with the new phone, a Xiaomi Note 9; this never happened with my old phone.
