Hi,

 

I currently have a prepaid sim on the "Smart plan". I was looking into the mobile broadband prepaid plans and the $80 for 6 months/5GB looks interesting but in MyVodafone I can't seem to find it, only to Freebies* and 19/29.

 

 

Also, if I convert my sim to a mobile broadband plan, will I still be able to use it for voice/sms?

 

 

Thanks.

IIRC once a number is converted to Prepay Data it can't be used for txts or calls, and can't be changed back. Your local store or Customer Services (777) should be able to change it for you, I'm reasonably sure (but not 100%) that it's one of the options Reps can change it to.

Edit: corrected by the mighty johnr

This is incorrect
