Vodafone to launch new bill pay plan for smartphone users

16 Mar 2011

Vodafone’s Irish division has launched a new bill pay plan that allows smartphone users on other networks to move to its network without committing to a contract longer than 30 days.

The mobile operator will launch its new Simply Plus plan tomorrow (17 March).

It is designed for smartphone users who love their smartphones, but not their network.

Rolling contract

The new plan includes a 30-day rolling contract that allows users to retain their phone but switch to Vodafone on a plan that provides bill pay users with the flexibility of pay as you use plans.

The plan costs €40 a month and includes unlimited calls and texts to Vodafone mobiles.

The offer ends on 30 April but new users will permanently avail of the plan, the company said.
