Pay as you go FAQs

Most popular

My credit is lower than expected - why? 

If you need to know what your credit has been spent on, you should check your usage in the My Vodafone app. When checking your usage, you should keep an eye out for the following:

  1. Data charges - Check to see if you have gone over the allowance that you have in your monthly top up offer, charges for usage outside of your allowance can be found here. Also, if you are using your phone to tether, or using the hotspot function, make sure you are using the APN as this is the only one covered in your offer allowance. You can check this in your handset settings.
  2. Premium Texts – Some competitions and other services operate on a subscription basis, sending you jokes, sports results or similar content by text message on a regular basis, in exchange for credit. For details on how to unsubscribe from such services and contact information for the content provider, please visit the Comreg website, then enter the 5 digit number the text comes from.

I’m unable to browse certain sites on my phone, what can I do?

To protect our younger customers from accessing sites which may not be appropriate, we use a content filtering system to restrict these sites from being displayed (This may be shown in the address bar as: ‘’). As a Pay as you go customer, you can change the content filtering settings by visiting your local Vodafone store with ID.

My Caller ID doesn’t work

For instructions on how to switch on your Caller ID, visit our Device Guides. Choose your device, go to ‘Basic Use’ and then ‘Making Calls’ and there is an instruction there called ‘Turn your own caller identification on or off’.

If it still doesn’t work, then contact one of our agents on our Community for help.
