Worry-Free Data & Spend Control

If you need to keep tabs on your bill, then Worry-Free Data and Spend Control are here for you. Now you can use your mobile without the fear of blowing your budget with any unexpected surprises at the end of the month. We'll keep an eye on your account, so you don't have to!

Worry-Free Data

Helps you stay in control on your data costs, so you won't have to worry about going over you monthly data allowances again. When you run out of data on your plan you'll simply choose how much more you want to spend on data by adding a NZ Data Pack. Here's an example of how it works:

  • When you are running low on data, you'll receive a text notification.
  • You can easily top up your data with one of our great value NZ Data Packs so you don't get caught short.
  • Worry-Free Data stops you from consuming data at a casual per MB rate once you run out, which means you choose how much more you want to spend by adding a NZ Data Pack.
  • When you've used up all available data under your plan, you won't be able to consume any more data until you buy a NZ Data Pack, which start for as little as $5 for 100MB to give you great value data, or wait for your next month's plan data allowance.

Worry-Free Data is automatic on all of our Pay Monthly Plans, there is nothing you need to do or set up. It's simple and worry free.

Worry-Free Data only applies in NZ – be sure to set up Spend Control if you haven't already to keep tabs on your bill when you're roaming overseas.

Spend Control

You can now stay in control of your spend. Spend Control keeps an eye on the total spend across minutes, texts and data you have used and spent over and above your monthly Plan allocation, including any extra value packs you may purchase during the month. We'll send you a text to notify you when you are within $10 of your Spend Control limit so you can decide if you want to increase your limit.

Example: "I'm on a $39 Plan and I want to spend no more than $60 per month".

Spend Control examples

If you have set up a Group Account and would like to manage the spend for each of your connections, then you'll need to ensure each of your connections under your Group Account has Spend Control set up. Each of your connections can do this through Your 2degrees. We'll then send a text to each connection when they’re within $10 of their limit.

It's easy to change your Spend Control limit or override it, just dial *100*5# from your phone. Choose option 1 to change your limit or option 2 to override it.
