I have a galaxy s4 (telecom nz rom) on 2 degrees. Can I use this as a snapper card? I just bought a regular card yesterday for 10 then I realised maybe I could of got a snapper sim. Does it work with s4 yet. How much are the sims? Can I transfer the balance of my card or keep my card and have them linked to the one account?

No, you need a handset with the appropriate firmware supporting the required secure calls. either get one from 2degrees or flash a valid ROM.

You can't have a "shared account". You can transfer the balance from a card to the phone.

Ahh... Thanks. So it's doable but highly annoying.

Having a "shared" account is impossible. The balance is stored on your card so there is no possible way this could ever work.

kiwijunglist: Does it work with s4 yet.


According to the Snapper website they still haven't got it working with the S4

The last time I asked I was told "Christmas".  They did not specify which Christmas ;)

That's pretty disappointing it will be closer to the release of the s5 when the s4 is ready.

Yeah, I have to say I'm not overly impressed about the performance of Snapper on this model.

One of the reason I'm still with 2 Degrees is that I'd like to use my phone in place of my snapper card.
