Prepaid Extras Central


Prepaid Extras gives you the ability to stay on the go until you top up the next time. You can have as many Extras as you like and you can buy them anytime.

Buy and manage your Prepaid Extras all at the touch of your finger tips:

Once you have purchased your Extra you can start using it immediately. Prepaid Extras are valid for a specific time (depending on the Extra) from when you first purchase e.g 1 month. Any unused minutes,data or texts will expire when your Extra renews. Don't worry we will send you a text message letting you know your Extra is about to expire.

If you don't have enough credit when your Extra renews, don't worry. We will put it on hold for 5 days giving you enough time to top up and keep your Extra. But it is important to know that your original renewal date will stay the same (for example if you purchased your Extra on 21 October and did not have enough credit for it to automatically renewal on 22 November but you top up on 25 November your Extra next renewal date will be 22 December). So to make the most of your Extra we strongly encourage you to top up before your renewal date. If you don't top up after 5 days you Extra will be cancelled and you'll need to purchase it again when you top up again.

How to Manage

Using Extras

New Extras are managed on a subscription basis. When you sign up you pay an initial fee. Then each following month the charge for that Extra is added to your bill.

New Extras are valid for a set period if time; previously Extras expired at the end of a billing month.  For example a monthly Extra would be valid, from the date of purchase or renewal to the same day the following month; bought on the 5th of one month, expiry on 5th the following month.

if you don't have enough money when your Extra renews
it will be on hold for 5 days
if you don't top up then your Extra will be cancelled

Once your Extra included minutes, text or data has been used, you will start to be charged the casual rate, until you purchase another Extra.
