Hi just checking there is no easy way to see all balances at once - well for me that's data and minutes?
at the moment you have to go to 2 screens to see one of each at a time, but that's fine, just confirming you can't see everything on one screen

thanks

You could try this app for your (Android) phone - works for me on Skinny.

I favor the Mathew Withers NZ Phone Account program.  IT's free if you only use it on one carrier.   I use it to monitor  7 SIM cards at present..

 

Pity that when you log in to your Skinny account it doesn't tell you when your prepay balance expires as the other carriers do..

If you're referring to NZ Phone Account  then no.  It just automates what you would do manually from a web browser..

Ive started making this app which you can download the APK for here: its not on the play store yet,

http://skinny.blake.org.nz/

 

 

 

You login using your skinny account details, once you have, it saves them on your phone. Each time you open the app you will be presented with all your balances. 

 

Its actually just the m.skinny.co.nz site made to work like an app and log in automatically, Give it a go :)

 

 

 

I promise it doesnt relay any information anywhere else but your phone's memory and skinnys website

I don't see this as a big issue, Surely you top up more than once a year? It would be nice to have thougn

 

 

 

If you top up once every 365 days you're safe

Yes but the point is everyone else lets you see your balance expiry date.  My Skinny  SIM currently is a test SIM so it doesn't used a lot..
It wouldn't take too much for Skinny to add this this to your account login info..

I think we've found the real issue here.  Just throw all those other SIMS away.

I've added a card to our development backlog but no promises on date sorry surprised

just realised the USSD code doesn't work on wife's iphone ... how does one see balance of minutes, data, and date of end of combo?

[you need to enter a selection using numberpad but there is no numberpad showing on the iphone]

USSD usually does work on iphone? Restart the phone and dial *888# again

 

other ways to check it are calling 204 or skinny.co.nz
