The My Vodacom App is one of the essential downloads for this season, giving you more play time and helping you get the most out of summer.

The last thing you want to be worrying about on holiday is your mobile phone bill. When you're out of school or off from work, you're likely to spend more time - which means more data or airtime - on your phone or tablet. And that's great, because we all want more time to connect with our loved ones and social media friends. But it can also mean a higher than usual phone bill.

Well, the My Vodacom App is here to help put your mind at ease. Not only will it spare you unnecessary worry, it is so quick and easy to use that it frees you up to go out and do more of the things that make you happy.

Plus, when you download the My Vodacom App to your iOS or Android device and use it for the first time, we'll send you 1GB of data for FREE within 24 hours! (Terms and conditions apply.)

Here are five of the ways the award-winning My Vodacom App saves you precious time and puts your mind at ease, whether you're a Pre-Paid, Top Up or Contract customer.

Secure log in

Logging into the My Vodacom App is secure and easy. You can request a One Time PIN (OTP) to be sent to your device, type in your password or even use a Voice Password system (if you're on an iOS or Android device).

To activate the Voice Password system, go to your Profile in the App.

Keep an eye on your balances

The My Vodacom App is the simplest way to manage your Vodacom account because it allows you to:


  • Check up on your account balances.   
  • Manage your bundles - check up on whether your recurring bundles are sufficient, or whether you should top up with another Once Off bundle.
  • Receive notifications that alert you when your balances are low.
  • View your invoices, statements and bills to date.
  • Activate Vodacom eBilling to receive your statement on a monthly basis via email.

Shop in a flash

On the My Vodacom App, you can buy data, MMS and SMS bundles in an instant. All you have to do is select the number you want to buy for, the type of bundle, the size of the bundle, and whether you want a recurring bundle (which will automatically be loaded to your device every month) or a once-off bundle (for those times when you need a little boost just for now).

One of the greatest features of the App is that it lets you buy data and airtime bundles for other numbers, so you can gift them to your partner, parents, children or friends.

Watch this video to find out how.

Send free SMSs

Yep, that's right. You can send up to 20 SMSs Vodacom-to-Vodacom, totally free of charge every day, from the My Vodacom App.

You can even schedule them to be sent at a later date, if you like - for example, to say to your friends, 'Yay, we made it!' on the day that school breaks up.

You'll find the details on how to use the FREE SMS service here.

Super-useful self-service features

Two of the services that the My Vodacom App offers that will undoubtedly save you loads of time are Find Your Nearest Vodacom Outlet, and Find Your PUK. (Your PUK number is the one you'll need to unlock your device when you've put the wrong PIN in three times.)

To find your nearest Vodacom outlet, simply go to the Vodacom Outlets option in the Menu. For more, go here.

And to find out what your PUK number is, select 'My Profile' once you've logged into the App. Select 'Account Details' and you'll see your PUK number will be displayed.

The bottom line is that you just can't afford to be without the My Vodacom App this summer. Download it for your device today » 

Note that while the My Vodacom App is zero rated, and therefore free to use, the data needed to download it is not. Log into the My Vodacom App to top up with a data bundle »
