If you need a new smartphone but can’t afford to buy one because of the cost, you can use the Safaricom Go Monthly device plan. Getting a phone is now easier and budget-friendly because you only need to make a deposit and then make small monthly payments for a set period.
During this time, your phone will be automatically on postpay until the payment period ends. The contract must be finished to finally choose if you want to move to prepaid or remain on postpay.
The PostPay device plans will be available to pre-scored customers based on their usage of Safaricom services. In addition, each customer will have 2-3 different options tailored to them.
To see which devices are available to you, dial *544# and select Go Monthly.

What else do you need to know about the plan?
The Safaricom postpay device plan makes it easier to afford a new cellphone if you need one urgently and can’t afford to pay for one outright.
The device comes with postpay bundles of minutes, data, and SMSs that renew monthly during repayment. This helps you reduce connectivity costs. You can also use your credit limit or airtime to buy a new Postpay bundle when your resources deplete.
You will also be notified when your resources are almost depleted. For minutes, you will be notified when your balance is at 60 minutes and 2 minutes, and for data at 75MB and 2MB.
The SMS bundle can’t be used for charged services like SKIZA tunes or roaming. You’ll need to top up prepaid airtime or use Paybill 200200 and use your phone number as an account number.
Only data bundles can be shared with up to three phone numbers.
Check your balance by dialling *544*44# or *200#.
If you’re unable to make payments, the device will be disconnected.
