With skinny dropping the price of their $30 prepay to $26 (1gb non-carry, 300min carry, unlimited text), this price point becomes a more obvious a hole in 2degrees prepay offerings.



Vodafone also has a similar plan (1gb,200min,unlimited text, all non carry over), and Spark has less data and minutes but free Spotify (750mb, 150 minute, unlimited text)



If this is introduced, I'd like to request that carry over data and minutes be transferable between prepaid plans, like Skinny has.

Edit: This doesn't count. Postpaid and limited time promotion. Plus Vodafone already offers $29 Postpaid (1gb, 200min,unlimited text).

Hurry. Join our $29 Freedom plan by 31/10 and enjoy 1GB Carryover plan data every month! New customers from November will get 750MB/month.

Yeah. They definitely have a gap to fill, otherwise people are going to move.

I didn't know Skinny supported that?  (I know they support credit transfers)

Yeah, They do, Its pretty neat.

"Included Rollover Minutes are available to use for the full 30 days of your Combo. If you have any unused Rollover Minutes after 30 days they will rollover into your next 30 day Combo provided your Combo auto-renewed at the end of its cycle. If your $16 or $26 Combo failed to auto-renew at the end of its 30 day cycle your Rollover minutes will be frozen. To continue using these activate a new $16 or $26 Rollover Combo. You can keep and use all your Rollover Minutes for 12 months from purchase."

Basically if you change from the $26 combo to the $16 one you get to keep the rollover minutes you had from the $26 one and use them. You don't have to like transfer them or anything, It's all automatic.

Ah, sorry. I mis-read the OP. I was thinking "transfer" meant sharing between different subscribers.
