Welcome to Vodafone! You are about to be connected to a online customer service representative for Vodafone UK. Your approximate wait time is 0 minute(s) and 21 seconds. We thank you for your patience and look forward to chatting with you.
You are now connected with Jaimin.
Jaimin: Hello, you're chatting with Jaimin, one of Vodafone's online customer service specialists. May I take your full name and mobile number please?
You: LLOYD CLAYTON ***************
Jaimin: Hi Lloyd
Jaimin: How are you doing today?
You: GOOD. JUST DROPPING IN MY NOW DAILY "WHERE'S MY WIPEOUT CODE" QUERY.
Jaimin: Have you topped up with £5 and registered your account online?
You: I'VE DONE EVERYTHING.
Jaimin: How long has it been since you registered?
You: ALMOST A WEEK.
Jaimin: There are two conditions where you don't get the wipeout code.
Jaimin: 1) You go into a Vodafone store and purchase an individual SIM card
Jaimin: 2) You purchase a Wi-Fi Playstation Vita
Jaimin: Once you've topped up the Vodafone SIM card you'll receive an SMS to your Playstation Vita containing a redeemable code otherwise.
You: I SHOULD HAVE IT THEN.
Jaimin: I see.
You: It took me 4 days to actually successfully top up. My sim got " admin blocked " because I'd tried so often. Finally got that sorted. No code. Twice I got told it was a Sony issue ( I even got put through to Sony ) Sony said it's a Vodafone issue on both occasions. Contacted Vodaphone again. This time I was told to wait 72 hours. I waited 72 hours. Nothing. Called again & got told it was now a tech team issue & it'd be sorted in 48 hours. Guess what ??? Still no code. I don't have any other games for it yet so you can understand my frustration.
Jaimin: Lloyd, I completely understand how frustrating this can be.
Jaimin: What I suggest you do is, talk to our Pay As You Go Specialists directly.
Jaimin: I can connect you to them so this can be sorted out quickly.
You: I've spoken to them already.
Jaimin: I can call you right now, and connect you directly to them for help with this.
You: They just tell me to ring Sony
Jaimin: I see.
Jaimin: I will check your account notes to check the details of your previous interactions for this.
Jaimin: May I confirm your date of birth and the last 2 top up amounts on the account please?
You: Some customers who complain are just getting it sent via email. Can't you do it that way ?
You: ** / ** / **
You: £5 & £5
Jaimin: The pay as you go team may be able to do so, it's just that we don't have access to the required tools here to action that.
Jaimin: Thank you for verifying your details.
Jaimin: One moment please while I check your account for this.
Jaimin: Thanks for waiting.
You: Used to it
Jaimin: I just checked with the account history and went through the previous interactions.
Jaimin: I see that you were informed to contact Sony regarding the code, and I understand that you were not able to get it from them.
You: It's your promotion, not Sonys
Jaimin: Lloyd, I request you to talk to our pay as you go team with this, so this can be looked at further.
Jaimin: They would have the required tools to help you with this.
You: Ok, I'll try them again.
Jaimin: I can call you and connect you to them now, if you wish to talk to them now.
Jaimin: Alright, what number should I call you on?
Jaimin: Thank you.
Jaimin: One moment please.
Jaimin: You are now connected to pay as you go team.

Why don't you get a refund for the Vodafone top up. You paid for it on the basis you'd get a wipeout code - that hasn't happened. Ask for a refund.
With the £10 you've spent on top-ups you can buy Stardust and Motorstorm or something and just get Wipeout later.
EDIT : And load times for Wiepout are worse froma mem card than from a game cartridge anyway, so probabaly better to get it that way.

You should ask to speak to the supervisor and then the manager, tell them ur not waiting for a call back. Also say that you are going to trading standards and citizens advice. You be amazed how most companies get off there backsides then. Hope you get it sorted...
