For the past few years, I have had a $19 monthly combo on my Tablet which has been great for when I am away from home and without aceess to my PC.

 

My data credit was over 10 Gig and my telephone minutes tens of hours.

 

Unfortunately I missed this month's top up and after making payment tonight, I now find that all my data and talk credits have been wiped from my account.

 

I realise that I have erred by not keeping my account up-to-date, but to lose everything by 2 days really sucks!!

I understood it was a two week period that you had, in order to pay and maintain the rollover credit. Perhaps they simply haven't processed the payment yet?

Do you have the 'new' entitlement credited?
Have you rung them up and asked?

I found 2D to have exceptionally good answer times and have always had great response whenever I've queries anything, even at midnight when I ran out of credit once myself.

At least ask... It can't hurt, right?

"If you top up your Prepay Account with sufficient Re-charge Credit while your Carryover Combo is on hold, the Carryover Combo will automatically renew and future renewals will continue to occur on the date you topped up. This becomes your new Renewal Date. If you do not top up your Prepay Account within the 14 days your Carryover Combo will be cancelled and you will need to purchase a new Carryover Combo if you wish to have it again."

I had this happen when I was being miserly with my topups after being burned with casual data rates using up $40 or so in the space of a couple of days when I had no idea I was out of pack data.

 

Since I was not leaving the credit on there other than the $1 that got left, I forgot once and lost a crapload of call time and a few 100 megs of roll over I had accumulated on that sim since it was not my primary one. They sorted it out when I called them up.

I missed the two week top up window by 2 days.

 

I called their 0800# and was told told by an American female voice: "you have lost everything and it cannot be restored"

 

I have asked that a Supervisor calls me to discuss this matter, but I am not holding my breath.............

So you missed the payment by 16 days, not two, and are hoping they will break their own rule for you.

Gutting, yes, but fair enough too!

Because the phone number is given to you on a different basis - "one year from last topup" or whatever.

Will still have credit, its just the rollover accumulation that will have expired.

Shouldn't take you too long to accumulate again as "tens of hours" and "over 10Gb" don't normally accumulate on high users accounts 👍

If you've accumulated that much stuff, it means you probably only very rarely (or never) use your plan allowance, and most months get nowhere near it.
In which case, you'd probably be better if switching to a cheaper plan or provider.
Sure, some months you will need to spend a little more when you use more than usual, but that is very rare judging by how much you accumulated already, and every other month will be saving money.

Rollover data or minutes that you never use might as well be not there.

You are correct, I rarely use the phone or data options available to me.

 

I was building up the data so that I could watch F1 on My Sky on the tablet when I am away from home base smile
