Vodafone Mobile FAQs
Can I keep my mobile number?
Yes, this is called ‘porting’ your number and makes changing network a much smoother process.

Your new network will guide you through the steps you need to take to port your mobile number

What are the advantages of SIM-only deals?
If you’ve paid off your phone and are still happy with your handset, you’ll save money by switching to a SIM-only deal. The advantages of switching to a SIM-only deal include:
- You can keep your existing phone
- SIM-only plans are cheaper
- It’s flexible, with no contract tie-ins
- It’s a good way to check how a new network performs without locking into a 2-year deal
Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy your phone outright and then go for a SIM-only deal, especially if you don’t mind buying a refurbished phone.
Can I upgrade to a handset plan from a Vodafone SIM-only plan?
Yes, you can. The best way to change your price plan is by using the My Vodafone app, then going to My Plan -> Change my plan. You can also change your plan by logging into My Vodafone.
It’s also possible to tailor your existing plan by choosing from a range of add-ons, like extra international minutes and data, or Sky Sports Mobile TV or Spotify Premium.
How long will it take for my SIM to arrive from Vodafone?
Vodafone offers fast, free delivery within the Republic of Ireland. Once your order is confirmed, your SIM will arrive in a few days via An Post.
What is Vodafone Always Connected?
It’s a 4G backup for when your broadband suffers disruption.
If you experience any problems with your broadband connection, Always Connected will automatically switch all your devices to a 4G connection so you don’t lose access to the internet. When the problem is resolved it will switch back to broadband as before.
