Got my monthly bill this morning, I seem to have been billed for internet, phone and "best mates" separately, the total is nearly 50% more than usual. Is this just me or did it happen to others as well?




Yes I tried calling Vodafone but the voice message said they were having trouble and I should call back later...

If this is the first invoice it could have part month charges on it as well
