Great news! We've cranked up our $16 Core Combo even more with an extra 250MB of Rollover data. For the same $16 you'll now get 1.25GB of Rollover Data, 150 NZ/AU Rollover Mins, Unlimited NZ/AU Texts & Unlimited Skinny to Skinny Mins every 4 weeks. The best thing is you don't need to do anything. The extra data and mins will appear next time your Combo renews. /Skinny

Thanks skinny!

I think Skinny did the data increase first, then 2degrees copied plus increased the minutes as well, and now Skinny has copied the minutes increase.

Good for end customers 🙂

It would be interesting to see the data on unused minutes - I never got through the original amount provided when I first signed up to this combo (60 minutes?), and continue to build each month. Not surprising given my wife and many others I call are also with Skinny.

I’m currently on 2220 carryover minutes on the $16 combo - can anyone beat that?!

(That said, the data plan is generous enough now that I’ve built up 6GB...)

Hard to find prices on Vodafones site, what I could find was Flex Pay which was $3 more expensive per month, and from what I could see the roll over is a lot more limited. I have about 6 GB on Skinny at moment.

And also bringe data can be used on any site, not just sites the phone company approves, so in summary Vodafone not a good deal for me.

My daughters have 1600 (out of a possible 1600) and 1598 - they don't really make phone calls any more - almost no data.

 

My wife has 1583 minutes (out of possible 1600) and 12156 MB Data (out of possible 14764)!  We tried to use the data on a South Island motor-home tour but there were so many places with no cell coverage we couldn't use it...

 

Oh, and I agree, Skinny is awesome which is why my wife and children are on it.  I would be too if I didn't have a work phone!  They will be very happy about the extr
