Got a question about topping up?

You can top-up in several different ways:

  • Top-up by using your free online account! Simply register or log in to your account and click 'top up' on your overview page.

If you're having trouble, double check that your phone number is linked to your account by clicking 'link number to my account' from the navigation menu.
  • Top-up card - you load your balance at the checkout in one of our stores or any other store that displays a top-up logo. After topping, up you can then use our standard rate or purchase bundles.
  • Debit / credit card - Call 2732 from your Asda mobile to register your credit or debit card details to top-up over the phone.

Please do not purchase a Vodafone top-up voucher, as these will not work on our network.

  • Due to the way our systems work when using data, we will reserve up to 50MB of data per data session.
  • This will mean that your account balance may appear higher than you actually have to use as the reserved data is held for up to 6 hours following the last data session.

Example:

  • If you have a balance of £2.50 and start a data session we will reserve 50MB of data (equivalent of £2 of charges), if you use 1MB of data you will be charged 4p and your balance will show as £2.46, however until the reserved data is released you will only have 50p to use on calls and texts.
  • If you continue to use more data we will use the remainder of the reserved data until this is used up and will again reserve up to 50MB of data.
  • If your account has less than £2 available, we will reserve only the amount available. For example, if you have 50p left, we will reserve that amount. You will not be able to make calls or send SMS if the full remaining balance is released.
  • The easiest way to release an ongoing data session is to put your phone in an airplane mode for a few seconds.
