First of all, to check how much credit you have left on your sim card, type *100# into your phone and press call. Or call 22 9 22 (free of charge).
To check how much data and credit you have left, you can also download the “MeinVodafone”-App from the AppStore.
In case you have already bought a cash voucher (CallNow cards), you need to enter the code in order to transfer the credit onto your SIM card. Just press these buttons: * 100 * [your voucher code] # and press “dial”.
If you want to go the more convenient way and purchase credit online, continue reading or watch our video:
To put any amount into your SIM card, you need to go to www.vodafone.de/, and move your cursor to “Mobilfunk”, and then click on “CallYa-Karte aufladen” and then on “Jetzt aufladen” or “Direkt-Aufladung”.
Once you are there, click on the amount you want to buy (5€, 15€, 25€ or 50€) (“Ich lad jetzt auf”).
You will get to a page where you will be able to type in your Vodafone phone number that you can see on the card that I sent you. Insert your phone number into the field “Auf dieses CallYa-Konto aufladen”:
On the next page you will be asked to provide your email address for your order confirmation, which you will receive once you completed the order process.
You will get to the next page where you can select the payment option. You can choose between credit card (VISA, Mastercard or American Express), Paypal or Sofortüberweisung (a German payment service that you can use if you have German online banking).
Click on the method you want to use. If you don’t have a German bank account, you should choose Paypal or credit card. I will show you the example for Paypal. You will get to the final step, which looks like this:
When everything is correct, click on “Ich bestelle verbindlich” and – in this case – you will be directed to the PayPal page where you can finish the process (or your credit card will be charged). Once you finished the process, you will see the confirmation screen:
The credit will be put on your SIM card and you can use it within minutes. I would recommend putting in the SIM card in Germany, as some costs might incur when you are in a foreign country. You should also receive a confirmation SMS and a confirmation email.
Can I check if I would like to have my data topped up instead of the credit top-up, what should I do?
Looking forward to your reply!
I have done a top up of 15EUR through PayPal. I see only 14.72EUR in MeinVodafone app. I could not understand why its not showing 15EUR in full. Please help.
There could be different reasons, maybe you activated iMessage? Please reach out to the Vodafone customer service, they can investigate.
Can you help please. I wish to cancel the auto top up from my bank account, but cannot work out how to do it.
Hi, thanks for the info. I am currently using Vodafone CallYa Allnet Flat L and currently nearing the end of the first 4 weeks. Do I top up normally as instructed here? And can I change to a lower plan like CallYa Allnet Flat S or CallYa Start? Thank you
Thank you for this — I’ve been using recharge.com but decided to try directly with Vodafone — couldn’t have managed it without your step by step vid.
Thank you Kathy, we are glad it was helpful!
I bought minutes at lidl but all i have is a receipt. Now what!
Please read the instructions on your receipt carefully. They explain how to top up the SIM card step by step.
First of all my name is Osman
I want a credit for my Vodafone
Sim card for ten euro
Thank you! But now that I have purchased credit for my phone, I’d like to see all the ways I can top up my data. For example, I know if I text “day” to vodafone, it is 10GB for 1 day for 4.99 Euros. How do I see what the other data options are? I cannot find them online and would like to use my credit to get more data for 7 more days. Thank you!
find the codes to the other extra options here.
Is it possible to recharge with ussd code and payment information ?
What do these credits get you? I accidently recharged with 15€ instead of my plan and I don’t know what it offers in terms of data and minutes. My app doesn’t provide info it seems.
If you don’t need the 15€ this month, you can just use them for the next month for your regular monthly fee.
