Skyrove Important Information -

How long are my vouchers valid for?
There is no expiry date for your vouchers – they’re valid for as long as you have still have unused data credits.

How can I keep track of how many credits I’ve used?
You’ll always be shown exactly how much data you have remaining via the Skyrove Status screen that you’ll see when you’re logged in.

Can I use my Skyrove account at other Skyrove hotspots?
Yes! You can use your Skyrove account and credits at any Skyrove hotspot in South Africa and worldwide. This is called roaming.

What SMTP server should I use for my email program?
our email application (e.g. Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird) might give you an error saying that ‘Relaying is not allowed’. When you log in at a Skyrove hotspot, your ISP will not be able to see that you are a legitimate customer and will therefore not allow you to use their email servers. (They do this to prevent spammers from using their servers) We recommend that you use your ISP’s online webmail service (most all ISPs provide this). In South Africa, you can also try the smtp.saix.net server.
