Important things to know

  • You will need to activate your International Plan SIM prior to use.
  • As part of this plan, you get access to special calling and text rates to selected international countries that are always available. This means that these rates don’t expire and as long as you have credit you can take advantage of these special rates
  • Plus every time you top up $20 or more in one go you get a bonus (Data and NZ TXTs), and also keep your credit to use however you choose. The bonus allowance you get is determined by the amount you top up by, however each bonus will include specified data and TXT allowances.
  • You cannot purchase offers or Add-Ons from other Vodafone Prepay plans e.g. BestMate or Prepay $19 etc. See list of available Add-Ons below.
  • You can only have one bonus at a time, so when you top up any new bonus will replace the remainder of your existing bonus. If you don't top up within 30 days your current bonus will expire. Bonuses are non-transferable between plans.
  • Bonus TXTs are to standard New Zealand mobile numbers only and exclude special, premium and international numbers. Unlimited TXTs are intended to be used for personal TXTs to standard NZ numbers. However, unlimited TXTs are not for you if you plan to use them in any of the following ways:
      - Unlimited TXTs are not for re-selling or using for commercial gain, auto-dialling, machine to machine communications (including by using your SIM card in any other device) or any other activity that might not be viewed as ordinary personal usage.
    If in our reasonable opinion we consider your usage breaches these terms, falls outside the intended use, or is fraudulent or unlawful, we may immediately suspend or restrict your use of the services without notice to you. For overseas TXTing and non standard TXTs like premium TXTs and fundraising shortcodes, standard rates apply.
  • If you use up all of your bonus or if it expires and you do not top up again, standard rates apply. See full casual pricing details below.
  • To check your data and TXT balance, Sign in to My Vodafone or freeTXT MYADDON to 756.
  • If you switch plans you will lose any bonus or Add-Ons you may have.
  • A $5 plan change fee will apply for customers choosing to move to any other Vodafone Prepay plans.
  • For charging purposes, calls are rounded up to the next minute. For example, if your call is one minute and 40 seconds, you will be charged for two minutes.
  • Any of the following services will be charged at the usual rates, and deducted from your Prepay balance:
      - PXT
      - International numbers
      - Special or premium numbers (e.g. 0900)
      - Voice services (e.g. 018, voicemail)
