Shared Data

Have a Pay Monthly Plan, and a tablet or modem that uses a 2degrees SIM? If you answered yes to both, you can take advantage of Shared Data.

Don’t worry about buying separate Data Packs for all your devices, you can simply share the data from your Plan. And if you need a little bit more data then simply add a Data Pack to your Plan and you can use that across 5 devices with a 2degrees SIM.

Easy!

Share with family and friends

Sick of waiting for your friend to reach a WiFi zone before they upload that one good photo of you onto Instagram?

With 2degrees, we know that sharing is caring (Thanks, Mum!), that’s why we’ve made it possible for you share your data with your nearest and dearest too. 

All you have to do is make sure they have a 2degrees SIM in their phone. And don’t worry, you don’t have to stand next to each other to do this, everyone just has to be on NZ soil. Share your data with other people in exactly the same way as you share across your devices.

To START sharing

Flick a text to 747 from the phone that your 2degrees Plan is on (we expect this is just your regular phone). Now, the tricky part- type ‘SHARE’ followed by a space and then the number of the phone you want to share with. Like this: SHARE 0220202020

To STOP sharing

Have a falling out? Or simply don’t want your friend to use all your data anymore? No problem, just send a text to 747 from your phone with the 2degrees Plan. Type ‘STOP’ followed by a space, and then the number of the phone you want to stop sharing with. Like this: STOP 0220202020
