Vodafone introduces data rollover… for pay-as-you-go users

Mobile network Vodafone has decided to follow in the footsteps of Sky Mobile and iD, by introducing Data Rollover - but only for pay-as-you-go customers.

Data Rollover is a feature that lets you save any unused data and carry it over to the next month, so you get better value for money.

The network has brought it in for anyone on a pay-as-you-go plan who buys a 'Big Value Bundle' - a one-off bundle of calls, texts, or data that gives you a set allowance to use within 30 days. With Data Rollover, you'll be able to take any data from the bundle you don't use up, and use it the next month instead.

To use it, renew a Big Value Bundle within the 30-day period, and any data you haven't used will automatically be added to your new allowance.

Glafkos Persianis, Vodafone UK's commercial director, said: "We are delighted to be offering yet another industry first to our customers by introducing Data Rollover. Through listening to our customers, we're determined to simplify our products and offer even better value for money."

Sadly, Vodafone has only brought it in for those pay-as-you-go bundles - anyone on a pay-monthly contract will still have to use or lose their data allowance in the month.

At the moment, there are only two other major mobile networks in the UK who let you roll your data over - Sky Mobile lets you store it in a virtual 'piggybank' to use whenever you want, and Carphone Warehouse's iD Mobile has a special GoTo plan.
