Buying airtime vouchers for prepaid mobile phones is easy; all you have to do is go into a store that sells them and they will give you a slip containing the voucher number. It doesn’t matter whether you are with the Vodacom, MTN, Cell C or Virgin Mobile network, most stores sell airtime for them all. Some stores are selling at more affordable prices, like PEP Stores for example who normally sell theirs for R1 or R2 less than what it can cost elsewhere. You can also buy for your Telkom phone if you need to talk on the landline instead of on your mobile.
With MTN airtime vouchers for prepaid mobile phones you sometimes receive free minutes. Or you can use your MTN loyalty points to buy airtime straight from your mobile. Cell C and Vodacom do not offer loyalty points, but they do have their own calling benefits. On your Telkom phone, and on your mobile, a recorded voice will tell you when you only have a few minutes remaining to talk, and then you will have to top-up again. Airtime is more affordable and worth a lot more if you make calls and send SMS’s during the off-peak times which are normally at night.
Having a prepaid landline and mobile phone is better than having a contract where you have no idea what your bill is going to look like at the end of the month. When you are prepaid, you know that you cannot use your phone unless you have airtime, where as with a contract you will just use your phone over and over again and you get a bill at the end of the month that you have to pay. Airtime vouchers for prepaid mobile phones are more convenient for you to use and they are available in high quantities, like vouchers containing over R100 worth.
