2degrees Data Hunt
Thanks for playing 2degrees Data Hunt! The hunt is over... for now! Keep the app installed and your eyes peeled for more chances to hunt for data in 2017.
Using the interactive map as your guide, find 2degrees Data Spots throughout New Zealand. Data Spots are easy to locate as they’re marked by blue 2degrees Data Pins on your map. When you’re near a Data Spot you’ll be able to collect its Data Pin, give it a spin to find out how much free data you’ve scored! All the data you collect will be loaded to your account instantly.
If you’re not a 2degrees customer, you can still hunt data. Just join 2degrees before 31/01/17, and we’ll apply the data you’ve found to your new 2degrees account. You can either request a free SIM through this app, or pick one up for $5 from anywhere selling our SIMs. Then, just log out of the app and log in with your new 2degrees number before 6/2/17. Or, you can keep your current number, switch it over to 2degrees, and when you open the app your data will be instantly added.
The interactive map will guide you through the gaming experience. Use it to locate thousands of Data Spots throughout New Zealand. When you’re in a Data Spot you’ll be able to switch to live view mode, this will allow you to collect and spin the Data Pin to reveal how much free data you’ve found.
Every Data Spot has its own blue Data Pin, loaded with a range of free data values. When logged in you’ll be able to keep track of your Data Hunt progress, with live updates telling you how many Data Pins you’ve collected and their value. You can only collect from a Data Pin once, but don’t panic, there are over 1,500 and you can collect up to 10,000MB of data throughout summer.
Once you have collected a Data Pin it will turn grey, making it easy to keep track of where you’ve been and what’s still out there to collect.
Keep a look out for elusive Golden Pins. Golden Pins are different to blue Data Pins, they only pop up for a short period of time and give you larger data amounts. When a Golden Pin pops up on your map it pays to get to it fast, because they don’t stick around for long.
Whenever you collect free data you’ll be able to snap and share a pic with the Data Pin. Share to show your friends how much free data you’ve scored thanks to 2degrees.
