You don't need to register! All you need to do is top up and wait. Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying.

I kept on getting temporary problem rubbish too.

 

The actual part that was messing me up was FIND ADDRESS after I entered my Postcode I had to enter my address manually.

 

And I never registered either I might in the future for conveience sake Oh yeah got my Wipeout code earlier today after topping up last night :) sweet deal

Lying is a harsh word to be using. I'm sure everyone here at one time or other as given information that isn't correct in the course of trying to help someone out. There is a lot of confusion regards setting up and using various features on the Vita. Different people seem to be taking different combination of steps some of which may not be neccessary. That doesn't mean they're lying.

Don't register the sim right away.

 

  1. Go on Vita > Network > Turn off Wi-fi
  2. When a 3G signal with Vodafone is established, go to the Network settings App.
  3. Click the Vodafone icon and wait for their website to load NOTE: it has to load through 3G
  4. Go through the top up stages, enter card details and continue. 
  5. Now wait for your WipEout code to arrive
  6. Once you get the game code (could take up to 24 hours) you're now ready to register the sim
  7. visit: https://online.vodafone.co.uk/dispatch/Portal/appmanager/vodafone/wrp?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=Page_Reg...
  8. Code should be recieved, continue the steps on vodafone website
  9. Done

 

FINAL NOTE: My friend and I both recieved a problem on getting past the payment details because of the 'card type' we both had Visa Electronics but when we tried to continue it wouldn't, just say its a Visa card instead.

I had this error too. I phoned up Vodafone and the guy said that I had an old sim card and that it should have self-activated and therefore it must be faulty. He blamed Amazon for including it with the Vita and said that I would have to go back to them.

 

I then tried turning off the mobile network in settings and back on again. The website then loaded fine (apart from the visa/visa electron problem) and I was able to top-up. Now just to wait for my wipeout code.

just thought I would add a bit more information on this thread.

 

Now I am in the position my  vita is fully working with vodafone with the sim that came with it and I have a top up balance of £10 and I have registered my account at vodafone with a credit card registered.

 

(oh man)

 

However this morning I thought I would top up again online using my registered vodafone website account by another £5 (just to get to £15 lto test the process again not because I had ran out of credit).

 

However this morning when I try to top up online using my registered credit card from either my laptop or the vita I get

 

 

 

vodafone will be first against the wall come the revolution brothers

 

 

 By the way if you read the error message above even that is confusing

 

is there some details missing ?

or

is there a web site problem ?

 

 

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

 

Sony please escalate it with these idiots of computer programmers at vodafone.

I had this problem too. But switching off the WiFi and connecting with 3G worked.

 

The little addition I'd make to the instructions is: The APN isn't always selected as Vodafone UK. I needed to go into the the settings (to the right of the Vodafone icon) and manually change it.

 

It worked for me and the code arrived around 90 mins later

I was getting the exact same error when entering  Visa Electron as my card type. Changed it to Visa even though my card was a visa electron but it worked anyway.

I would really like to thank you sir. The key was to turn off wifi and do the top up then through the vita, and you enter the web page as vita.vodafone.com

 

I have been struggling with this for hours over 2 days. MODS I SUGGEST YOU STICKY THESE INSTRUCTIONS!!

 

It looks like vodafone.co.uk has a security feature that you need to top up the vita sim only though itself through 3G with any wifi connection disabled. When you go to vodafone.co.uk through wifi using your vita or your laptop you cant for the first one. (lets up subsequent top ups are easier)
