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, 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.

To START sharing

There are a couple of super simple ways to get started with Shared Data. And, you can start sharing whenever you like.

Via the 2degrees App: In the 2degrees App, select Menu > Settings > Sharing > Add Someone, then punch in their 2degrees number and follow the steps. Easy.

By Text: Text “Share” followed by a space, then the number you want to share with, to 747. Like this: SHARE 0220202020

To STOP sharing

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. You can do this in a couple of ways.

Via the 2degrees App: In the 2degrees App, select Menu > Settings > Sharing, then you'll see the numbers (or names) of the people you’re sharing with. To stop sharing with them simply select the “x” icon and follow the steps. Easy.

By Text: Text  ‘STOP’ followed by a space, and then the number of the phone you want to stop sharing with, to 747.  Like this: STOP 0220202020
