Vodafone is a load off W*NK 

 

so I’ve been speaking to agents online and on phone for a number off times and visited a store and even spoke to them. It’s like they don’t have a clue what they are doing. Telling me to keep hard setting the watch it’s just gonna mess up the watch in the end. 

 

So so when I try to add cellular data form the iwatch app via the iPhone it’s says loading Vodafone UK plan then it goes then I click add data and it goes to a white screen saying loading please wait this should take a couple of seconds then it just goes back to the iwatch app useless phone network don’t know what they are doing there self. 

 

Im ready to leave I don’t care if I have to pay an exit fee Vodafone is trash

Hi, I have the same problem and have literally spoken to 20 different people at Vodafone and spent HOURS trying to sort this with absolutely zero progress. 

 

I have 3 personal contracts with Vodafone and my entire work organisation is on it too and I am tempted to cancel the entire lot today unless this is sorted

same problem hear.what a bunch of complete idiots.i even got told today that they are sending me a special text message that will automatically set up my phone and watch.i should receive this special text within 20-30 mins but nothing.after ringing 191 I get told that after 15 minutes if I unpair and re pair my watch it should work as in 99% of the time it works but it could take up too the usual 24hours to work.have now realised that once they say anything about waiting 24 hours it actually means they have no idea whatsoever how to fix it and by saying leave it for 24 hours gets you to end the call.

hi, I have the exact same problem as the first 3 or 4 posts on this thread  - when I click set up mobile data on the watch phone app, I get the white screen that asks to "wait while the screen is loading, this may take a few seconds" and then it disappears and returns to the set up mobile data.

No matter how many time i try, the same thing happens!

Is there a workaround for this or is it possible for a direct link to be sent to my text or email? 

Can anyone help?

That’s exactly the same as what’s happening to my watch since I upgraded to sim only on Saturday even though I was assured my watch would still work.having spent countless hours to online chat and to 191 I have given up.they will ask you too try all manner of things which is just a ploy to get you off the phone or chat.i was promised a call back today at 6pm but never did so I called 191 again and was told please please trust me and it will be sorted out in 48 hours.as I have 30 days notice on the new contract I will just leave and go with a different company that actually no how to set it up.

Gemma, I am having the same issue... I press Mobile Data. Vodafone is already there, and it starts 'Activating' it, then brings me to a white page asking me to wait, but this pops up quickly then it just brings me back to the front menu screen on the Watch app, and nothing has happened on my Watch, no cellular.

 

Can one of your team contact me to get mine sorted. Thanks!
