Welcome to Vodafone Community
When i try to visit certain websites using 4g on my android phone, it redirects me to Vodafone website. Websites are not age restricted, mostly some gaming news sites. It's really annoying, any ideas what to do.
Works normal on WiFi and with other providers.
P.S before you ask, age restriction control is off.
I am having exactly the same problem over past week, are you being redirected to the sitemap page? Also sometimes I et redirected to Vodafone page saying that the link may be broken. Went into Vodafone shop today and they don't even know what is going on
Unfortunately there has also been some recent posts similar to what's happening with you.
This could be attributed to the Content Control feature.
Most people are using Customer service on 191 or Live Chat for help.
The Vodafone Team here are aware of this issue too that's affecting some customers.
Current Phone > Samsung Note 9 512Gb > Model: SM-N960 Duos.
Samsung Gear s3 Frontier Watch.
Yes it goes to Vodafone site map.
So in general there is no solution, and nobody knows why the problem occurs.
Well if it won't get fixed i guess i will be forced to leave as i use my data a lot and don't see point in paying for half working product.
@Giorgialeigh Did you receive a reference number when submitting your email? This would be sent to you in an automated email response and will look similar to #12345678. Please confirm this back to us and we'll be happy to check on the progress of this for you.
This is a known issue and is being investigated. I'm not sure whether it's universal or only affecting some users. I'm also not sure whether the Tech Team are able to resolve it on an individual basis with account access.
I've asked about progress as it's been happening for at least a week.
I have been having exactly the same issue, have contacted Vodafone 3 times through the online web chat and spoken to their technical team who assured me there are no content restrictions on my account. However I still keep having this issue.
Having just signed up to a new contract it really isn't good enough from Vodafone as at the moment it seems they are misinforming customers, it's resolved and not providing the service they should be.
I have also just upgraded and signed a new contract with them. I wish I never bothered as I have had norbinf but Trouble since doing so. Spoke to a call centre in Indian and one of their advisors who was dealing with my complaint and they hung up on me twice when saying they are going to olace me on hold for a moment. Also spoke with tech advisor who said he would call back in couple hours and he hasn't. Really not happy at all
@Giorgialeigh As advised by Chazz earlier in this thread, our IT team are aware of this issue and are working hard to get this resolved for all affected customers, as quickly as possible.
We're sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.
Doesn't excuse the Crap customer service I have received recently, not only over this issue but over the other issues I have had since upgrading with you 6 weeks ago.
I'm suffering the same issue.
Vodafone, please sort this ASAP. I have disabled Content Control and Secure Net and yet have the same issue as many others have described here.
I've found a temporary resolution is to use the "internet" APN instead of the "wap.vodafone.co.uk" APN. Details on configuring this can be found at:
I'm disappointed though as I've been new customer for three days and am not happy that I've had to find my own workaround. I'm holding off on transferring my phone number from my previous provider until I decide not to use the 30 day cancellation clause.
i am having the same problem and it is getting frustrating that people have been reporting this issue for so long. I am not paying for a service i am not recieving.
