Bought prepay smart 25 for wife ... now travelling and coming back at a certain date.

Wife wants to have lots of data so will sign her for smart 45 plan but needs to be active upon arrival back.  

If we go into the my vodafone on the website and click sign up for smart 45 i assume you can choose 1 month term etc ... once you click all the clicks how long before you are on the plan?

eg immediately vs 24 hrs vs 48 hrs??

thanks.    

(otherwise when she arrives home there is zero money in the prepay and she'll be stuck)

I can speed up the process of mobile data working but need to be in the office to delete the MSISDN from DR

i know, i know, should've rang in, but thought it was easier to give details online ...

anyway went online and attempted to convert prepay to on account smart 45.

it confirms the "order" and that if i had ordered anything it will arrive in 3 days ... erm i hope there is nothing to arrive because i really want to plug in the current sim card and keep going onto on account ... right?

When I changed from Texter 60 to Smart 45, I went into one of their stores. It took 5 mins, activated almost imediatley when we got out of the store!

Going from Postpay to Prepay does not require credit checks
