Because once you’ve done that, you can start controlling your plan like a boss and do all the important stuff yourself - rather than spending time on the phone with the customer services department. Here are a few of our favourite features:
Monitor your usage and keep a close eye on your limits.
Your allowances are all on the dashboard. You can view them in more detail by clicking 'Allowances'.
Adjust your capped limits.

Manage your Direct Debit.
You can easily change your Direct Debit details in the ‘Billing’ section.
Make a manual card payment.
You can make a manual card payment, but we charge you £3.50 every month you do this. If this sounds fair enough, go to 'My Bills', 'Billing', and select 'make a payment'.
Buy add-ons as soon as you need them.
Go to your 'Add-Ons' page, click the 'Buy' tab, and choose the add-on you want. You may then be given an option to make it recurring (if allowed).
Change your plan.

Upgrade to a shiny new handset.

Activate or deactivate key features such as voicemail, roaming and adult content filtering.
You can do this by going to the ‘Services’ page, and toggling them on or off.
View any of your bills from the past 6 months.
To view your current bill, go to 'Billing', then 'Current month'. To view previous bills, go to 'Billing', then 'See a Breakdown'.
