A common mistake that people make is connecting to the internet without first buying data bundles. When you use your airtime to go online, you pay out-of-bundle rates, which are much higher than in-bundle rates.
Data bundles give you a set amount of data for a fixed price – meaning you can save money and know exactly how much you are spending.
As a prepaid customer, you can convert your existing airtime balance to data bundles in a number of ways. Here's how:
Download the My Vodacom app. Once you've download the app and logged in, simply click 'buy data bundles' and follow the onscreen instructions.
You can also log in to My Vodacom on your computer. Once you've logged in, select 'buy bundles' and follow the prompts.
Dial *135# on your phone and follow the menu prompts to buy bundles.
Please note: If you’re on prepaid, the amount will be deducted from your airtime. If you’re a contract customer, the amount will be added to your monthly bill.
