Is there a TXT feature I can use to get a Pre-paid balance?

 

It used to be TXT "bal" to 333, and now Spark website says call *333.

I'd like to know how you get the prepay balance expiry date.

Have you tried texting bal to 333, I just did and got a "Sorry this service is for prepaid users" message, I am on pay monthly so it appears it is still active......

Indeed ... I usually just make a note of when my last Top Up was and ensure I do it again within 364 days.  You can also check that online under MySpark and clicking Recent Transactions, but I agree that a simple TXT check would be nice.

Thanx.  That's how I've been doing it   but it used to be there once and  Skinny and 2D  gives this info  on their app or login page..  Not sure about Vodafone these days..

Yes, I have ... it appears to go through but my sent notification has an ! (exclamation point) alert alongside it, and no response from the telco.

 

The Spark website no longer specifically refers to TXT balances, just phone calls or use of their app.
