Top up on the International plan

Top up £10 each month on the International plan and, on top of your credit, we'll give you 70 free international minutes from the UK to use the following month.

What happens when I top up?

When you top up you'll get your free international minutes then, but as soon as you join International plan, you'll get always-low rates on calls from the UK to over 60 popular countries - however much you top up.

We'll send you a free text to let you know you've topped up enough to get your minutes. Also, towards the end of the month, if you haven't topped up enough to get them, we'll send you a free reminder text to let you know that you still have time to top up.

How do I use my international minutes?

You can use you minutes to call any countries detailed in the what it costs brochure. And remember, even when you've used your free minutes, you'll still get always-low rates to those countries.

Any minutes you don't use will expire at midnight on the last day of the month - they won't roll over. But don't worry, as long as you've topped up £10 in that month, you'll get your free minutes again the next month.

How do I switch to the International plan?

If you're an existing pay as you go customer, you can switch to this plan. However, you should remember that:

  • you won't be able to go back to your current plan after you've changed
  • you'll lose any top up reward you're currently entitled to and won't be able to get it back
  • you'll lose any UK talk or text Boosters currently on your account and won't be able to get them back

How do I switch from the International plan?

If you switch from International plan to BlackBerry, Talk or Text plans you'll lose your free minutes, but if you've already topped up £10 you'll get the free stuff from your new plan the following month.
