Customer reviews and ratings

Vodafone R206 Pay As You Go MiFi - White. 3.9 5 27 27
This is a fantastic, quick and easy product! I absolutely love my new Vodafone wi-fi box because firstly, it is fast and reliable, secondly, it was quick and easy to set-up and thirdly, it is portable (which I love) and you can take it anywhere at any time and the connection will still be at the best signal possible. I definitely recommend this product because it has not just changed the way I browse, but it has changed the speed altogether. 15 August 2014
excellent choice I purchased one of good broadband product in market. 12 August 2014
Great Gadget !! Wow I think this is a wonderful item !!! I have just bought a Kindle Fire and wanted to get online as well as just reading , I was browsing Argos on line and spotted this and it as just what I wanted , and it works lovely !! it's easy to set up and the speed is not bad as well . 07 August 2014
Good Broadband Solution / Poor Battery Compact, portable, free from wires, and no long-term contracts make this a flexible broadband option. These are the down-sides: 1) the battery life is short, having just a regular phone battery - a more meaty one would be far more use; 2) the vodafone online interface (which is used to set up, check status, etc.) won't win any design awards, although set up was easy enough; 3) the top-up credits only last 30 days. A better solution for the customer would be to allow unused credit to rollover. 22 July 2014
easy to set up The hardest part of getting online with this unit was getting the back off the case to insert sim card. Once switched on everything is simple. Speed and coverage are great, usually fast enough for video streaming. Battery life not brilliant but good for a few hours browsing between charges and can be used whilst charging. Topping up is not too much drama as long as you set up a Vodafone account, easier to phone 191 customer services the first time but after that the links are easy to follow. 08 July 2014

Answer: 
Hi Mememe,

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that the R206 is not restricted in any way, therefore it depends on the TV as some TV?s won?t allow access to these devices.

Thanks for using Q&A.

Answer: 
Hello there,

You can top up on a Vodafone through this link.
You can top up on the Vodafone website immediately, in a Vodafone store or buy a TopUp voucher from any of 90,000 shops across the UK - where you see the green TopUp logo. Then log in to My Vodafone to apply the voucher to your account and convert the credit into a data pack.

I hope this helps,
Thank you for using Argos Q&A

Hi,

We are not able to guarantee that the Vodafone R206 Pay As You Go MiFi will work in Spain as it has been designed for use in the UK. A manual for this product will be included.
