How To Buy All Network Minutes On Telkom?
Here’s a simple and detailed step-by-step guide on how to buy all network minutes on Telkom, tailored for anyone to easily understand:
Step 1: Access Your Phone’s Dialer
- Start by opening the phone app on your mobile device. This is the app you usually use to make calls. Its icon typically looks like a phone or receiver.
Step 2: Dial the USSD Code
- On your phone’s keypad, type in
*180#. This is a special code that Telkom uses for its services, kind of like a shortcut to access various options without needing to navigate through a lot of menus.
Step 3: Initiate the Request
- Press the call button, just like you would when making a phone call. This sends the USSD code to Telkom and tells them you’re looking to do something specific, in this case, buy minutes.
Step 4: Follow the On-Screen Prompts
- After a moment, you’ll see a menu pop up on your screen. This isn’t a call, but rather a text menu. Read through the options carefully. They are instructions from Telkom asking what you want to do.
- Use your phone’s keypad to select the option related to buying all network minutes. This might involve pressing a number associated with purchasing or buying minutes.
Step 5: Choose Your Bundle
- Once you’ve selected the option to buy minutes, Telkom will present you with different bundles or packages of minutes. These could vary in the amount of time they offer and the price. Consider what you need: How many minutes do you think you’ll use? How much are you willing to spend?
- Select the bundle that suits your needs by typing the corresponding number and pressing send or ok.
Step 6: Confirm Your Purchase
- After selecting your bundle, you might be asked to confirm your purchase. This is like the “Are you sure?” message you get before deleting something important. If everything looks right, confirm your purchase by following the prompt, which usually means pressing a certain number or responding with a ‘Yes’.
Step 7: Wait for Confirmation
- Once you’ve confirmed your purchase, all you have to do is wait a bit. Telkom will send you an SMS, a text message, confirming that your purchase was successful. This message will tell you that you’ve successfully bought the all network minutes and will include details like how many minutes you now have and how long they’re valid for.
Step 8: Start Calling
- That’s it! You can now start making calls to any network using the minutes you just bought. Enjoy staying connected with your friends and family across all networks without worrying about running out of minutes.
- Check for Updates: The USSD code and the process might change, so it’s a good idea to check Telkom’s official website or contact their customer service if you encounter any issues.
- Keep an Eye on Your Balance: You can usually check your minute balance by dialing a similar USSD code. Keeping track of your balance helps you know when it’s time to buy more minutes.
- Budget Wisely: Choose a bundle that matches your calling needs and budget. It’s better to start with a smaller bundle to gauge your usage before committing to a larger, more expensive package.
