    Seen that we have an O2 thread thought it be a good idea to have a Vodafone one so we can post updates and info and find it easier than browsing the UK thread.

    I have ordered a Space Grey iPhone 6 Plus 64GB hopefully expected on the 19th.
    currently at the confirmation stage.

    I sat on hold for about an hour while attacking their website. Eventually got my order in online at about 9:00am. Went for the £53.50 4G plan with £129 up front iP6+ 64GB Space Grey.

    I worked out it's about £200 cheaper [than buying the phone SIM free] over 24 months than what I have SIM only at the moment. I do go down from 8GB data to 7GB but I can live with that.

    Got my 'Thank you' and 'Order Confirmed' emails about a minute apart.

    I only managed to get my two iPhone orders in on the phone at 11.15am

    I have had two texts which I got straight away. I then got an email on Saturday morning saying that they will try their best to get the iPhone 6 plus on launch day but cannot guarantee it. No email about my iPhone 6.

    Order shows as "accepted" on their tracker.

    6/64/SG Ordered online (as upgrade) at 10:04 on Friday 12th.

    Delivery was stated as 19th, so fingers crossed.

    I ordered online just after 9am for a SG 6P 64GB. Expected on the 19th. It's at the stage 2 accepted last time I checked.

    Here's hoping it changes soon and we get them Friday

    Apparently so. Oh well, more chance of them being able to fulfil our orders on Fridat then.

    Considering how many people are active in this thread, I'm disturbed by how many have also ordered a 6+ 64GB SG :mad:

    I hope they have enough :p

    They wouldn't let me use it on top of another discount :-/ so I had to pick one. Both are 20% discounts and the guy was like 'which one do you want?'.

    *facepalm*

    Anyway...

    I believe Voda use DPD? If so you'll be able to track the van online and have a much better idea of when it's being delivered.

    Hi,
    I also work for one of the companies in there advantage scheme, how do I go about enrolling for the 20% discount before the phone arrives? It says I need my mobile phone number to register?

    Many Thanks
    James

    Call up Voda or drop into a store.

    All you need is the name of your company and a company email address that you have access to. (IIRC).

    Has above but if you don't have a work email address just take proof in like photo id. That's what I did

    Mine was a upgrade so they had number on file but if your a new customer with no number yet it's probably true

    Over on the Voda forums, people are saying their orders are moving from stage 2 to stage 3. Mine hasn't moved yet :mad::eek::confused:

    I'm also with Vodafone. Ordered the 6+ 64GB SG on the £58.50 & £99 upfront and got my confirmation email at 8:17am on 12/09, but as with you guys, the tracker is still on stage 2. I've also have my VEA discount confirmed this morning, so that's something at least! :)

    As far as I can see, a few people that ordered the 6 64GB have had their status updated. No other sizes for the 6 and no 6+ at all.

    They probably opened a pallet full of 64GB iP6's and are working through that one first.
