In order to get your calls/texts/internet to work, topping up is not enough; you’ll need to convert the top up into membership. 48 have memberships which are bundles of calls, texts and internet. You’ll need to buy a membership each month to have these active.



You can buy your membership straight away with your payment card without topping up your account, just click here to get started.



Remember that things like MMS, international calls etc. will be charged from your credit balance though, so we recommend that you top up your balance by €2 or €3 as well as your membership for any extra charges you might need. You can click here to top up your balance.



So if you for example want to buy the Don membership, you can top up by €23, then convert the €20 into your Don membership and then you’ll have the remaining €3 on your account if you ever need it for something extra. Simple!
