Got the same problem, my subscription is due for payment tomorrow - but still no way to pay with card and the app.


I'm guessing it will all be up tomorrow.


Their projected date was Wednesday morning, and they have now reverted back to the stage they were at from 5PM on Tuesday (no topups at all, no value packs etc) - which is presumably something they need to do as part of the final pieces of the puzzle. Hopefully.

I understand these things happen and are necessary sometimes. I know this is easy to say after the fact and from the outside, but the normal course of a big bang change is just more slippage of deadlines and prolonged outage. If a week is budgeted, maybe basic service in 10 days to two weeks and ironing out bugs for months.


The 2 degrees site says to go in store and what do you know, went in today, "We can't do anything, all our systems are down" Will see if I can upgrade my plan tomorrow, I am not holding my breath I will be able to do it though.


The complete lack of notification for customers was also pretty poor, to put it mildly.

Their webpage "your 2degrees" seems to be up and running again, but I can't see the shared data (which device has use how much data) in the new system.  Anyone know where it is.  I also hit a glitch where I looked through the help and then couldn't figure out how to get back to my balances again.  Looks prettier than the old interface though.

I still can't login to Your 2Degrees. On my first attempt I got this message:


"Your 2degrees has evolved, and to experience the new improved Your 2degrees, we'll need you to create new login details. The main change you'll notice is that instead of using your 2degrees number to log in, you'll now be asked for your email address. You'll use your existing Your 2degrees password, but we'll need you to choose a new account PIN. You'll use your PIN every time you speak to us, so try to pick something you'll remember. The new registration will take less than a minute, and then you'll be good to go."




Ok so then I did that, set up a PIN and verified my email, and then when I try to login with any combination of my email or phone number with either my old password or the new PIN I get:


"The entered username or password is invalid"




Edit: Resetting my account password through the "Forgot your password" link seemed to have fixed the issue however. Whew!

All working here for me. Had to go through the "change login details" process, and then only use the new email address supplied. Didn't seem to work with my mobile number but I was using a password vault tool so it could have fudged it.


the new / refreshed account page looks good, a lot clearer in my mind and the iOS app loads up happily enough.


Wish they'd join Fibre + Mobile into a single bill and a single pane of glass though!




Edit: Spelling

The new web portal working for anyone?


I changed my login credentials to email and after verifying it let me log in OK. But updating the app on my phone seemed to cause a issue logging in when logged in on another device. And now the website tells me, "You don’t have any services associated with this login yet. To add one, visit our Pay Monthly Plans page or our Online Shop for Prepay. If you have just registered or associated a connection, it may take a minute or two for your account to show up. Please login again." And the app just says there's a connection problem and won't sign in at all. 




I've tried logging in again and explored the add services option obviously. 




Ugh! I just want to pay my bill without having to talk to anyone!




[edit] Now it's saying it's offline due to a system upgrade. Please check tomorrow...

Yes, i feel your pain. 


I logged in and verified my new email address association, then logged in using that email address using my old password... it authenticated fine, but looks like a system in meltdown to me.  It redirects to a secure dashboard webpage, though doesn't actually serve up any information.  I think lunchtime may not be a good time to test the 'improved' portal.

Shared my screenshots on the 2degrees Facebook page. Thats been deleted and the only message they have there is this:


UPDATE: 1pm 24 Feb
Great news! Following a systems upgrade we’ve now got almost everything back up and running including our new 2degrees App.


Which is clearly not true. 


They should keep people better updated on what is going on.

latest update


Update 2:25pm
Our internal upgrade is over but we are experiencing some problems on the 2degrees App, Your 2degrees and our Online shop so you won’t be able to access these at the minute.


We hope to have things sorted soon.



In the meantime our Care team have been really busy so if it’s not urgent, please try calling again later.


The team at 2degrees

I have two 2D SIM cards.  One for a phone and one for a Tablet. Previously I just entered the  phone number and password into the app and logged in etc.  I have now down that for the phone via a email login   which works OK  but for the life of me I can't do this for the number on the tablet.. Doesn't help that "


"Your 2degrees and online store is unavailable"

I have an android 5.1.1 tablet  with no sim cards (wifi only) Initially it had errors but said restart and try again. It then worked. My Windows 10 laptop and 2degrees mobile work intermittently ......I suspect only one can be logged on at a time.

I just managed to get into with my app on my phone.  It looks like exactly the same one as before.  No added features for the customer I can see (yet).  Email logon instead of phone number.  Did they do a roll back (?).
