TechnoGuy001:

 

Is there any way to get this to work on LineageOS? My Oneplus 2 phone is kinda old and runs much better on LineageOS then the stock OS, so would hate to have to revert to back to stock.

 

I haven't got root or anything my phone, just plain old LineageOS and I get "We wish you could play but this device, OS, or software isn't quite compatible with the 2drees Data Hunt"

 

 

It's tested on loads of devices but can't guarantee it working on every handset, sorry. 

 

Prepay Plus users just get it for 30 days I take it ? 

 

No, a full year regardless if they have a Carryover Combo or not. :)

A Friend of mine is on the $Carryover Combo prepay addon and the txt she gets says the data is only valid for 30 days, is it a bug or is she doing something wrong?

I am on Prepay plus too, and mine is saying 30 day expiry??

 

Logged into 2 Degrees website, shows: "100MB will expire on 13 December 2017"

 

Is that a typo, and should it be 1 year, or not?

Website FAQ says:

 

 

The type of Data you win will depend on the Service you have with 2degrees.

You will receive Carryover Data if you are a:

Pay Monthly customer,
Prepay customer with a Combo pack applied,
Business customer

 

You will receive NZ Data (365 day expiry) if you are a Prepay customer without a Combo Pack.

To purchase a $19 Carryover Combo, simply text buy 19Carry to 233 (Combo valid one month, auto-renews for $19)

Thank you. Free data is always appreciated.

 

But @2degreesCare - the update app thing didn't work very well on my iPhone 7 Plus with latest iOS update (not beta).

 

See what happened here:

 

 

Had to delete the app and then reinstall for it to work.

I'm on prepay without any combos and am getting data that expires in 30 days. Either I'm having a reading brain-fart, or somethings not working as intended.

Yep, sorry about that. Apple customers that have that issue will need to uninstall the app and reinstall to get it to work.

 

Happy hunting!

2degreesCare:

Great news!! We're making ALL the data collected on this years Data Hunt valid for 1 year unlike last year where it lasted a year only if you kept your Carryover Combo active or were on a Pay Monthly or selected Business plan. 

 

Happy Data Hunting! :)

 

Cheers

 

^POB 

 

 

 

 

You guys might need to update the T&Cs:

 

 

13. Prize Data is NZ Data which is valid for 30 days, unless at the time you redeem the Prize Data you are a 2degrees Pay Monthly, Business Select or Business Freedom Plan customer, or a Prepay customer with a current Carryover Combo, in which case the Prize Data is Carryover Data.
