Manage your account by text (2424)

With Skinny’s Text Self Service you can check your balance, buy or cancel your Plan and Add-Ons and Top-Up - all from your phone simply by sending a text. Not only is texting quick and easy but also these Self Service texts are free to send!

Text Self Service is ideal for customers with Windows and BlackBerry smartphones or that have 'feature' phones on which the Skinny App is unsupported.

Try it yourself by texting the following keywords to 2424 or click here to see the full list of commands
