Afrihost has great customer service. They always respond really quickly to emails or WhatsApp messages, and their consultants are always polite and pleasant.

Afrihost is the best. They have time and patience for the average users and know how to talk to people. I’m always amazed about how they handle us customers. Keep up the good work guys. Even the amount of time they take to resolve an issue; it’s just amazing. You can just tell that they know what they are doing.

Every time I have had an issue with my domain I have gone to the support whatsapp line and within moments I have received (human) help (not AI) and been able to get through the issue successfully. This immediate support is a game changer for me.

Support and help is fast and great, but there is a problem enforcing SLAs with the fibre network provider. Afrihost hand the problem over to Metrofibre but then their hands is cut of. Thanks for that service. My problem does not reside with Afrihost but with the Fibre network provider. I have a fibre problem now for 3 weeks running and the fibre provider by name Mertofibre does not come out to fix or don't know how to fix the problem. Waiting now 2 weeks for Metrofibre technician to call me or show up. I have VERY SLOWWWW speed. Worse then a 64 k dial-up modem.

Tired of the old way of doing mobile?

AirMobile is seriously different.

We took what’s wrong with mobile and made it right. A service that we’d actually want to use ourselves.

That means ditching things like crazy fees, expensive contracts and overall nonsense.

It is time to get some fresh air.

Try us out for FREE
Try us out and we’ll give you 10GB mobile data + R100 airtime for FREE.

Yep, you heard right!

To help you get started, every AirMobile SIM comes preloaded with R100 airtime and 10GB mobile data - absolutely FREE.

So why not try us out - sign up online or via the App.

Please note. Only 2 promotional signups per legal entity (business or individual). Promotional allocations are not transferrable. Promotional airtime and data expires at the end of the following month from the date of allocation. Afrihost reserves the right to change the promotion at any time. While stocks last. E&OE.

Make FREE Air2Air calls.

We know you have a lot to say, so we're making all calls from AirMobile to AirMobile absolutely FREE until 30 April 2024.

This is a promotional offer, so make sure you sign up before it's gone.

Please note. Air Mobile (Pre Feb 2024) products are excluded from this promotion. Afrihost reserves the right to change the promotion at any time. While stocks last. E&OE.

Earn rewards with your AirID Promo Code.

Every AirMobile number comes with a unique AirID Promo Code.

For every person who signs up using an existing user’s code, both the referrer and referee will get 5GB of mobile data. This is activated once the new user verifies their payment details.

Not sure if you can get an eSIM? View our eSIM compatible devices.

Set top up rules that works with you.

There's nothing worse than finding out you've gone over your included minutes or data allocation and ventured into overpriced out-of-bundle rates!

That's why we're putting a stop to it with a feature we call Auto Top Up. Unlike our competitors, we allow you to set a limit that actually works.

You choose how much data/airtime you need, when it should top you up, and your monthly limit. If you prefer to top up manually, you can easily turn off the Auto Top Up feature.

Share the love with AirShare.

Getting started.

How does this product differ from existing AirMobile packages?

Until recently, all Air Mobile (Pre Feb 2024) products worked by adding airtime and data onto an existing MTN SIM card.

AirMobile is now an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator). We run off MTN's infrastructure and network which means we do everything they can, we just don’t have the buildings and towers. You'll now get an AirMobile SIM card and all services will run through Afrihost.

This move gives us more power and control to give you nothing but Pure Mobile Joy!

How is your coverage?

AirMobile uses MTN towers, so we're everywhere you are!

Our network has expansive coverage in all major cities, towns and on national roads.

Our network is LTE capable in major centres, ensuring you get the absolute best speeds available - at no extra cost.

Moving to AirMobile.

Can I get a new number and SIM card directly from Afrihost?

Yes! During sign up, you can choose to get a physical SIM card delivered straight to your door. Or you can pop in at Afrihost HQ in Rivonia, JHB and grab your SIM card.

If you can't wait, why not sign up for an eSIM and get connected within minutes if you have an eSIM compatible device.

I'm on another network and want to keep my number. How do I move to AirMobile?

If you currently have a prepaid SIM card from another network, you must port your number to AirMobile.

Cancellation and handset fees may apply with your current Mobile Service Provider.

To port to AirMobile, click the "Try us out for FREE" button and follow the prompts during sign up.

We can't wait to welcome you to our family!

If I port to AirMobile, how long must I wait before I can port to another service provider?

You will have to wait 60 days. This is due to regulatory practices and not AirMobile specific.

I need more help with porting to AirMobile.

Visit our Porting to AirMobile page for step-by-step instructions detailed information about porting.

SIM cards.

Do you offer eSIMs?

Yes, you can sign up for an AirMobile eSIM. If your device is eSIM compatible, it is the quickest way to get up and running.

Not all devices are eSIM compatible, so make sure to check our list of eSIM compatible devices.

Can I get a physical SIM card?

Yes, we also have physical SIM cards.

All AirMobile SIMs are 3-way breakable and can break into the following sizes:

  • standard,
  • micro, and
  • nano.

Our SIMs are for smart and not-so-smart phones and will fit most of the latest devices.

Make sure to always first check which SIM size your device takes before breaking the SIM. Using an incorrectly sized SIM can damage the device and void the warranty.

Once I have my SIM card, am I activated?

It depends on whether you are getting a new number or porting your existing number to AirMobile.

If you’re getting a new number from AirMobile.

Insert (or download) the SIM into the device. Network configuration settings will automatically be sent to your device. Alternatively, you can manually set up your APN by visiting setup.airmobile.co.za.

If you're porting to AirMobile.

Once you receive your new AirMobile SIM card, please DO NOT insert it into a device until the porting process is complete. When you get your SIM, visit setup.airmobile.co.za for a step-by-step guide.

Does an AirMobile SIM card expire?

No, your AirMobile SIM card will not expire.

Afrihost reserves the right to change this policy at any time.

Remember to set up your own Auto Top Up rules online or via the App.
