Yoodo plan and services FAQs

What’s the difference between boosters and add-ons?
Our Boosters are additional Data / Voice / SMS packets that you can choose to add to your plan, however and whenever you want to during your plan’s 30-day period. They are active during your plan, and do not extend the duration of your plan. Once your plan expires, they do not roll over to the next plan.
Add-ons are specific data buckets that let you get more out of Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. You can use these apps on a separate data cover that does not affect the main plan’s data cover, unless you finish using them. Watch Yoodo closely for more add-on deals to come!
If I buy an Add-on for Facebook or YouTube, will I be able to track my usage for the add-on separately?
Yes, you will. After you’ve bought your Add-on, you’ll see an additional donut-shaped meter on your Dashboard that will display your Facebook or YouTube usage.
What types of add-ons are available?
You can enjoy IDD, roaming and other content add-ons when you purchase your plan. Content add-ons include Facebook (20GB), Instagram (20GB), Whatsapp (20GB), and Youtube (20GB), to keep up with your social life online.

First, you need to have a base data plan. Then, you can purchase any add-on from your dashboard on the Yoodo app. To keep it simple, your add-on will expire on the same date as your plan. To renew, just choose the same plan in the app, or go to the settings and select auto-renew.
