UPDATE: 25/07/2012

I had this app charged at the lowest possible tier with the hope it would pay off my App-Hub subscription but that does not seem to be the case. Therefore I have decided to eat the loss and make it free. Enjoy!

UPDATE: 25/05/2012

Added Data Sharing capability

UPDATE: 25/02/2012

The Pro Version with Balance-Displaying Live Tile is now in the marketplace.


Data Sharing (Share and Receive)
Voucher Capability (Multiple Devices)
Me2U / U2Me / RingMe Capability
Value Pack Add/Remove
Account Balance Retrieval
Live Tile Displaying Data/Text/Voice/$$

Pro Version - Zune Marketplace Link


This app allows a Graphical User Interface (GUI) to be used when adding or removing 2° Value Packs from your mobile account. It works with both Pay Monthly and Prepay accounts. Note that due to Microsoft terms and conditions there are no links to the Voice (and therefore Combo) packs in this app. 

(Note: Image below is of the now redundant free version, there are no ads in the Pro version which replaced the free version - as free)

So when you open the App for the first time (or anytime) this is the screen you're presented with. All the buttons are self explanatory. So if we pick the 1GB Data Pack button we will get the following screen. 


Here we are shown what the pack gives us, how much it costs and how long it lasts. We can either opt to buy the pack, or stop an existing auto-renewal of this pack. If we opt to buy the pack the app will feed your phone the commands it needs to construct the text. 


Due to limitations of the WP7 OS the app cannot automatically send the text, so the user has to do it. This allows you one final chance to opt-out of buying the selected Value Pack. 

Microsoft App policies specifically forbid any app from linking to, or promoting mobile voice plans. 

Any comments please email me: or PM me here. 


For those who use WP7 and 2° I would appreciate both feedback and reviews.

1 More app download until I hit 50! If I had charged the same as the Vodafone app I would be able to buy Skyrim with the proceeds now!

Just wanted to post in celebration somewhere nerdy enough to understand my joy!

Bump - Update July 2012

The app is now free, and the ad-supported free version has been removed from the marketplace. This is because it was not making enough money, it needed to reach $200 US before MS would pay me and our estimates were that it would not reach that by the time subscription to App Hub recurred. Therefore I have decided to eat the loss and make it free.

To those who used the free version you will have to download this one separately, it's not an update
