    What happened takes place like this:

    • Me and a friend got contract phones on same day
    • We used his address for both contracts so they are both in his name (so my bills etc. all go to his address but money comes out from my account)
    • Went fine for a while, money came out of my account each month as planned
    • Got to stage where didn't have the money for it
    • Found out my girlfriend's sister wanted a contract phone
    • I filled out a "Change of Ownership" form
    • Put my girlfriend's sister's bank details etc. on the form as the new owner
    • Sent away form and heard nothing back so paid couple of the further months on the contract although I was not using the phone at all
    • Gave my girlfriend's sister sim card so she could start using it
    • About three or four months passed and I got a text today from my friend whom my contract is under, and it said "Seems your contract has been cancelled. You or your friend [my girlfriend's sister] owes £389.32 to Vodafone"
    I am really angry, confused and panicking a bit at the moment. I mean I sent the form and its been ages, I just assumed it all went smoothly and my girlfriends sister was getting charged and I would have nothing to do with it anymore.

    Does anyone know what I should do? Any suggestions or advice VERY much appreciated.

    P.S. The contract is with Vodafone, and since I am being honest...I have no clue where the actual contract is (think it is in my house somewhere, but not seen it in a long time)

    Thanks again!

    Where you paying the bill between the period you got the letter and the time you originally changed the owner of the sim?
