Vodafone broadband customers can earn rewards

If you’re an existing broadband customer and sign up to a bill pay phone plan, you could choose from one of these two tempting rewards:

  1. Save €5 per month for 18 months on your broadband, or
  2. Get 5Gb additional mobile data for 18 months

To qualify, your broadband and mobile services will need to be fully connected and linked to the same account and account holder.

If you’re eligible, you’ll be offered a reward at the point of sale, terms and conditions apply.

Got extra bill pay plans?

If you have a broadband plan and two linked mobile subscriptions, you can benefit from both rewards.

Connect three or more bill pay plans together (up to a maximum of 6) and you can choose from RED Family, saving you €20 on each extra plan, or another reward.

Not all tariffs are included as part of this offer e.g. business tariffs, pay as you go tariffs and mobile broadband tariffs.

Vodafone Mobile FAQs

Can I keep my mobile number?

Yes, this is called ‘porting’ your number and makes changing network a much smoother process.

Keeping your number means you won’t have to tell all your friends and family your new number or risk losing contact with anyone.

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

Can I upgrade to a handset plan from a Vodafone SIM-only plan?

With a 30-day SIM-only plan, you have the freedom to upgrade or change your plan at any time, without worrying about exit fees or charges.

With Vodafone, 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.

Is Vodafone's mobile data truly unlimited?

Yes. You don’t have to worry about a fair usage policy or any data caps, as Vodafone’s mobile data really is unlimited.

What is a SIM-only plan?

A SIM-only plan allows you to just pay for data, calls and texts. When you sign up you’ll get a SIM card with an allocation of data, texts and minutes, but the deal won’t include a phone.

SIM-only plans are generally cheaper and will save you money if you already have a phone you are happy with.

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.

What do I need to switch to a Vodafone SIM-only plan?

Once you decide on the plan you want, you can sign up online quickly and easy.

If you’re a bill-pay customer, you can then activate your new SIM card by dialling 1907 from another phone and then:

  • choosing Option 1 for Mobile Services;
  • then choosing Option 3 for SIM Activation; and
  • finally, choosing Option 1 for SIM Activation and entering your new SIM Number and Self Service PIN.

You may also need to contact your current mobile phone provider if you need to unlock your handset.
