The My Truphone app lets you buy roaming data plans to get you connected around the world.

Our Global plan works in 113 countries and territories. We also have a regional Europe-only plan as well as local plans for different regions such as Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe & Oceania.

How do I buy more data?

Need more data? Don’t worry. You can purchase a new plan on the My Truphone app. Just open it up, select the plan you want, enter your credit card details (or pay with Apple Pay) and that’s it, you’re online.

Alternatively, existing customers may also purchase a plan from a Truphone Commercial partner i.e vending machine etc. In some cases, your receipt can include a QR code, scan this from your device to activate the data plan. From the My Truphone App, navigate to the Voucher QR Code Scan feature and tap Learn More.

*Scanning a Truphone QR Code can give you access to a data plan or give you some discount. To use it just go to QR Code Scan feature from the My Truphone App. The app will do the rest of the work for you.

Remember: make sure the roaming switch is ON when using a Truphone plan.

Remember that you can also choose to create an account so you can save your credit card details for faster purchases. Note that you can buy a maximum of five plans at a time.

Is it possible to buy multiple plans at the same time?

You may only use one plan at a time. However, you can purchase a maximum of five plans at once. This is useful if, for example, you are already using a European plan but travel to Australia. As soon as you land and buy a local Australia plan, the My Truphone app will detect your location and automatically switch to the Australian data bundle. When you return, and if your European plan is still active, the app will revert to your European data bundle.

How would I know which plan can be purchased in each location?
The My Truphone app will automatically list the plans available based on your current location. You can also select a destination and see what plans are available there.

How would I know which plan is being spent if I have multiple data allowances in my account?

If you have purchased more than one plan, each of them will show up on the main screen. If more than one plan is available to use in your location, they will be used up in the order that you bought them. In other words, the first data bundle you buy will be the active plan—it will appear above the queued plan(s) and consumed first.

Should data from your active plan run out, it will disappear from the screen and the app will switch you to the queued plan’s allowance automatically.

In the case that only one plan is available in your current location, it is this plan that will remain active—regardless of when you bought it. The other will be greyed out until you connect in a location the plan supports.

Buying a plan before you travel

Congratulations, you’re planning ahead. So, along with buying your travel insurance, checking your passport and booking hire cars, you can now purchase your data connectivity in advance.

Our new browse-and-buy feature allows you to buy a plan up to 30 days before you travel. Tap Select Destination on the top-right corner of the app, search for your destination from the list and choose the plan that works best for you.

You’re about to purchase a plan, so you’ll need your Mastercard, Visa or American Express credit card handy (unless you prefer to use Apple Pay, which is fine too). Once you’ve purchased your plan, the app will launch the eSIM helper, guides you through the process of downloading a Truphone eSIM profile onto your device. You’ll be connected to the Truphone network within a few seconds.

(NOTE: Due to iOS settings, your iPhone will automatically switch to this plan even if you’re not planning on using it yet. You should switch back to your primary network through Settings > Mobile Data)

You’ll be able to see the plan queued up at the bottom of the home screen. When you land in your destination, tap it and switch to ‘Activate’. You won’t be able to pause the plan after that, so make sure you don’t activate the plan before you need it.

Remember: make sure the roaming switch is ON when using a Truphone plan.
