Buying WhatsApp Data on Vodacom for Another Number

There are times when you might want to purchase a WhatsApp data bundle for a friend, family member, or colleague who is also on the Vodacom network. Vodacom provides a convenient way to buy WhatsApp data for another number, ensuring that you can keep your loved ones connected. Here’s how to go about it.

Step 1: Verify the Recipient’s Vodacom Number

Before proceeding with the purchase, make sure you have the correct Vodacom number for the person you’re buying the WhatsApp data for. It’s important to double-check to avoid purchasing data for the wrong number.

Step 2: Check Your Airtime Balance

Ensure that you have enough airtime on your Vodacom account to buy the WhatsApp bundle for the other number. You can check your balance by dialing *136# or by using the My Vodacom app.

Step 3: Purchase WhatsApp Data for Another Number via USSD

To buy WhatsApp data for another Vodacom number using USSD, follow these steps:

  • Dial *135# from your Vodacom mobile phone.
  • Select ‘Buy bundles and services’ from the USSD menu.
  • Choose the option for ‘Data bundles’.
  • Look for an option to ‘Buy for another number’ or ‘Transfer data bundle’. The exact wording may vary, but the functionality will be the same.
  • Enter the recipient’s Vodacom number when prompted.
  • Select ‘Social bundles’ or ‘WhatsApp bundle’ from the next set of options.
  • Choose the appropriate WhatsApp data bundle that you wish to purchase for the other number.
  • Confirm the transaction, and the cost of the WhatsApp bundle will be deducted from your airtime balance.

Step 4: Purchase WhatsApp Data for Another Number Using the My Vodacom App

If you prefer using the My Vodacom app, the process is just as straightforward:

  • Open the My Vodacom app on your smartphone. If you haven’t installed it, you can download it from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
  • Log in with your Vodacom number. If you’re a new user, you’ll need to register for an account.
  • Navigate to the ‘Buy bundles’ section within the app.
  • Select the option to ‘Buy for another number’ or a similar option that allows you to purchase bundles for a different number.
  • Enter the recipient’s Vodacom number.
  • Choose ‘Social bundles’ and then ‘WhatsApp bundle’.
  • Select the desired WhatsApp data bundle for the recipient.
  • Confirm your purchase, and the cost will be deducted from your airtime balance.

Step 5: Confirmation of Bundle Purchase

After the purchase is complete, both you and the recipient should receive an SMS from Vodacom. Your message will confirm that the purchase was successful, and the recipient’s message will notify them that they have received a WhatsApp data bundle from your number.

Step 6: Tips and Considerations

  • Always confirm the recipient’s number before finalizing the purchase to ensure the data goes to the correct person.
  • Be aware of the expiration date of the WhatsApp data bundle to inform the recipient so they can utilize it before it expires.
  • If you encounter any issues during the process, Vodacom customer service can assist. You can reach them by dialing 082 135 from your Vodacom phone or through the support options in the My Vodacom app.

By following these steps, you can easily buy WhatsApp data on Vodacom for another number, helping someone else stay connected without any hassle. This service is particularly useful for parents who want to manage their children’s data usage or for individuals who want to gift data to friends and family.
