Vodafone SIMs aren't cheap, however you do get a lot of benefits for your money, such as VeryMe Rewards and Entertainment plans.

However, depending on the plan you have, roaming within the EU may not be free. Make sure you choose a qualifying Xtra plan to enjoy free EU roaming.

Can I get unlimited data with a Vodafone SIM?

Yes, Vodafone have unlimited data options for 24 month, 12 month and 30 day contracts.

However, you should be aware that Vodafone has 3 different Unlimited plans, each with different download speed limits:

  • Vodafone Unlimited Lite - 2 Mbps download speed limit
  • Vodafone Unlimited - 10 Mbps download speed limit
  • Vodafone Unlimited Max - No speed limits

If you don’t want any speed limits, and you wish to enjoy full 5G, make sure you choose an Unlimited Max plan.

All non-unlimited plans do not include speed limits.

Can I use my Vodafone SIM abroad?

You can roam in most countries with a Vodafone SIM, however after Brexit, you may not be able to use your allowance within the EU for free.

If you're on one of the following Xtra plans, you can continue to roam and use your allowance for free within Europe:

  • Vodafone Unlimited data Xtra plan with 4 Xtra benefits (you can also use your allowance in some countries outside Europe, for a total of 83)

For all other plans, you will have to pay:

As Vodafone is situated in many countries, they are the only UK network that will allow you to roam in 5G within Europe from over 240 locations, such as Germany, Italy and Spain.

Can I get a Vodafone SIM if I have a bad credit rating?

If you have a bad credit rating, you may struggle to get a long term plan with a Vodafone SIM, such as a 12 month contract or 24 month contract.

However, Vodafone do offer 30 days plans. You’re likely to be accepted with a 30 day plan even if you have a bad credit rating.

Vodafone 30 day SIMs

Vodafone offer several different 30 day SIM plans, however they are generally more expensive compared to their longer 12 month and 24 month contracts.

A 30 day SIM allows for greater flexibility, allowing you to change your plan at any time you wish. Plus as you’re no tried to a long term contract, you can easily switch to a different network if you find a better deal elsewhere.

Do I need to unlock my phone to use a Vodafone SIM?

If you bought your phone from Vodafone, or it originally came with a Vodafone SIM, then you shouldn’t need to unlock your phone in order to use a Vodafone SIM.

Since December 2021, it is illegal for any network to sell a mobile phone that is locked to a specific network.

If you bought your phone before this date, it may be locked to your current network. If you’re unsure if your phone is unlocked, simply insert a SIM from a different network - if your phone is locked, an error message will be shown.

All providers must unlock your phone for free. You will need to contact your current network to do this. They will ask for your IMEI number, which you can obtain by dialing *#06# from your phone.

What size SIM cards can I get with Vodafone?

Vodafone offer all SIM cards sizes, including eSIMs. You will be sent a standard SIM card size, which will have cutouts that can be broken down to a micro SIM or nano SIM. You can switch to an eSIM if you have a phone which supports the technology.

  1. Standard - the largest SIM card size, which is generally used with older non-smartphones. Newer phones are likely to use micro or nano SIMs.

  2. Micro - Once considered a smaller replacement for standard SIMs, micro SIMs are less prevalent today, being replaced by the even smaller nano SIM. Older smartphones or budget phones may still use a micro SIM.

  3. Nano - The smallest and most common SIM card size used in phones sold today. Used by the newer iPhones and Samsungs.

  4. eSIM - A digital SIM card. eSIMs are still a new technology, and are not commonly used in the UK right now. However, Vodafone do offer eSIMs for newer phones which support it, such as the Apple iPhone 13.

Can I switch from my current network to a Vodafone SIM?

Yes, it’s easy to switch to Vodafone. From your current network, text PAC to 65075 for free. You will receive a reply text within 5 minutes, which will contain your PAC code.

You will need to give this PAC code to Vodafone. You can do this at the time of purchase, or by contacting Vodafone after you have received your Vodafone SIM card.

After you have given your PAC code to Vodafone, they will begin the switch or your behalf, which normally takes 3 working days. Once the switch has completed, you will lose signal with your current network. When this happens, you can insert your Vodafone SIM to complete the switching process.

For more information, see transferring your phone number to a new network.
