Free vodafone to vodafone calls from Eire - UK????

Hi there.

Myself and my girlfriend both swapped to vodafone a good while back so we could both make calls to eachother for free (under the top up by 20 euro's offer).

Ive just been offered a job in the uk. just wondering if she can still phone me for free from ireland if i move to the uk?

Wouldnt say so mate. Free calls and texts applies to within Ireland only. Vodafone Ireland to Vodafone UK would not be free. If you both stayed with Vodafone Ireland then you would end up paying for roaming so either way its going to cost you. Hope that helps

Hi Stacky

The free Vodafone to Vodafone texts applies only domestically, so texting a UK number would be charged at 15c.

Thanks

Seems a tad unfair, example being if I ring a friend who I know to be a vodafone customer and am signed up to the above offer, if he happens to be out of the country Im gonna be charged for the call. I would of thought if I was at home and not abroad and rang/text another vodafone customer who was abroad then I still would not be charged. To be fair how would I know if they're roaming or not???

Just my two cents

Hi Eamon

If you are texting/calling a Vodafone Ireland Number that is roaming in the uk, the free texts/calls will still apply.

I believe in the above case the OP was referring to calling a vodafone UK number, stacky apologies if I misunderstood!

The offer does not apply when you are roaming.
Standard roaming text rates apply.

With a Vodafone IE account roaming in the UK your girlfriend will be able to avail of her free VF-VF calls/texts to call and text you for free, assuming you have switched on Passport. You won't be able to call or txt her for free though.

Just to expand on that, you will pay to receive the call :)

Hello

There area number of offers available on both pay Monthly and Pay as You go. An international call add on would not be useful in this case, as it would not cover roaming calls, whihc would be calls to Irish numbers while using the phone abroad.

Hi morph,

Thanks for your post and sorry for the delay in responding here. If you are on Vodafone Passport it is free to receive a call when roaming in the UK. So if the person calling has free vodafone to vodafone calls, then this call will not cost anyone anything.

Thanks
Colm
