Can I still get Mates exclusive Add-Ons?

Yes, if you’re already on a Mates plan you can still get the exclusive 1GB Add-Ons that are available for a set period of time of the day from just $3 – use your My Vodafone app to see what Add-Ons are available to you.

Night Cap can only be used the day you buy it. Morning Hit can be used on the day you buy it or the next day depending on the purchase time and data amount used and All Nighter can be used from 10pm-7am and the next 10pm-12am depending on the data amount used.

To use an Add-On you have to have a working Vodafone Mates Prepay plan and Vodafone Mates Add-On Terms and Vodafone Mates Terms apply.

I’ve run out of data before the end of the month, what do I do?

No sweat, you can redesign or renew your plan at any time before the month is finished in My Vodafone. This is a great option if you’ve got the spare coin and want maximum value. It’s important to know that any remaining minutes or data in your month’s bundle can’t be carried over into this new bundle though.
Don’t want to renew just yet? Check out our great Add-Ons and casual rates that will keep you connected with your mates. Just go to ‘Plans and Add-Ons’ in My Vodafone to pick the right one for you. Don’t forget to check out our Daily Deals too.

I can’t get into My Vodafone, what do I do?

Just go to the My Vodafone login page and use the 'Forgotten Password' feature. As long as you have your mobile handy, we can reset your Online ID in no time.

We know passwords can be tricky but your password can only be reset three times within 24 hours. After this, we have to lock your account. If your account gets locked, give us a call on 777.
