Stop Autorenew for data bundle (no expiry date) Safaricom

How do you stop autorenew for Safaricom data bundles with no expiry date? What happens when you don’t want your data bundle to be autorenewed daily – after making a purchase via the *100# / *544# > Data Bundle (NO EXPIRY DATE) menu? I will show you two methods you can use.

Dial *544# to stop data bundle autorenew

Here is the step-by-step process to stop autorenew:

  • Dial *544# on your feature phone, smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer (if using your Safaricom SIM card in a modem or router)
  • Select option 1: Data Bundle (NO EXPIRY DATE)
  • Select option 5: Stop Autorenew

Dial *100# to unsubscribe from Safaricom data bundle with no expiry

Here is how to use the *100# USSD short code if you want to stop autorenew:

  • Dial *100#
  • Select option 9: Buy
  • Select option 1: Data Bundle (NO EXPIRY DATE)
  • Select option 5: Stop Autorenew

At the time of writing this post, all I get when I follow the steps above is this: ‘You don’t have an active auto renew product.’

This reminds me of the last time I purchased a bundle from the *544# Data Bundle (NO EXPIRY DATE) menu. The text message I got from Safaricom had no mention of a daily autorenewal – like it was the case when I made a purchase via the *544# Calls & SMS (NO EXPIRY DATE). 24 hours passed and I never got any message from Safaricom telling me they had (attempted to) autorenew my data bundle.

So, there isn’t a lot to worry about.

Why would someone want to stop autorenew after purchasing a data bundle?

To purchase another type of bundle. If you are okay with the Normal Data Bundles WITH EXPIRY and see no need to keep putting your money towards a Data Bundle with NO EXPIRY DATE, you can simply opt out by using the Stop Autorenew feature made available by Safaricom on both the *100# and *544# menus.

Also instead of two subscriptions – one for calls & SMS with no expiry date and another for data bundles with no expiry date – you may want in on one bundle that combines voice + text + data like an all in one monthly bundle by Safaricom such as All in One Bundles, Platinum bundles or Advantage bundles.
