    My son has a £9 a month contract which has been going several months.

    This month he has a bill for £250 for sending too many long text. This is taking advantage of children – not playing fair.

    I want to escalate this. Being offered a goodwill £10 off the bill and then having the operator say “It was a pleasure chatting with you!” (was he actually in the conversation or do operators say that after all calls – it was not a pleasure on my part and for him to say that shows a complete lack of respect for me).

    How to I escalate this – a £250 charge on a child’s phone is not blatantly taking advantage of those too young to know better.

    How do I escalate this!

      Hi Jackie,
      Sorry to hear about the surprise bill from Vodafone. You can escalate the issue by making a formal complaint. Vodafone should then assign a person to manage your complaint.
      Best of luck,

      Hi Paul,
      Thanks for your comment. If your handset is switched off, my guess is there might be some subscription-based services active on your account (e.g. do you receive ringtones or any other premium rate text messages?) If you’re not sure what’s causing the charges, I’d recommend getting in touch with Vodafone Customer Services. They should be able to tell you where the charges are coming from and how you’re able to unsubscribe to the services.
