Installing the app

Step 1

Most devices need the Vodafone Mobile Broadband software from your USB modem to be installed before the app will work. If you don’t have the software, follow these steps to install it:

  1. Plug the USB modem into your PC's USB port
  2. Go to your PC desktop view and look for the 'new software detected' notification
  3. Click on this and follow the instructions to start the setup program
  4. If prompted, follow the instructions to install the '.NET Framework’ (needed to run the Vodafone Mobile Broadband software). This is a large install, so it's best to connect to a Wi-Fi or fixed broadband line before downloading
  5. Once the '.NET Framework' has downloaded, continue installing the mobile broadband software

Step 2

Launch the software. It should automatically connect you to the internet but if it doesn’t, click ‘Connect’.

Step 3

Once your modem has established an internet connection, the Vodafone Mobile Broadband app will auto-install from the Windows Store.

You’ll see a popup message advising Vodafone Mobile Broadband was installed and you’ll see a Vodafone Mobile Broadband tile on your Start screen.  The tile shows whether or not your mobile broadband is connected and whether you have any new messages.

Using the app for the first time

Step 1

To open the app, click on the Vodafone Mobile Broadband tile.
