How do I use the Premium Service?

For other services like downloading polyphonic ringtones, wallpapers, and Java games, you first need your phone to be configured for WAP. Not all Fones are compatible and therefore you need to check with Vodafone if your handset supports the content you wish to download. Simply call our Customer Care by calling our toll free line on 125 (for Postpay) and 124 (for Prepay).
How do I know if my phone is compatible?
Almost all phones support Txt (SMS), however for WAP services, any GPRS supported handset is compatible. To find out if your phone is a GPRS supported handset, simply check with our Customer Care by calling our toll free line on 125 (for Postpay) and 124 (for Prepay).

It will appear as a normal SMS Text on your bill printout but under call type it will be shown as MC (Mobile Commerce).
Can I access all services on my phone?
No, not all handsets support all services. Some handsets are compatible with either, games, ringtones or wallpapers only. The best thing to do is to check with Vodafone or with the content providers.
What do I need to do first if I want to use WAP services?
Call our Customer Care by calling our toll free line on 125 (for Postpay) and 124 (for Prepay). They will help you set up your phone. Alternatively ask them to send either the OTA or OMA settings to your phone. Upon receiving the settings you will need to save it then you are ready to start accessing WAP services.

What happens if I use the service before my Phone is setup?

Will I be charged for downloads that were not successful?
