Add or Change My Time Numbers: Mobile Phone

If you're on a Mobile plan that features 'My Time' you can make free calls to nominated mobile or landline numbers, any time, day or night.

The amount and type of numbers that can be added to your 'My Time' list are dependent upon your plan. There are 2 ways to add your 'My Time' numbers - via your handset or on the internet.

Important: When you first activate your Mobile it may take up to 24 hours before you can add your My Time numbers in My Account.

On your mobile: App, a Call or SMS

On the internet: My Account
