Topic # 66028 11-Aug-2010 13:29 Send private message

I've installed a $20 prepaid 2degrees microSim into my Ipad and it appears to be working fine.  However how do I top up my microSIM?  When I looked at the 2degrees web-site it looks like you need to interface with your mobile. I do not have a personal mobile just a work blackberry.  Will I need to get a MicroSim adapter and insert into my blackberry, activate my 2 degrees account, and then going forward I will be able to top-up my account online? Will that work or is there an easier way?

The 2degrees website is free to browse and you can topup from there. Also a quick look in our sticky posts and should've seen this: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=85&topicid=65539

You can also call 200 (or the 0800 number) and topup any 2degrees number from there.

Just have to say, its a nice feature the 2degrees.co.nz web site being free to browse :), when i got my usb stick was able to browse it before any credit was loaded, and the data included with the stick was not used.

Glad you like it! I should also point out that it's also free to browse the site while internationally roaming.

This. You'll only need to do it once to get the initial password, so you can do it without an adaptor in any phone where the SIM holder will hold the microSIM in place.

Yes, that's the idea. It's actually the only way to topup for free while internationally roaming. Using SMS costs 80c, assuming you can find a 2degrees voucher in Kryzgystan, and calling the IVR (if it works from where you are) costs approximately a limb and a half per minute.

Yep, better point out, using data is expensive when overseas - http://www.2degreesmobile.co.nz/roaming-overseas-pricing.
