Got a txt today saying my cellphone plan is going from 10gb to 15gb a month.

 

I only use 2gb but what I do want to do is share it with a data stick or one of my staff so I dont keep having to hotspot my phone.

 

How is this not do-able.

 

I am on the one of the most expensive plans (Red+ Business) - yet other plans do have sharing capability.

 

 

 

Bah!!!

 

Rant over

I guess the Business plan has different perks (landline number) and they do have Team Share plan for business purposes.

When I joined Vodafone I was advised that I would be better to transfer my 10 connections onto consumer red share plans as they were cheaper and more suited than business red or business team share plans..

Any reason why you actually went business plan over consumer?

Landline number on my cell is the main reason.

 

And I get a nice phone every couple of years.

 

A nice simple $150 per month which works because I spend about an hour a day on the phone - mostly incoming calls from our pbx call queue.

 

 

 

I have to hotspot my phone to the carputer when i am driving and would rather pay an extra $30 per month to share my data with another sim card and have the carputer permanantly connected with a vodem or mobile hotspot.

If a landline is important then I guess.

I pay for 15gb and I get a shinny top if the line phone every 2 years. I also have an 04 landline number permanently diverted from 2talk to my mobile. ($15.99 For two local numbers).

I then share my data with 4 others..

Actually that is not a bad idea - maybe I should just buy 2degrees data.

 

 

 

With 2talk, forwarding a local number to the cellphone would be about $378 per month of tolls according to their rate card at 21c / min.

 

With the vodafone landline number on the cellphone, by forwarding from 2talk / pbx it falls into the 2000 minutes of local landline calls when you forward to a local (cell) number. Over that its only 4c a minute.

I'd like lots more. About 50gb a month would be good.

Vodafone allowed me to have my ipad on my red plan and don't charge me.

 

It may be a special that they gave me I don't know as it shows on my bill as a charge and a credit.
