Frequently asked questions

You have the following options for topping up your phone:

My Vodafone app

Download the My Vodafone app to view your balance, top up and manage your plan.


Check your balance online with My Vodafone and top up anytime using our Top up portal

By phone

Dial *#1345# free from your Vodafone Pay as you go phone to see your balance on screen.

Call 2345 free from your Vodafone Pay as you go phone to hear your balance or top up.

If you don't have your Vodafone mobile with you, call the Pay as you go credit line on 03333 048048 from any other UK mobile or landline (standard call charges apply).

By text

Top up over the phone on 2345 free from your Vodafone Pay as you go mobile.

To top up again, text TOPUP to 2345 with the amount you want to add and the last four digits of your payment card - for example, text TOPUP 10 1234 to add £10 using a card ending in 1234.

Top up in store or buy a voucher

You can top up in your nearest Vodafone store at a self-service Top Up kiosk. Or you can buy a pre-loaded voucher and use it to top up online.

Top up automatically

Just download the My Vodafone app and choose Top Up from the main menu, then select Auto Top up.

Alternatively, you can call 18829 free from the Vodafone Pay as you go mobile you want to register and make your initial Top up. Then choose how often you want your Top up to automatically activate - weekly, monthly or every 30 days.

Vodafone Total Rollover lets you keep any unused data, minutes and or texts from your previous Pay as you go bundle, and use them in the next 30-day period.

You'll need to use any allowances that roll over within the next 30 days. Your allowance won't roll over more than once, so you can't save it for longer than 30 days.

You won't be eligible to roll over your allowance if:

  • You renew you Pay as you go bundle early

  • You switch to another Pay as you go bundle

  • Your bundle doesn't automatically renew by the end of day 30 (due to not having enough credit in your account)

To keep your Pay as you go number active, you need to use it for at least one chargeable activity - like sending a text or topping up - every 180 days.

If you don't top up or use any credit for 90 days, we'll send you a text explaining that your account will expire in another 90 days.

To avoid this, simply use your phone for a chargeable activity after you receive the reminder text. This will let you carry on as normal with your current number.

However, if you don't use your phone within that 90-day period, your mobile number will be disconnected and will no longer work.

If you're new to Vodafone, you can buy a Pay as you go Bundle online, or in your nearest store.

If you're an existing Pay as you go customer, you'll need to make sure you have enough credit in your account before you can opt into your chosen bundle. You can opt in by:

  • Calling 4354 free from your Vodafone phone

  • Texting BIGVALUE10, BIGVALUE15, BIGVALUE20, BIGVALUE30 or BIGVALUE40 to 2345, free from your Vodafone Pay as you go phone. You'll need to send the text from the phone you want to add the bundle to.

Please note: Once you've opted in to your Pay as you go Bundle, you'll pay our standard Pay as you go rates if it expires and you don't renew, or if you opt out of your bundle early.

To remove your Pay as you go Bundle (also known as a Big Value Bundle), simply let us know by starting a chat with us, calling 4354 free from your Vodafone mobile, or speaking to an adviser in one of our stores

If you'd like to use your bundle until your current 30-day period is up, you can stop it from auto-renewing using the My Vodafone app. To do this:

  1. Open the My Vodafone app and select the Plan button on the home screen

  2. Then, choose Change plan

  3. You'll be asked to enter and confirm your mobile number - enter this and select Continue

  4. Select the Opt out button underneath your bundle details

  5. We'll text you a security code - enter the text you receive into the Security code box, then select Continue

  6. Select Remove this Big Value Bundle

Once your bundle is removed from your account, you'll lose any remaining data, minutes or texts you had and will start paying our standard Pay as you go rates
