Vodafone updates plans to make life simpler

After the launch of the O2 Generation Flex and their very own “Youth network” (Vox), Vodafone have announced a new set of fresh ideas to add a bit more flexibility.

First, something called “Vodafone Passes”. These let contract customer use some data-intensive apps without chopping away at their data allowance. There’s different types of passes, including a “Chat Pass” for £3 per month which includes your Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Viber chat data. Other examples include a £5 per month “Social Pass” for your Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter; a “Music Pass” for the same price which lets you have data-free Spotify, TIDAL, Deezer, Napster, SoundCloud, Amazon Music Unlimited and Prime
Music plus a “Video Pass” at £7 each month which gives Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, DisneyLife, Vevo, My5, YouTube, UKTV Play and
TVPlayer access. All of this without any data usage.

You can also have all four passes in one for £15 per month, letting you stream, chat, listen and socialise as much as you want.

Meanwhile, Pay as you go customers can now make calls, send texts and go online without spending more than £1 a day. Nick Jeffery, Vodafone UK CEO, tells us..

With Pay as you go 1, we’re ripping up the existing pay as you go rulebook, so that customers can use their phones knowing they won’t pay for what they don’t need, and they’ll never pay more than £1 a day.

The network has also improved insurance plans for their contract customers, adding AppleCare services to iPhone plans when insurance is purchased. There’s also a 2-year warranty.
