HOW THE SERVICE WORKS

1. Bundle Transfer allows Vodacom customers to send SMS, MMS and Data Bundles to other Vodacom customers.

2. Bundle Transfer is a transfer of airtime from the transferring customer that is immediately converted into a bundle for the receiving customer.

3. The airtime amount a customer may transfer for Bundle Transfer is limited to the SMS, MMS and Data bundles on offer via the MyPhone Service from time to time, and is not restricted to a minimum airtime amount.

4. The Bundle Transfer Service can also be used between customers who do not belong to the same Service Provider.

5. Bundle Transfer is a free service.

6. The transferring customer will receive a confirmation SMS once the transaction has been completed successfully. The SMS will state the bundle type, size and the cost of the bundle, and the transferring customer’s cell phone number.

7. The receiving customer will receive an SMS stating the bundle type, size that has been transferred, the validity of the bundle, and the transferring customer’s cell phone number.

8. If a customer attempts a transfer via MyPhone Service when they do not have sufficient funds in their IN account (also referred to as “the wallet”) they will receive a message: “You do not have sufficient funds to allow the transfer. Your transfer limit is RXXXXX.” The limit they are given is the actual transfer limit, i.e. 80% of recharged value.
