Shared Data

Got data to spare? Then why not take advantage of 2degrees Shared Data?

If you’re on an eligible Pay Monthly or Business Mobile Plan, or the Leader of a Pool Plan, you can share your NZ data with up to 5 family and friends who are also with 2degrees, for free! Or if you’d prefer to keep it for yourself, you can share it across up to five of your devices with 2degrees SIMs. Either way, sharing is caring.

How do you start sharing data?

You can start sharing whenever you like in either the 2degrees App, or by text.

Start sharing in the 2degrees App:

  • Select Menu > Settings > Sharing > Add Someone
  • Then punch in the 2degrees number you want to share with
  • Next click the ‘Data’ check box
  • Lastly push ”Add”
  • You’re done! We’ll send you a text once your sharing has been set up
  • You and your sharer may need to restart your mobile to start sharing

You’ll notice that you have the option in the app to share calls and texts as well. If you didn’t already know, you can keep up to 3 of your friends and family chatting and gossiping by sharing your calls and texts with them for $25 per person, per month. So if you want to share data, calls and texts, simply select both boxes and we’ll set everything up together. Find out more about sharing your calls and texts here.

Start sharing by Text:

  • Text “Share” followed by a space, then the number you want to share with, to 747. Like this: SHARE 0220202020
  • We’ll send you a text to confirm you want to do this
  • Reply Y to confirm
  • You’re done! We’ll send a text once your sharing has been set up
  • You and your sharee may need to restart your mobiles to start sharing

How do you stop sharing data?

Had a falling out? Or simply don’t want your friend to use all your data anymore? No problem, you can stop sharing whenever you like in either, the 2degrees App, or by text.
