The easy way to keep track

Get an instant overview of your Vodacom account with the My Vodacom Widget for Android.

For a quick overview of your Vodacom account details – including airtime balances, your bill so far, remaining SMSs and data balances – simply add the My Vodacom Widget that suits you to the home screen of your Android device. 

What is the My Vodacom Widget?

In the same way that you can add a weather or Twitter widget to your home screen for immediate access to the current temperature or the latest tweets without having to open the full app, you can add a My Vodacom Widget to help you keep track of your cellphone spend at glance.

The My Vodacom Widget displays your bill so far for the month or your account balances. It's a practical and quick way to check that you aren’t running low on data or airtime. 

Tapping the widget will take you into the full My Vodacom App. Once you’ve logged in, you can manage almost all aspects of your account including recharging airtime, transferring airtime and buying data bundles.

How do I get the My Vodacom Widget?

Download the latest version of the My Vodacom App from the Google Play Store. When you download the app, the widgets will automatically be downloaded at the same time.

How do I add the My Vodacom Widget to my home screen?

Adding the My Vodacom Widget is easy. Here are the simple steps to follow:

  • Scroll to a home screen with empty space to add a widget. Tap and press the screen and select the Widgets option.
  • There are lots of widgets installed on your phone. Scroll to, then tap, the My Vodacom widget you want to add. The widgets come in different sizes.
  • Icons will automatically arrange themselves to make space for the new widget.
  • Widgets can also be repositioned and removed. To move a widget, tap and hold it. Then drag the widget to a new position and release to place it. To remove a widget, tap and hold it. Then drag the widget to the trashcan icon and release it. The widget will be removed.
