So I've just got my Vodafone mobile setup, I've been sent an email saying "Hey, we have a cool mobile app for you, go download 'My Vodafone' from the App Store". So I go and do just that, it takes me through the registration process, but when I enter my email address it tells me that I already have an account registered to that email address.

Of course I do, I think, it was setup for me when I first signed up with Vodafone. Who doesn't already have an account?

Surely this is a solved problem, and I must have missed a login link somewhere... but no, it turns out this is a common problem and there's a bunch of posts all over the Vodafone community forum and other forums about it.

The accepted solution appears to be some Vodafone community volunteer* manually deleting your existing account so that it can be re-created through the app.

Seriously? I don't understand how 'login' is a feature that was missed out of the app creation process...

</rant>

* aka a Vodafone staff member that volunteers their time on the forum it appears, you guys are saints if that's actually the case and you do it on your own time

@madmatt it's quite simple call 777 and ask the staff member to delete your Knox profile for email address example@example.com

Edit: let us know how you get on calling 777 and hold time as well before you speak to someone

Hi John,

Thanks for your quick response. Rang through to 777, options 0 for customer service and 1 for mobile. Got through immediately (not even a ringtone) to a CSR who understood what I wanted and got it taken care of, and it works fine now. Bit of an issue using a secure password, but got there in the end :)

If you can feed suggestions back in to these teams, it's a pretty confusing process where something that one Vodafone staff member does gets deleted by someone else for no reason, but at least it's solved now!

I decided (possibly a bad decision) to try and change my mobile plan at the weekend. After realising the new one wouldn't be better value for money, I decided to roll back to my old plan. I've been assured this has been done, however when I select My Vodafone from the homepage, it tells me I need to call 777 to setup my login. Tried twice and waited over 5 minutes before giving up.
Can someone please get my login working for me? It all worked fine yesterday.

I should point out that everything still works (voice/text/data etc) just I have no idea of knowing how much I've used.
