The vectone and it’s sister company delight mobile offers roaming from 1p in certain countries.I feel that their offers are better than other players in this market.Please read other threads on vectone roaming issues.
It is not easy to use this roaming facility without setting your sim manually.The incoming calls start from 1p a minute in India,USA,Canada and few countries in Europe.The outgoing calls back to UK with smart roaming facility starts from 13pence/minute.
The customers need to follow the instructions to set up the roaming at concessional rates.Please follow the link for roaming set up on vectone and delight mobile
For outgoing calls please follow the smart roaming steps as explained on the network website.

They are leader in communication world but when it comes to customer they are top in the worst customer services.The Vodafone mobile signal tower is down in my area for more than 3 days and they are not releasing anydetailed information .When i asked can you divert my mobile calls to other pay as you go sim which i was forced to buy due to your failure they said we can’t do and there is a charge for that.
In response to my complaint they left voice message on mobille phone instead of landline although they knew that i can’t get signal. The customer services are robots trained by vodafone head office and in reality they don’t do any thing .
Why charge on poor customer when the fault is with vodafone .The only sin is that we pay full line rental and they can do whatever they want.Why it is taking long to fix the tower ? The another excuse was it takes to source the replacement parts for the tower .This means that are aware of delays and delivery date of faulty vodafone tower part.
Vodafone prefers to avoid UK corporation tax but now they have started avoiding their UK customers too! The vodafone mobile is no longer a mobile sim now.What is the point of calling it a mobile company when they can’t repair the sites on time .They must explain the reason for this fault as it is now more than 3 days .
I would suggest using O2,lyca, vectone instead of this vodafone .When O2 had a fault it was sorted in one day but vodafone is either trying to save money by outsourcing repairs or they just want to shut their sites.
Their repair timings are evident from vodafone website which is anything from days to weeks.Think twice before you join vodafone.
Vodafone UK Signal issues
http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Faults-Board/SITE-34050-IG6-BARKING-ILFORD-SITE-DOWN/m-p/860459#M1217 vodafone site down since 15/9/11
Vodafone Answer: We don’t give fault free service and we can’t give you any resolution times.We don’t divert the calls although network is down for more than 3 days.
It is evident from vodafone forums that there is no timescale on resolution for any of the faults known to vodafone mobile network .
Another provider Dialogvizz has launched India Mobile & landline at 0.5pence per minute direct from UK mobile sim.
callingcredit- still unbeatable for India Mobiles 1/2 pence /0.5pence to India Mobiles.
Good deal if you have got free uk landline minutes.
