Q. ​Do I need a data bolt on, and how long does this take to apply?

It is always recommended if you plan on using your device to access the internet or receive emails, that you have an appropriate data bolt on applied to your line. The networks quote 24-48 working hours to apply network amendments to your line before you start using data on your device. This ensures that all your data usage is included in your newly allocated bundle and you don’t accrue any unwanted charges. We would also always advise that you wait to receive confirmation from our support team that your data bolt on has been applied before you start to use your data services.
