How do I purchase Telkom mobile data directly without topping up airtime?

It is not a must to have airtime for you to purchase bundles for your mobile phone. To do so, you need to purchase a PIN-less or PIN-based voucher. A pinless voucher permits one to get an electronic PIN-less voucher through point of sale systems found in the Direct Stores as well as other shops. Then, you can recharge with a package directly without using the traditional method of first purchasing airtime and then converting it to a bundle.

All you need to do after you get the electronic PIN based voucher is to dial *188* PIN# (the PIN is formed of the digits on the PIN-less voucher) and the data will be automatically loaded into your SIM card.
