Welcome to Vodafone Community
Need help managing your Pay as you go account? Check out some tips below.
Why has my Pay as you go credit run out when I haven’t made calls or sent texts?
If you’re a Pay as you go customer and just top up your credit rather than buying a Big Value Bundle or Freebie Data, you’ll pay a daily £2 data charge if you use certain apps, access the internet or check your emails. It’ll be taken from your credit if you haven’t switched off data on your phone.
Buying a Freebie Data, a Big Value Bundle or using Pay as you go 1 could save you money. They all come with data allowances and as long as you haven’t used them up, you won’t have to pay any daily data charges. If you’ve downloaded the My Vodafone app and stored your payment card details, you can buy either of these with a couple of taps.
If there are days when you don’t want to use data or buy a Big Value Bundle or Freebie Data, simply switch data off on your phone. If you’re not sure how to, our device guides can show you.
What are Pay as you go Extras?
Pay as you go Extras are useful bundles of data, minutes, texts and other features offering even better value for money than your Pay as you go credit would alone. You could save money chatting to loved ones abroad, or get free calls to friends and family.
And if you do run out of credit, there's even an Extra that lets you text someone to ask if they could call you back.
You can log in to My Vodafone to check or remove your current Extras, or to add new ones. Just select the device they're used on and choose Services and extras.
The following Vodafone Pay as you go extras last for 30 days and renew automatically, providing you have enough credit. To opt out of these extras, text the relevant code to 49500, free from your Vodafone mobile:
