Rocket Packs last a month and automatically renew, either from your recurring payment or from money you’ve loaded onto your SIM. For example, if you get your first Rocket Pack on 5 January, it will last until midnight on 4 February. Occasionally there’s a short delay before your Rocket Pack is ready.

What’s the easiest way to buy a Rocket Pack?

Top-up first, then straight after you’ve topped up, you need to buy your Rocket Pack. You can do this:

How do I join Tesco Mobile and get a Rocket Pack?

If you’re not on Tesco Mobile but you’ve already got a phone you’re happy with, you can order a free No-contract SIM and then get a Rocket Pack. Or if you’re buying a new phone, all our pay as you go phones now come on the No-contract SIM with Rocket Packs as standard.

Your first top-up turns into your first Rocket Pack. For example, if you top-up £10, your top-up will change in to a £10 Rocket Pack. Your first top-up needs to be £10, £15 or £20.

After that you can choose from any of our 5 Rocket Packs: £7.50, £10, £15 £20 and £30. Rocket Packs last a month from when you buy them. They automatically renew at the end of the month. You can set up a recurring payment in My Account to get your Rocket Pack each month or you can top-up each month.

Here’s where to order your free No-contract SIM

My Rocket Pack ran out, so I’ve topped-up to get a new one but the Rocket Pack hasn’t updated- what do I do?

Straight after you’ve topped up, you need to buy a new Rocket Pack to make sure your credit isn’t used up as normal credit. You can do this:

  • In My Account
  • In the Tesco Mobile app
  • By calling 282
  • By texting 28948
  • By calling Customer Care on 4455 from your Tesco Mobile phone
Why hasn’t my Rocket Pack activated yet?

It can take up to 4 hours for your Rocket Pack to activate. We’ll text you when it’s ready to use.

What do I do if I’ve used up my credit before my Rocket Pack activated?

Sorry, you will have to top-up again so you have enough to get the Rocket Pack you want, or you could get a smaller Rocket Pack if you have enough credit left.

Then you can buy your Rocket Pack:

How can I change to get a Rocket Pack if I’m on Triple Credit?

You will need to change tariff if you’re on Triple Credit (but you don’t need a new SIM). To change tariff and buy a Rocket Pack, please call 282 free from your Tesco Mobile phone and select ‘More info on different types of credit’ to take you to the change tariff options.
