The best Vodafone deals in July 2019

vodafone deals

Vodafone is one of the biggest networks in the world and by far one of the most powerful brands in the UK. Not surprising when they so frequently offer excellent tariffs on flagship handsets like the iPhone XR, Galaxy S9 and the market's other favourite phones.

Vodafone seems to go through fits and spurts when it comes to how competitively it's priced. It can go from the cheapest on the market, to pretty poor on our mobile phone deals comparison charts. Unfortunately, Vodafone seems to be going through one of its more expensive periods.

We've seen prices across devices rise on Vodafone lately, especially the bigger devices like the iPhone XR and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. However, there are still tonnes of great deals floating around, it just takes more searching and luckily we've done that part for you. 

If Vodafone appeals to you though - or if you want to bag a Red Entertainment package that gives you a year's subscription to Spotify Premium, NOW TV Entertainment or the Sky Sports app - then that's where this page comes in! We've rounded up all of the best Vodafone phone deals so that you don't have to, just take a look at TechRadar's bespoke comparison chart below.

Best iPhone XS and X deals on Vodafone

Oh gosh, Apple went and did it. After years upon years of incremental upgrades, it finally made something special to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the iPhone.

The best iPhone 8 deals on Vodafone

Thanks to the spectacle that was the iPhone X launch, the reception for the iPhone 8 was a little bit flat. Perhaps unfairly - it improves on the iPhone 7 with wireless charging and an improved camera. Plus, it's quite a bit cheaper. So if you're looking for the best iPhone but balk at the iPhone X expense, try the 8 on for size instead.

iPhone 8 64GB | FREE upfront | 30GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £34pm
This is currently one of the cheapest ways to get the iPhone 8. With such brilliant monthly costs of £24 it's hard not to say yes to this deal. Yes, you do have to pay a bit more upfront but we think its worthwhile for both the good data and monthly costs. Especially considering this deal has dropped in price a few times to reach this point. Total cost over 24 months is £665

FAQ on Vodafone deals

What are the benefits of Vodafone?

With 4G coverage of roughly 95% of the UK population, Vodafone won't let you down when it comes to connection. Sign up for a Vodafone red entertainment plan and you can get access to the likes of Now TV, MTV and Sky Atlantic.

No matter the plan you're on, you will be able to use Vodafone's Veryme rewards scheme. This will occasionally give you access to free coffees and snacks, giveaways and discounts.

Can I keep my number when I switch to Vodafone?

If you switch over to a Vodafone deal but want to keep your old number, then simply give your old network a ring, get a PAC code and transition it over. 

If you were previously with Vodafone, you can still keep your number but it is a slightly trickier affair. They won't let you keep your number, so you have to use this workaround. Buy a free pay-as-you-go SIM from any other network and tell your network that you're moving. 

They'll release the PAC code, which you then give to the substitute network. Then, you immediately get another PAC code from them. Take that to your old network, and they'll move your number to your new contract. Long winded, but easier than learning a new number!

Can I use my Vodafone device abroad?

With any Vodafone deal you can use your data allowances without any additional costs while travelling within Europe. That includes locations such as French Guiana, St Martin and Martinique. 

When travelling outside of Europe your costs with a Vodafone deal will jump up. Anywhere outside of Europe is a 'roam-further destination', this means you will be charged £6 a day to use your data.

However, get a Vodafone red entertainment plan and you will get to use roaming for free anywhere in the world.
