I have a been with 2 degrees mobile for my phone for about a year and have changed most of the family to 2degrees for their mobiles as well.

Since getting a very nice HTC Flyer tablet last year I got a 2 degrees SIm for it and tried the 50mb then the 100mb national data packs as well as one month on the 1gb broadband zone deal.

Now they all do a great job and am very pleased with it but wondered if they might provide in the future an inbetween data package - maybe 300mb for $10 or something (like their new combo deal).

Other answer for me and others would be the ability to share a plan with more than 1 device as I have a smartphone as well so if you could share the $19 combo amongst 2 devices this would be awesome and place 2 degrees in a unique position in the market.

Telecom CDMA had a "tandem" feature, where 2 phones shared one account, so activity on either was billed to same account. If one phone rung and wasn't answered, it handed the call over to the other phone.

It was great, and I used it extensively. Mainly so I could have a top end phone at home, and a lower cost phone for work. I would be keen for such a service now if anyone ever offered it.

Thing is I don't really want the same number for both devices.

I would like to have an account that had 2 devices feeding from the same data allowance.
phone = phone calls + Txts + data
Tablet = data

all linked to the same account.

Since a lot of people now have more than 1 device it would be so much easier to manage all devices under one logon and account.

Just hoping that 2degrees rises to the challenge to be the first to link devices (or comes up with a mid ground data package for prepay that is usable on a tablet - 300mb to 500mb per month for $10 would be great.
