What is an upgrade?
As a member of the Mobilities family, the duration of your Contract is 24 months. From month 22 your Contract is due for renewal, allowing you to upgrade your cellphone to a brand new make and model while extending your Contract for another 24 months.
Why should I upgrade?
The main benefit of upgrading is that you receive a new cellphone absolutely FREE (depending on your tariff package and the cellphone or device chosen). When upgrading, you retain your cellphone number, and simply continue with your Contract – no credit checks are needed!
How do I know if I am eligible for an upgrade?
Simply SMS ‘UG’ to 082 812 3000 from your Vodacom cellphone
Send us an email with the cell number you are enquiring about.
Will I be charged to upgrade?
There are a range of cellphones available for FREE on every tariff package. In the event you select a cellphone which is not covered by your tariff package, you will be required to pay in.
A R150 upgrade administration fee is applicable.
