...for a Vodafone expert (John?)

 

(1) My wife and I have her phones on some sort of shared plan - I pay for my plan as well as $19 a month for her (formerly Prepay) plan. She would like to upgrade to an iPhone 6 (S or non-S) from her iPhone 5. We purchased her iPhone 5 outright and she just used it on Prepay.
Is there an option for her to purchase the iPhone 6 (S or otherwise) and pay it off over 12 or 24 months on my account?

(2) My phone is a Nokia Lumia 930 Windows phone. Currently there is no "My Vodafone" app for the Windows phone, so I have to visit the Vodafone website from my phone and click on "My Vodafone" from there to see my data usage etc. That works fine, and shows me how many megabytes I have left, but there are two other gauges there - one is called "5" and says "23 used...-18 remaining" below it. The other one is called "110" and says "506 used...-396 remaining". What are these for? Voice minutes/text messages? The plan I'm on has unlimited minutes and texting.

Thanks in advance smile

Found out the name of the plan - it's a Red Share plan.

How do you select phone only given that you're already with vodafone ?

Thanks John. Will have a look when I'm home.
What do the numbers in My Vodafone represent though?

Just looked at the plans again:

http://www.vodafone.co.nz/mobile-plans/sim-only/

I think I'm currently getting some bonus data deal as I seem to have an allowance of 4.5GB, but I can't find a plan that shows this, and my invoice shows me as being on "RED+ Essentials - BYO Smartphone - open term"...what gives? Am I on a grandfathered plan with 4.5GB instead of 5GB?

Yes, sounds like you are. In May the Red + Essenentials open term plan changed from 4.5GB to 5GB and the price changed from $69 to $79.

AFAIK you can have up to 2 devices being paid off on term, the details of it I don't know, might pay to call in to retail and get it sorted, they're pretty clear generally opening time.
