I just purchased the Vodafone Broadband add-on (bbsurfer which gives 512MB) for my prepaid phone.

But, I cannot find out my remaining mb.  

I tried phoning customer services, but the b****ds want to charge me for that (that should be illegal to charge for customer service). 

I did find that you can use the "my vodafone" website  to find out the balance, but this is rather clumsy, and you are using your miniscule broadband allowance just to find out your broadband balance. 

So, is there some SMS way of getting my remaining data balance?

Not sure how you found this in two seconds. I've gone and taken another look, but i still cannot find out where it says this.

Can you post the link to the page, which describes how to find out the remaining data allowance on prepid plans? I'm curious now.
