Useful things to know

  • If you have zero credit you can still call 111, Vodafone customer service on 777, receive calls for 365 days after your last Top Up and use any Add-Ons with allowance still remaining.
  • You will need to have at least 1 cent balance to be able to call 0800 or 0508 Free call number.
  • If your credit is less than $5 you'll get a "low balance" TXT to remind you Top Up. You'll get this free TXT no matter where in the world you are. To stop getting these TXTs call 777 from your mobile and let us know. If your balance drops below $5 while you are using casual data, your Auto Top Up will not be triggered.
  • If you don't Top Up within the applicable expiry period, you will lose any remaining balance. Additionally, your mobile number will be deactivated and recycled for someone else to use. We'll TXT you to remind you if you need to make a Top Up, so you'll have plenty of notice. Credit expiry varies between plans, see your plan's terms & conditions for details.
  • You must be registered for My Vodafone online to use the My Vodafone iPhone or Android app or on your mobile.
  • For Top Ups, we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Diners Club cards.
  • Vodafone is PCI compliant which means we're able to process, store or transmit credit card information in a secure environment without having to keep your credit card details stored in our system. This is standard banking practice, and complies with the Global Credit Card standard.
