Vodacom My 5 Chat

One of the cheapest rates, even cheaper than Power Hour, the Vodacom My 5 Chat allows a subscriber to set a list of their 5 most frequently called Vodacom numbers and then buy 60 minutes for R6.30 for voice calls. The 60 minutes are available to use until 12 AM the day they were purchased, which is similar to what Power Hour offers you. As with the other voice call minutes on this list, the Vodacom My 5 Chat is best suited for prepaid or TopUp customers.

Why can’t you buy Power Hour?

Vodacom is restrictive with Power Hour, and it might be that your current tariff does not allow you to buy Power Hour or other minutes deals. If you’re on a standard contract or the tariff rate of R0.79 (seventy-nine cents) per minute then you will struggle to find deals if they are available to you.
