Groucho:

old3eyes:


I wonder how long before their $9 plane becomes rollover?? 



I'm currently on their $9 prepay plan which is insane value for me given I virtually don't ring anyone or use the data because I have Wifi almost everywhere I am.  Mine's rollover as I have heaps of accumulated minutes and GBs.


Received an email from 2degrees the other day which says "We reckon our new $10 Prepay Plan would be the perfect fit for you. For just $1 extra you’ll get a total of 100 carryover minutes PLUS unlimited* calls to 2degrees mobiles. Our $9 Prepay Combo is being discontinued so if you move off this plan or don’t renew within 14 days, you won’t be able to purchase again.".  It kind of suggests to me the $9 plan will eventually be dumped however mine will renew in a couple of days.  What happens the following month is anyone's guess.



If you continue to have enough credit, the pack will continue on a monthly basis as it always has indefinitely. If you don’t topup within the grace period or manually stop the pack, then it’s gone for good.

What I don't quite follow is where they say in the blurb: "To give you even more choice and flexibility, we’ve supercharged the shelf-life of your gigs and mins. If your Plan doesn’t renew cause you’re a bit short on funds, you’ll now hang on to your Carryover Minutes and Carryover Data for 3 months. Data and minutes on active Prepay Plans are carried over for 12 months. Seems fair, right? Someone should tell the other guys"

I'm a customer of one of the skinniest "other guys" and the rollover gigs and minutes have a shelf life of 12 months regardless of whether you have an active combo. Are they taking a swipe at Vodafone or Spark?

It's referring to the grace period: if your pack tries to renew and you don't have enough credit, you used to only have 2 weeks to topup before you would lose any carried over data and minutes. We have changed that to 3 months for the new combos.
