As for Hungary, +36 21 xxx xxxx DID numbers are available for free. These are not landline but "nomadic" numbers (in fact VoIP). Several networks charge as if these were landline. Vodafone Hungary (how funny) have set a HIGH fee for calling these numbers. I would wonder what Vodafone UK charges.

Default Vodafone´s summer holiday prices - 15-05-2009, 12:15

So here are some of Vodafone´s european roaming charges this summer:

Vodafone UK: 0c connection charge within Europe with "Vodafone Passport". (Free european roaming)
Vodafone Germany: 75c connection charge within Europe with "Vodafone ReiseVersprechen".
Vodafone Ireland: 79c connection charge within Europe with "Vodafone Passport".
Vodafone Spain: 115c connection charge within Europe with "Vodafone Passport".

I don´t understand why vodafone´s customers outside the UK are not complaining. The media in Germany, Ireland and Spain don´t seem to understand how their citizens are going to be "treated" by vodafone.


Perhaps Inquistor, dg7feq, 9ero9 and Henning can spread the news in Germany. Perhaps PatPhelan can complain in Ireland, if he still has a vodafone sim.

Pat, Good luck with the launch of your 4th generation maxRoam sim in June!

And what should Vodafone Hungary customers say about the Vodafone Passport offer here: cca. 1.03 EUR / connection fee, which is to be paid every 10 minutes started!...

The solution is simple....get a vodafone UK sim card for the summer!

(Incidentally, I am still not sure of one thing.....their advertising talk of lying on the beach (presumably in some sunny place like Spain) and leaving your phone on and using it just as if you are home. I get that. Reception of calls will be free. But what about calling out? As I thought about it they can't mean (or do they) that you get the same international rates say to the USA (5p/minute) jif you call from outside the UK. Or does it? It's not clear to me but I profess that I'm dumb. Anybody know the answer.

Default Vodafone´s new plans - 15-05-2009, 13:42

Vodafone´s press release yesterday refers to two tariff changes.

1. The new (permanent) international plan for calls from the UK only, which started today. Vodafone Pay as You Go call costs on the "Simply Tariff for Vodafone International" are given at the bottom of this link: Vodafone UK Abolishes Roaming Charges for Summer and Permanently Cuts the Price Of Calling Abroad from the UK - Vodafone

USA, Canada, China: 5 ppm (Cost to call landline), 5 ppm (Cost to call mobile)
Plus new prices to some other countries.

2. The new Vodafone UK Passport plan, which begins on 1st June.
Vodafone Passport ? mobile phone calls when roaming abroad

Calling the USA from Spain will not be 5 ppm. Calling UK landline from Spain will be 5 ppm. Calling spanish landline from Spain will be 5 ppm.

Sorry, my last comments are incorrect.

Calling UK landline from Spain will be 5 ppm: wrong.

Default Different Vodafone Passport Tariffs Across Europe - 15-05-2009, 19:34

Vodafone Passport Tariffs Across Europe

For years, Vivane Redding has been pressurising the mobile telecoms companies to reduce their european roaming charges. Yet there has been no significant public discussion across Europe about the new vodafone UK roaming tariff, which was announced on May 14 2009.

If you want cheaper roaming charges across Europe, please help to publicise vodafone´s different passport tariffs. Knowledge about the price differences might motivate people to protest, and other mobile telecom companies may be forced to reduce their roaming charges.

Business journalists, bloggers and technical writers will write about vodafone in the next few days. And many will need a list of vodafone´s different european passport tariffs. Can you help to compile such a list?


For each of vodafone´s different european passport tariffs, journalists need know:

1. The cost per minute for receiving an incoming roaming call in another european country.
2. The cost per minute for making an out-going call from a roaming country, back to the home country.

Here is a list of vodafone´s different european web sites. If you can find, or check, the passport tariff details, please list the information in this thread.


Czech Republic
Vodafone - Osobní: Mobilní telefony, Tarify, Slu?by a nastavení, Vodafone live!, eShop, Samoobsluha

Germany
Vodafone Auslandstarife - bequem und kostengünstig ins Ausland telefonieren - Vodafone D2 - Privat / Tarife / Auslandstarife

Greece
Vodafone.gr - ????????? / Roaming

Hungary
Vodafone - Roaming - Külföldi Mobilhasználat

Ireland
Let's go Roaming with Vodafone Passport

Italy
Tariffe e promozioni Vodafone per l'estero

Malta
Vodafone Malta - Mobile Phones, Wireless Internet & Broadband

Netherlands
Bellen in het buitenland

Portugal
Roaming Vodafone

Romania
Personal - Vodafone.ro

Spain
Vodafone: Vodafone Passport Llamadas al mismo Precio en la Unión Europea



An incomplete list of Vodafone´s different "Passport" tariffs within Europe:

Vodafone UK: 0c connection charge (in & out). Vodafone´s single offer of free european roaming.
Vodafone Germany: 75c connection charge (in & out). "Vodafone ReiseVersprechen"
Vodafone Ireland: 79c connection charge (in & out).
Vodafone Italy: 75c connection charge (in) + 75c every 30 minutes. 75c connection charge (out).
Vodafone Hungary: c. 1.03 EUR charge (in & out) every 10 minutes.
Vodafone Spain: 1.15 EUR connection charge (in & out).
Vodafone Malta: 1.16 EUR charge (in) every 10 minutes. 1.00 EUR connection charge (out).


Please copy and publicise Vodafone´s different european "Passport" tariffs in other forums and across the internet.

babble...

It should only take one...that's what happened as I pointed out elsewhere in the USA...today it is unheard of on most of the USA cell carriers to have a litimed calling area...the USA is one big roaming area...you pay the same to receive a call if you have a T Mobile USA account in NY when you're in California as you do in NY. And it costs the same to make the call. I think that's the model Ms. Redding has hoped Europe to emulate.

As I said, I just can't see how the other vodafone companies can fail to match vodafone UK and I can[t see how the other British cell providers can afford not to match either. The only question is what will happen at the end of the summer.

Default Pressure to abolish european roaming tariffs - 15-05-2009, 20:03

Yes, I agree with you entirely. The greater the public discussion, the greater the pressure on the mobile telecoms companies to completely abolish european roaming tariffs.

And my apologies to Ms Reding for previously misspelling her surname.
