How to pay for your Pool Plan

One of your Pool will be the Leader, so choose who it is wisely. We’d recommend your most reliable because they’ll be the one responsible for the bill.

You’ll notice in your bill, that we’ve broken the cost down into a few easy items; the Carryover Plan which the Leader is on, and a Pool Plan for each additional member. That way you can see exactly what’s going on.

The Leader of your Pool will also be able to buy extra Data Packs for your crew if you happen to make your way through all your Carryover Data.

How can I see who is in my Pool?

We’d hope you don’t forget the names of your nearest and dearest, but just incase you have a sudden mind block you can see all the numbers of the members in your Pool in Your 2degrees or in your 2degrees App.

How can I get more data for the Pool?

Already run out? We can help with that. All the Leader needs to do is to choose the amount of data to add to the Pool and text 233 the Pack name. You can choose between $10 500MB NZ Carryover Pack, $20 1GB NZ Carryover Pack or the mighty $50 15GB NZ Carryover Pack.

The Leader is the only one able to add Data Packs, so make sure their number is on speed dial. The cost of the pack will be added to the bill at the end of the month. Easy.

How can I set up Spend Control for the Pool?

If you’re the Leader of the Pool, you can either set the Spend Control Limits for your members, or give them access to set their own. If you’re not sure how to give your Members access, call our Customer Care team on 0800 022 022.

Can I still share data to people outside of the Pool?

You sure can! If the Leader wants to share the love outside your Pool, they can follow the normal Shared Data steps.
