Before Vodafone Customer Service deal with your inquiry, they will need to verify your identity. They do this to ensure that someone else is not trying to access your account. To help them do this quickly, make sure you have all the relevant information they may ask for to hand. This may include: your name, address, postcode, telephone numbers, customer account number, contract number, your account details and any password or answer to a secret question you have provided as a means to identify yourself.
Getting to talk to the right person
When contacting large organisations, like Vodafone, you will often be asked to use your telephone keypad to select a range of options so that you are put through to the right person to help you. Listen carefully to the recorded message to make sure you understand which department you want to speak to. If none of the options are appropriate for your inquiry, either choose the most likely option or press no key at all. With the latter, sometimes you can be put through to general inquiries who can find the best person for you to talk to.
Dealing with Vodafone Customer Service on the phone
When talking to Vodafone Customer Service, always try and explain things clearly, this way the person dealing with your inquiry will be able to help you better. If you are calling to complain about something, try to remain calm at all times. Please remember that the person on the other end of the line is only doing their job and following instructions.
If you cannot get a satisfactory response from the person you are dealing with or you are unhappy with the service you are getting, politely ask for their name and then ask to be put through to their manager. If this is not successful, take the manager’s name also. You may then need to write to a more senior manager to raise the issue.

History of Vodafone
The Vodafone company was launched over 30 years ago and has grown to deliver mobile phone networks across 21 different countries; far from its humble beginnings in January 1985. The original phone call made using Vodafone was on a mobile phone called the ‘Transportable Vodafone’ or VT1 in its abbreviated form, and it was constructed by the son of Vodafone’s first chairman. This phone call was the first ever Happy New Year message sent by a mobile phone and instigated a brand new era for the mobile phone industry and communications in general.The VT1 mobile was a colossal device in comparison with today’s standards, weighing in at 11lbs, but by the end of 1985, over 12,000 handsets had been sold. Since then, the Vodafone network has grown to the international giant that it is today. In addition to Vodafone’s phone and messaging services, Vodafone now provides a wealth of other services including the ‘One Net Express’, which enables customers to access a landline phone number from a mobile phone. This new service is extremely beneficial to businesspeople who need a landline phone to contact the office or clients. The One Net Business Service enables users to centralise their contact details including mobile number, landline number and access to voicemail messages all from a mobile phone.
Dongles and Wifi
To keep up with the demand to stay connected, Vodafone now provides dongle packages for business users or individual customers who need to stay connected on the go. Packages such as these are purchased on a 30-day rolling contract. Find out more by watching the video below.
