I'm trying to set up shared data on 2degrees, so my home alarm shares the 750MB data included in my plan. I use no data on my main phone so it makes sense to share it.

I sent a txt to 747 from my phone with the cell number of the alarm. Nothing happened. No reply, nothing in either account online. Anyone know what's up?

I know I could call 2degrees support and they'd probably fix it, but I'm at work, so it'd have to wait until later.

Im guessing that it is on a plan and not prepaid?
And did you include the word share in your text to 747?

Ah that's the problem, I forgot to write SHARE. I'd have expected a reply saying "you did it wrong" but I got no reply.

I had a little spare time so I called 2degrees and they set it up for me in a few minutes. Sorted :)

They seem to be good at doing that.

Did you put "share" in front of the number in the text?

My opinions are purely my own and are not at all those of my employer 2degrees.

The notification txt said I need to reboot my device for it to take effect. The SIM is in a home alarm that's in a metal box in the ceiling cavity, and is battery backed up. It may reboot itself, I have no idea. Do I really need to reboot to enable data sharing? Because I really have no idea how to reboot it.

If its like a car GPS tracker, texting it the APN settings again will make it reconnect and get onto having internet instead of being blocked after topping the sim card up.
