    A Vodacom customer representative told me over the phone today to SMS "PPD" to 31050 to get usage/limit info on my prepaid data bundle and it works. I see it's not on your list.

    To get a very outdated balance, yes. Vodacom is the worst with balances.

    *111*502# incorrectly returns KB instead of MB, been doing so for a long time.

    Rather use *111*500# it gives your bundle expiry date as well.

    You have the following remaining balances:
    R7.35 airtime
    3725178 MB Data
    Account: R7.35.
    Data Bundle: 3637.87 MB

    A new data bundle notification is available to use
