This support page will help you understand your email and paper bill.
If you’re receiving a bill for the first time, your plan is charged one month in advance, which means you’ll receive your first bill within a few weeks after connection.
Each month we can email your bill to you rather than receiving a paper copy. You can sign up for an email bill through My Vodafone.
The first page of your paper bill gives information about your account, how much is due, when and how to pay.
Here’s an explanation of terms that might appear on your bill.
