Vodafone's web site is pretty brain-dead all round in my experience.  Every time I try to log in to my account, it waits forever then tells me the page cannot be found.  Yet if I refresh the "page which could not be found" it comes up immediately!  Go figure...

It has been like this for at least a couple of years and happens with 3 different connections using 3 different ISPs so they cannot point the blame back at my setup.

Regarding your details not being updated, I am not at all surprised.  It took me several attempts to get mine updated as well.  Maybe try again several times and if that fails, call Customer Services and complain bitterly.

Voda's web site is poorly organised i.e. hard to find what you are looking for, and really needs some work in a lot of areas.

I agree that their website is rubbish. 

I do not have any problems with my prepay account online.

BUT my girlffriend has changed her password and it wont let he sign on. Even when she gets asked her secret question she still cant sign on. We both use the same connction, so i think that the problem may be with individual accounts, if thats possible?

Vodafone entire network and systems are a dog and much too overly complicated.. I keep getting "Knox login errors from MYA.

Top marks to whomever brought in the "Custhelp" for a the FAQ on that site, it;s the first port-of-call for any tricky questions! Maybe the Reps at 777 should look into using it! :-P
