Recharge your Starcomms Nigeria Modem from the comfort of your homes or offices

For a while now, Starcomms Nigeria Plc has made it possible for their Nigerian Internet Users to recharge their internet modems from the comfort of their homes, offices or wherever they may be, without needing to visit any of the Starcomms Offices.

Recharging our modems right from our comfort zone, has been made as simple as just loading our Starcomms line with the recharge card equivalent of your internet subscription fee and sending a customized message via text message to a certain short code.

This method of payment can be right termed as Payment via SMS and is as follows;

For Payment via SMS, load minimum balance required for renewal and simply text the following string *141*7021111111*1234# to 37938 (this is *offer code*data device number*PIN# and starcomms default pin is 1234). Note for an iZap (broadband) device you would need to include the 0 (Zero) before the number and for 1x (dial-up) there would be no 0 (Zero) used. Please find the pre-defined codes for each of the iZap and 1x subscription plans below;

For example, if you use an iZap (broadband) modem and your modem number is 07021111111 and you want to subscribe for the Night Rental plan, your text string would be *244*07021111111*1234# to 37938.

If you are using a 1x (dial-up) modem and your modem number is 07021111111 and you want to subscribe to the Night Rental plan, your text string would be *144*7021111111*1234# to 37938.

Easy!

*UPDATE: There is a new 50-hour Package.The 50-hour package on iZAP according to Starcomms, costs N3990 while the 1x component costs N2500. The service will last fourteen days before a customer can recharge again. Before now, the lowest data subscription hourly plan for Starcomms internet access was 100 hours. To make use of the 50-hour package, customers can recharge with their recharged Starcomms phones with the aid of recharge card and through Starcomms’ website. The code for iZAP 50-hour plan is 249. This means that all a customer needs to do is recharge their Starcomms phones up to N4,000 and send SMS (*249*data device number*1234#) to 37938.

    • Load the value of the subscription you intend to subscribe to. For 100 hours, you will load N6,500 worth of Starcomms recharge card on a Staromms phone and then text *244*Modem Number*1234# to 37938

      To check expiry date, text your modem number to 37937

    Please, how do i recharge my starcomms modem from the internet.Its been a while i used it and I don’t have a starcoms phone to do such.

    Posted by Tex | June 15, 2012, 7:34 am
    • The internet system I checked didn’t work the last time I tried paying on the internet via Starcomms website. I would advice you get someone that has a phone and use it to pay or you pay at the bank or Starcomms office.

      Posted by Eta Uso Jr | June 16, 2012, 8:52 pm
  36. Hi i dont have a starcomms phone, could i put the sim into any other phone, and load the credit to have access…please i need this information because it is totally not convenient for me to leave my office now to locate a starcomms office.

    Posted by yona | June 29, 2012, 11:08 am
    • You cannot use Starcomm sims in any other type of phone aside from Starcomm phones. If you dont have a Starcomms phone and you do not have anyone you can borrow from to recharge and load your modem, you can as well pay via internet banking if you bank with GTB or you can pay using your ATM on Starcomms website.

      Posted by Eta Uso Jr | June 30, 2012, 5:31 am
  37. Hello there. Plz I need help. I have recharged 5000 on my starcomms phone and sent *144*my izap number without zero in front*1234# and sent it to 37938 bt the message I keep getting on my phone is that my number does not have a valid data service that I should call a certain munber for help. Plz I need a very urgent response as to what to do. Thankz

    Posted by Pappyjide | July 8, 2012, 7:33 am
    • Please have you used this line of yours to browse before? I am asking this as I suspect that your line is not an internet-enabled line but rather a normal starcomms line meant for only phone calls.

      Secondly, you said above that you inputed your iZap number, therefore, following your statement, it means that you have an iZap modem and therefore the correct code you are to use for the N5000 subscription is *244* and you would also need to add the zero infront of your data number. The format you used based on your description above was for Dialup of which would not work in recharging an iZap modem.

  49. Hi, I enjoyed ur chatting with the puplic. Good of u. Kindly confirm to me now if izap subscription for 250hrs is valid for 3 month. Secondly, this entry *243* data device number*1234# text to 37938 is ok. Can I use other network service to send text to 37938. If not, pls provide alternative.

    Posted by David K Oluwagbile | September 18, 2012, 10:43 pm
    • Yes it is still valid for three months. *243* data device number*1234# text to 37938 is still very ok and you cannot use another network to send text to 37938 but you can use another network to check your validity by texting your modem number to 07028037937

      • *225# checks account balance. *121 is for Customer Care. Check your pack, you should see a number starting with 070 (could be different in certain cases), but then that’s your phone number.
