Bill Pay

Getting Started

Thank you for choosing Tesco Mobile. Getting started couldn't be easier. 

Pop your new SIM card into your phone. If you're unsure how to do this, there's instructions in your phone manual. If you bought a new phone with us, your new sim card will already be in there. 

Then just make a call and you're ready to go.

How to Unlock your Phone from Another Network

If you've brought your phone from another network, you may need to have your phone unlocked. If so, you will need to contact your previous network provider, quoting your phone IMEI, which can be found on the box of the phone, underneath the battery, or by dialing *#06#. 

Please note that all networks will have terms and conditions for unlocking phones. 


You will need extra settings if you have just moved to Tesco Mobile or if you have moved your SIM card to another phone. 

Please click here to set up your phone. 

Using the link above, you can send settings to your phone. Enter your mobile number, choose your phone make and model, and we will send the settings to you via text. Follow the instructions provided to install the settings.

Billing FAQs

My First Bill 

All Tesco Mobile Ireland, billing is paperless. To view your bill every month, you will need to register on My Tesco Mobile.

You can get answers to many of your billing questions, by checking our sample interactive bill here.

On your first bill, you will see two lines for monthly subscription. These are the monthly charges for your price plan and, also, a pro-rata charge. The pro-rata charge covers the period between the date you activated your mobile number and your first billing date. The payment that you made online/instore will also be seen here.

Viewing my Bill

Once registered on My Tesco Mobile, you can view your bill each month. We will send you a text when the bill is ready and payment is due 14 days after receiving this text. 

To view your bill, log into My Tesco Mobile. From there, select the Bills tab from the menu on the left hand side of the screen. Bills can be printed from here or saved in PDF format. 

Bill Breakdown

On your bill, you will see all your usage broken down into areas. You will be able to see both usage covered by your tariff and any charges for usage that is not covered by your tariff.

  • Voice Calls: These are charges for calls made and texts sent from your phone. These include calls to landlines and mobiles, national and international, as well as non geographic numbers, such as lo call and premium rated. 
  • TMI On Net: Calls / texts made to other Tesco Mobile Ireland customers.
  • TMI Off Net: Calls / texts made to numbers not on the Tesco Mobile network.
  • Data: These are charges for using mobile internet, email and other data services. If you're using a smartphone, then some of the apps on your phone may incur data charges. 
  • Picture Messages: These are MMS (multimedia messages) that you send from your phone. 
  • Roaming: These are any calls made or received and text sent while using your phone outside the Republic of Ireland. Your bill will also tell you the area your roaming charges originate from. 
  • International:  These are any calls made to numbers outside the Republic of Ireland. 

At any time in the month you can check the current cost of your bill and any charges not covered by your plan. Simply text 'SPEND' to 1744. This is a free text.

Inclusive Units

There are several ways you can check your allowance of minutes, text and data.

Log into My Tesco Mobile. Once logged in from the Home screen, you can see all bundle balances. These show both percentages remaining and actual balances remaining.

The My Tesco Mobile app for Android and iPhone are available free of charge from your app store.

You can also text BALANCE for free to 1744.

Changing your Tariff

You may request a Tariff transfer by notifying Customer Care. However, within any Minimum Term you cannot move onto a Tariff with a lower monthly payment unless the charges for the new Tariff exceed the total tariff charges for the remainder of the existing Service Agreement. This does not affect your right to cancel your contract under paragraph 3 (Cooling-off Period) or paragraph 5. Ending this Service Agreement you can also change to a higher plan if you wish by entering into a new Service Agreement.

Cancelling your Account

30 Day SIM Only / Capped Plans

If you are on a SIM only plan, we will cancel your plan for you before the start of your next billing period. Please contact customer care on 1749 to request that we cancel your account. We will move your number to Pay As You Go the day before your new billing period begins. If you have made calls not covered by your plan such as international/premium calls, then you will receive a final bill for these charges.

Contract Plans

When you enter into a new plan, you have 14 days from the date of activation from which you can cancel your account. If you choose to cancel your account after this time, you will then be liable for the recurring monthly charges on your account for the remainder of your contracted period. This charge will appear as a cancellation fee on your final bill.
Please contact Customer Care on 1749 to discuss this. 

Pay As You Go

You don’t need to contact us to cancel your pay as you go number. Your number will automatically deactivate after 6 months of non usage. Any credit balance on the account at deactivation will be lost.

Should you wish to take your number to another network, you simply need to contact the network you want to move to. Please ensure your phone is unlocked to accept other network SIMs. Any credit balance on the account will be lost if the number is moved off the network.

Credit Limit Explained

All accounts will default with a credit limit value of €50. This means that you have a cap of €50 on your usage outside your plan. This includes calls that you make to premium, international, roaming usage and also for calls and texts once you have exceeded your price plan allowance.

You will be notified when you reach 80% of this limit and again at 100%. When you reach 100%, outgoing calls may be barred.

We would recommend that you contact us once you receive the 80% notification text to discuss your account.
