You will need to set up a 4 digit Recharge PIN. You will receive a message if your credit/debit card details are not stored.  If they aren’t stored, you can find out how to here.
  2. Once you’re sure your credit /debit card details are registered, and you have your 4 digit Recharge PIN, check when your next recharge is due to expire by accessing #111# or from your mobile and select the option to check your balance.
  3. Sign up for Auto Recharge! Dial #111# from your handset or access through your browser

What happens when my credit/debit card expires or I change my credit/debit card?

What happens if the date selected for my Auto Recharge doesn’t occur during a given month?

If at any point the date you’ve selected isn’t available during a given month then we will recharge your service on the last day of that month. For example, February only has 28/29 days but you’ve selected to recharge your service on the 30th of every month, we’ll recharge your service on the 28th (29th if it’s a leap year) instead.
