Everything you need to know about sharing your plan
What the heck is a sharing plan, and how does it even work? We know you probably have lots of questions, which are hopefully answered below:
1. How is a Shared 4GEE plan better value?
You pay less for a Shared 4GEE Plan than you would if everyone was on a separate 4GEE plan, or if you had separate plans for all your devices. It's like buying things in bulk from a supermarket, and getting a better deal the more you buy.
A shared plan gives you up to 20GB of sharable data for everyone to play with, and unlimited calls and texts for all the phones.
You don’t have to set everyone up at the same time. You can add people as and when their previous contract finishes.
People don’t need to get new 4G-ready phones to be on your shared plan. While older phones won’t be able to use the 4GEE network, they’ll work on our 3G network just fine.
A shared plan makes managing your family’s devices easy. And because everyone shares the same plan you only get one monthly bill.
It's impossible to go over your shared data limit by accident. We'll send everyone on the plan a text when your data is running low and another one when it has run out. We'll then send a text to everyone on the plan asking if they want to buy a data add-on. Then another text once the data's been added.
You can add devices to your plan, too. Say you’re streaming a film – if you add your phone and tablet to your shared plan you can switch from one to the other and all the data comes from the same pot.
