Vodafone is a multi-national mobile phone company with headquarters in the United Kingdom.

Vodafone has 107 million, primarily GSM, subscribers in 28 countries. Until 2002, it was the largest mobile phone company in the world; however, it is now the world's second largest after China Mobile[?].

In the United States, Vodafone owns 44% of Verizon Wireless[?], the country's largest mobile carrier. However, the phone company Verizon owns a majority of Verizon Wireless and Vodafone's branding is not used, nor is the network compatible with GSM phones.

Vodafone's logo can be seen on the jerseys of Manchester United players, thanks to its high-profile sponsorship of the soccer team.
