Vodafone EVO launches with iPhone 12 and Samsung Galaxy S21 savings

EVO is a unique combination of device financing, trade-in and early upgrades.

Vodafone has launched EVO today, bringing a combination of device financing, trade-in and and upgrading any time from 12 months. Vodafone, unveiled its new flexible mobile offering Vodafone EVO earlier this month, and the launch is offering the latest Apple and Samsung devices at exceptional prices.

With Vodafone EVO, you can save over £275 when purchasing a Samsung Galaxy S21 – with prices starting from £21 per month (£29 upfront) on a 36-month device plan and 24-month airtime plan when trading in a Samsung S10 series device.

Meanwhile, iPhone 12 can be purchased for just £27 per month (£29 upfront cost) on a 36-month device plan and 24-month airtime plan when trading in an iPhone X, XR, XS or XS Max.

EVO also comes with Vodafone’s flexible upgrades, so customers aren’t tied to their device for the full length of their contract, and after 12 months they can trade in to use the value of their current device to help pay it off.

Vodafone is also giving the flexibility of unlimited data to even more customers with its Unlimited Data Booster. With this new feature, unique to Vodafone, customers can activate free unlimited data for a 30-day period, up to six times, on selected plans.

By trading in an eligible device, customers can get their hands on some of the best smartphones on the market with prices starting from:

  • iPhone 12: £27 per month when you trade in an iPhone X, XR, XS or XS Max (£29 upfront cost).
  • Samsung Galaxy S21: £21 per month when you trade in a Galaxy S10 series device (£29 upfront cost).
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max: £41 per month when you trade in an iPhone X, XR, XS or XS Max (£29 upfront cost).
  • iPhone 11: £25 per month when you trade in an iPhone X, XR, XS or XS Max (£29 upfront cost).

EVO presents a major shift for Vodafone customers – following the launch, all smartphones will be sold this way, ensuring customers are always getting the best possible value and flexibility from Vodafone. EVO is set to launch this month for all new and upgrading Vodafone customers.

Max Taylor, Consumer Director, said:

“New Vodafone EVO allows customers to get the smartphone they want at the price they choose. We are setting a new benchmark for flexibility, combining the benefits of device contracts of up to three years, a fantastic trade-in offer and the option to upgrade from one year.”

“We’re putting the customer in charge – we’re giving them flexibility and value, but making sure they don’t have to compromise on quality, with a great network, a great loyalty programme, and great service.”

“To mark the launch of our most flexible offering ever, we’re offering customers the most desired smartphones – at what we think will become market-leading prices.”

As well as providing great value, EVO is packed full of added and unique benefits on selected plans that our customers can take advantage of, including:

  • Battery Refresh – exclusively with Vodafone, EVO customers will not have to worry about a tired battery because we’ll replace it at no extra cost, helping customers keep that new phone feeling for longer. Every phone comes with Battery Refresh included, and customers will be covered for the length of their device plan – that’s up to 36 months.
  • Total Care Warranty – Vodafone covers customers with a two-year warranty on all new devices against any manufacturer faults and repairs, for that extra peace of mind. That even includes Apple devices – one year longer than the manufacturer warranty.
  • Unlimited Data Booster – only Vodafone gives customers the choice of unlimited data every month, or unlimited data just when they need it. With our unique Unlimited Data Booster, customers who don’t already have unlimited data in their plan can boost themselves up to unlimited data for 30 days, up to six times at any point in their contract. This is perfect for those customers who need a data boost for those extra special occasions – including staycations or watching their favourite sporting events on the go.
  • Unlimited picture messaging – unexpected MMS charges are a thing of the past, with unlimited picture messaging included in all plans at no extra cost.
  • Entertainment – customers can enjoy the entertainment they love, straight to their mobile for the length of their plan, with a fantastic choice of Amazon Prime, Spotify Premium or YouTube Premium.
  • VeryMe – the award-winning loyalty programme with weekly treats and giveaways that change to match their interests. Plus, with Vodafone, customers can choose to gift their rewards to family or friends – even if they’re on a different network.
  • Roaming in 81 destinations – customers on selected unlimited data plans can use their plan abroad, when the time is right, at no extra cost in 81 worldwide destinations
  • 5G at no extra cost 
  • 5G Roaming – Vodafone offers 5G roaming, and 5G coverage in more places across Europe than any other network.
  • Those who want a smartphone and smartwatch can save even more – Vodafone EVO is the perfect destination for watch lovers who can enjoy the same great flexibility to get the watch they want at the price they choose, with an additional built-in saving of £3.50 on ‘One Number’ smartwatch connectivity. This means customers can leave their phone at home and still stay connected from their wrist.

The Vodafone brand no longer sells combined handsets and airtime plans. Talkmobile, however, will continue to sell these plans.

Vodafone Together: Vodafone EVO and Pro Broadband

In March this year, Vodafone launched Pro Broadband, offering 4G back-up, Super WiFi, access to Vodafone’s WiFi Xperts team of engineers for problem-solving, free anti-virus and parental control software, and the Faster Fibre Promise, so you know you’ll be upgraded to full FTTP broadband as soon as it’s available on your street.

Together, Pro and EVO make up Vodafone Together. All customers who have a Pro plan and an EVO plan will benefit from the Vodafone Together discount of up to £3 per month.

And for every new and existing Vodafone Together customer, Vodafone will provide a person in need with a SIM card, loaded with 20GB of data plus free calls and texts each month for up to a year. To ensure the connectivity reaches those who need it most, the SIMs will be distributed through the Trussell Trust’s UK network of food bank centres.
