Rocket Packs FAQs

Getting your first 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 Rocket Packs SIM. Or if you’re buying a new phone, all our pay as you go phones now come on the Rocket Packs tariff as standard.
When you join Tesco Mobile on our Rocket Packs tariff, 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 six Rocket Packs. Rocket Packs last a month from when you buy them. They automatically renew at the end of the month, so you’ll need to make sure that you’ve got enough credit on your phone.

Buy a new Rocket Pack any time

If you use up any of your Rocket Pack before the end of the month, you can get a new one straight away, no need to wait. And if you want to switch it up or down next time, you can choose whichever pack you need.
To buy a Rocket Pack or change to a different size, just go to My Account or call 282 free from your Tesco Mobile phone.
When you buy a new Rocket Pack, any data, minutes or texts left in your current Rocket Pack will be cancelled, as the new one replaces the old one, and starts straight away.

How to get super-speedy 4G at no extra cost?

All our Rocket Packs come with 4G at no extra cost, meaning that websites load faster and apps run more smoothly. Check your 4G network coverage or find out how much data you’ll need with our 4G data calculator.
