Yes. The bond is refundable when you terminate all your services and have cleared your account of any outstanding balances. If you have not cleared any outstanding balances upon termination of your services, then the bond held can be used to clear the amount outstanding and the balance of the bond (if any) is refunded back to the customer. If you have paid a bond of $500.00 and proved to have a good credit history for a period of 2 (two) years, then Vodafone Credit Management team may approve to refund $400.00 back to you. Vodafone still requires to hold a minimum bond of $100.00 on any active accounts/services.

Additional Services

Can I change my profile at any time?

Yes – and this will be effective upon request.

If I want to change from local calls only to IDD- what is required?

If you have an existing bond of $500.00 already, then there is no additional requirement. If you have a $100.00 bond on the account, then we require an additional $400.00 bond before we activate the new profile access.

If I change my profile access back to local calls only - will I get that bond back?

Not normally – we will hold onto the bond. If we can determine that the account has a good payment history, then yes the bond will be refunded.
