Data transfer

Data bundle transfer allows Telkom subscribers to share data amongst each other. Dial *180# from the phone sending the data and follow the steps in the menu. You can choose to transfer 250MB, 500MB or 1GB with a monthly transfer limit of 5GB. Once you’ve completed the process, the data will be transferred faster than you can say megabyte.
