All about our Boosters
Running out of data?
At Talkmobile we don’t like unexpectedly high bills. That’s why we send you a text message when you’re close to using up your plan's inclusive allowance of data, and automatically stop your data once you’ve used it all up.
Keep browsing, streaming and sharing with a data Booster
If you want to keep on browsing, you’ll need a data Booster. For a one off payment, a data Booster gives you a bundle of extra data to use for 7 days. They’re available on all of our Talkmobile “MyPlans” (Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large) or “MySIMO” (Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large) plans.
Not sure what plan you’re on? It’s easy to check, just login to My Account at myaccount.talkmobile.co.uk
What about minutes?
We will still send you a text message when you’re close to using up your plan's inclusive allowance of minutes but unlike data, we won’t stop you making calls when you’ve used up your plan's inclusive allowance of minutes.
You can find out what you’ll be charged for any calls you make after you've used up your plan's inclusive allowance of minutes on our All Plans page, which can be found here talkmobile.co.uk/all-plans. You’ll continue to be charged until you reach your Spend Limit, which you can learn more about by going to talkmobile.co.uk/spend-limit.
If you’d like an additional allowance of minutes you can buy a voice Booster, giving you extra minutes to use for 7 days for a one off payment. These are available on all of our Talkmobile “MyPlans” (Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large) or “MySIMO” (Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large) plans.
It’s easy to add a Booster, after you've used up your plan's inclusive allowance of data or minutes we’ll send you a text message with a link to our Booster purchase page (which will only work from your phone).
Alternatively just log into My Account at myaccount.talkmobile.co.uk and hit the ‘Boost My Allowance’ button. You can also boost your allowance from our app. Just search for ‘My Talkmobile’ in the Play Store for Android phones, or the App Store for iOS devices.
Booster purchases now count towards your Spend Limit, so you may need to change your Spend Limit if you are having difficulty adding a booster. You can learn more about this by going to talkmobile.co.uk/spend-limit.
New data Booster prices
After making our data Boosters free in April and May, as another a way of thanking our customers, we’re introducing better value prices for our data Boosters. You’ll now be able to boost your data allowance from as little as £1, with 1GB now costing just £3!
|Data Boost 1GB||£7.50 £3|
|Data Boost 500MB||£5.50 £2|
|Data Boost 200MB||£3.50 £1|
|Voice Boost 1000||£12|
|Voice Boost 500||£6.50|
|Voice Boost 200||£3|
Can I buy more than one Booster at a time?
You can, but as Boosters only last for 7 days, it’s best to buy them as and when you need them.
What happens to my Booster when my monthly allowances replenish?
You’ll automatically switch to using your monthly allowance instead of your Booster, as your allowances take priority over boosters.
What happens if I buy a Booster before my data allowance is used up?
You’ll carry on using what’s left in your monthly data allowance until it’s fully used up. You’ll then start using the data from your data Booster.
Do Boosters work abroad?
You can use a Booster when travelling in our Europe Zones, which you can learn more about by going to talkmobile.co.uk/roaming-in-europe. But just so you know, My Account can’t be accessed from abroad – so to buy a Booster abroad you’ll need to use the link in the text message we send you once you’ve used up your allowance.
