Hi @paulaveryduff




May I ask if you've tried unplugging it for a few hours and then replug back in. I've read this can help.

Dear forum


My sure signal, serial number 42144725993 has suddenly stopped working. No lights and no mobile signal.


It's my second one since Jan 2015 as the first one kept overheating and smoking.


I've tried other sockets, the reset button and restarting the router.


Any help apreciated

Miy Sure SIgnal 3 has also stopped - seems like a recurring issue. It was overheating and working intermittently so I unplugged it and nothing since - no lights or any sign of life. It is powered as the socket works. Any advice? Thanks

Thanks for getting in touch @Gerwyn, it's disappointing to hear your Sure Signals stopped working. When did you buy it? If it's still in warranty, you can pop into your local Vodafone store and they'll be happy to exchange it for you. 

Please let me know how you get on and don't hesitate to get back in touch if you have any other questions, I'll be happy to help you further.

Went to Marlow store today but they did not ahve one in stock. Checked with Maidenhead store - two in stock and sent me there. Ehen I arrived they denied getting a call from Marlow and had NONE in stock. Could onkly suggest I Google it myself to hunt for stock because they were just a franchisee! Called 191 to discuss and that did not work as when selected the Sure Signal option 4 it just responded that "Network updates are online - goodbye" and it hung up.

I use my Sure Signal for two businesses at home and have 6 mobile phones with Vodafone. Just a further shambolic esperience with Vodafone.

 That's definitely not a great experience @Gerwyn, I'm really sorry that our stores couldn't help with this, normally stock's not a problem. We'll be able to order a replacement for you, and get you back up and running again. 

I've sent you a private message with details on how to get in touch so we can get the ball rolling.


In the meantime, if you have a compatible phone, Wi-Fi calling might help. We have all the information on this service here:
