Am I correct in saying.....

 

2Degrees: Up to a year.

 

Spark: Up to 3.5Gb

 

Vodafone: No rollover

 

 

 

Thinking of jumping ship smile

Yes absolutely great idea, just be careful that your account doesn't get banned posting this!

 

whenever I make a post about vodafone carry over for on account the post gets removed and my account banned!  

 

 

 

Anyway the Spark 3.5GB roll over cap is useless really might as well not have roll over if they are going to limit the amount that can be rolled over (and it's such a small limit)

With Vodafone My Flex Prepay, according to the web page (https://www.vodafone.co.nz/prepay/myflex/): , under important thing to know

 

- You can carry over up to 500 unused minutes and up to 3.5GB of unused data when your plan renews. TXTs cannot be carried over.

 

 

 

Note: I am not a vodafone customer. =-P

We've had rollover for some time or are you referring to Pay Monthly plans - where often that's redundant with Unlimited TXTs etc.

I am on a monthly plan. I am not worried about txts but data. Maybe I should just look at moving to a $19 prepay.

Because they think customers only care about minutes and text rolling over... they are behind the times Unused data should carry over. Vodafone stop stealing people's data!

Using the word stealing is not correct but removing unused data, If theft we could lay a police complaint

Hmm, wouldnt agree with the word stealing.

 

I am just interested to learn that a feature I would like ( data rollover) is available on other carriers and on Vodafone prepay but not on account.

I'm interested to understand what rolling over data means to you? i.e. do you use up all your data each month and so want to store up? Genuinely interested what the value in it is.

Loads of value in carryover data as some months you use less and some months you need more data than usual
