How can I pay my bill?

One-off card payment.

We accept one-off card payments in emergencies. You can do this online, by phone or with the iD app.

Your questions answered.

Where can I view my bill?

You can view your bill by logging in to My Account or the iD app, and then going to My Bills & Payments.

How can I get paper billing?
Paper billing is available at a cost of £1.50 per month. To get it, call our Customer Services team on 7777 free from your iD mobile, or 0333 003 7777 from a landline (charges from landlines and other mobile networks may vary).
How can I pay my bill?

The best way to pay your bill is via Direct Debit. It's our preferred payment method. As soon as you set one up you’ll get the full benefit of all our network features.

Paying by Direct Debit means you don’t have to pay a monthly administration fee, saving you money and helping to avoid any issues with late payments. You can set up or amend your Direct Debit details online by logging in to My Account.

We also accept one-off card payments in emergencies. You can make an emergency card payment using one of the following methods:

  1. Pay online with My Account. To do this, register at my.idmobile.co.uk if you haven't already done so.
  2. Pay with the iD app. Download it for free from idmobile.co.uk/app if you haven’t already done so.
  3. Pay by phone. Call 7777 free from your iD mobile, or 0333 003 7777 from any other phone (calls from other networks and landlines may vary).
Why do you bill me the day after I join?
We do this to ask you to pay your first month’s line rental in advance. This means that you’ll avoid getting a large bill shock when your first monthly bill arrives.
What happens if I fail to make a payment?

If you miss a payment, we’ll probably try to contact you via SMS, TTS (Text To Speech message) or by post. We might put an outgoing restriction on the line until your account is brought up to date. If you think that you might miss a payment, the best thing to do is to contact us as soon as possible. We’ll do our best to help.

You can contact us as follows:

  • Call 7777 free from your iD mobile
  • Call 0333 003 7777 from any other phone (calls from other networks and landlines may vary)
  • Complete the online contact form.
  • Write to:
    iD Customer Services
    PO Box 356
    Southampton
    SO30 2PG

We strongly recommend that you contact us if you think you might have any problems paying, because failing to pay your monthly bill could cause you problems:

  • Your credit rating could suffer, with a ‘default’ applied to your credit file. This could affect your future applications for credit, including mortgages.
  • Your account could be referred to a debt collection agency, who would then handle further correspondence and contact on our behalf.
  • Your account could be disconnected, and a cancellation fee applied in line with our terms and conditions.
Can I change my payment date?

Not at the moment, but we're working on adding this option. It should be available shortly.

Do I need to pay any charges at the end of my plan?
Yes, at the end of your plan you'll pay your standard monthly plan amount, along with any additional charges you incurred outside of your allowances.
Will it cost me anything to cancel early?
Yes. As with other networks, if you cancel your iD plan early you’ll need to pay an early cancellation fee. The amount varies, depending on the type of plan and how early you want to cancel. To find out more, call our Customer Services team on 7777 free from your iD mobile, or 0333 003 7777 from a landline (charges from landlines and other mobile networks may vary).
What are the Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) charges on my bill?
If you get a 30p charge on your bill for an MMS, it could be for a number of reasons. MMS includes picture messaging, video messaging, using emojis in a text, or sending an email by text.
How much does it cost to make a video call?

Video calling to iD and other UK mobile numbers costs 50p per minute, with a one-minute minimum call charge

Why did I get charged for accessing my voicemail?

Calls to access your voicemail come out of your monthly minutes allowance, but if you run out of minutes you’ll get charged the standard rate for using voicemail. This is currently 40p per minute, with a one-minute minimum call charge.

You’ll also be charged the standard voicemail rate if you use the call back service within voicemail. Find out more on the new Voicemail page.

If you access voicemail while roaming in a country not covered by your plan or bundle, you’ll also be charged. For details, check out our roaming call charge rates.

What are the charges for calls, texts, MMS and data outside of my allowance?

Please check our call charges table.

Can I set a cap (call limit) on my price plan?

Yes, all iD Mobile plans purchased after 15 June 2017 come with a pre-installed capping feature, so there will always be a cap on your monthly spend. The cap is pre-set at your credit limit, and can be adjusted to as little as £5.

Having a cap on your plan means that even if you use up your minutes, texts or data and start getting charged at our out-of-bundle rates, you won't spend more than you can afford.

To find out more, call us on 7777 free from your iD mobile, or 0333 003 7777 from another phone (charges from landlines and other mobile networks may vary).

How can I check my monthly usage?

You can easily check how many minutes, texts and data you’re using throughout the month. Simply log in to My Account or the iD app, and then go to My Allowances.

You can also check your balances using our handy automated voice service - call 7777 free from your iD mobile, or 0333 003 7777 from a landline (charges from landlines and other mobile networks may vary).

When do my allowances refresh?

Your allowances refresh each calendar month. The exact day depends on the date your plan started. For example, if you have a connection date of the 5th, your allowances will run until the 4th of the following month, and refresh on the 5th.

Can I change the date that my allowances refresh each month?

No, sorry. We’re unable to change the allowance refresh date.

What is inclusive EU roaming?

All iD Mobile plans come with inclusive EU roaming. This lets you roam like you're at home in 50 destinations. Any minutes, texts and data you use come out of your monthly allowances (fair usage & open data policies apply).

How does inclusive EU roaming work?

1. Enable roaming on your phone. You can do this with the iD Mobile app or My Account online.

2. Head off on your travels. Visit any of the 50 inclusive EU roaming destinations.

3. Use your phone like at home. Minutes, texts ∓ data will come out of your allowance.

What happens if I run out of an allowance when I’m roaming?

If you run out of an allowance and keep using it (for example, if you run out of minutes but keep phoning the UK), you'll be charge at our out-of-bundle roaming rates. See our roaming rates page.

Note: your out-of-bundle data usage will be capped at £41 (even if your cap is more), due to current EU regulations.

Do add-ons work abroad?

You can use add-ons in any of our 50 inclusive EU roaming destinations. So if you're ever running low on allowance, you can buy what you need with your iD Mobile app or My Account online. If you're in a destination where we don't offer inclusive EU roaming, your add-ons won't work and you'll be charged at our roaming rates for any usage.

When I'm roaming, what countries can I call with my minutes?

When you're abroad in an inclusive EU roaming destination, you can use your minutes to call the UK, or another phone number in the destination you're in. If you call a non-UK number in a destination other to the one you're in, you won't be able to use your inclusive minutes - you'll be charged roaming rates instead.

Will I use up data if I login to the iD Mobile app when I'm in another EU country?

No, the iD Mobile app doesn't use up any of your data. You can login and use it as many times as you want, in any EU country.
