Sharing Plans allow you to share an Eligible Plan’s data with Sharing Plans purchased under the same billing account.

If you are the Customer Account Holder connected to an Eligible Plan (or have Billing Account access), you may:

  • Add up to four additional $29 Red Share plans to enable those plans to share the data of the Eligible Plan
  • Add up to five additional Tablet Share plans to enable those plans to share the data of the Eligible Plan

Sharing Plans can only be purchased under the same Billing Account as the Eligible Plan, and are not available to be purchased as standalone plans.

You must purchase a Sharing Plan in order to share the data of the Eligible Plan. Two Eligible Plans cannot share data.

If you have more than one Eligible Plan per Customer Account, you must select which plan you want Sharing Plans to connect to.

Each Tablet Share plan must be attached to either your Eligible Plan, or a $29 Red Share Plan. This means that you cannot have more Tablet Share plans than the combined total of your Eligible plan and additional $29 Red Share plans. For example, you cannot have four Tablet Share plans with one Eligible Plan and two $29 Red Share plans. 

You can only create one sharing group per billing account and all sharing connections must all be on the same billing account (i.e. not across customer accounts). The costs and details relating to each plan (including any monthly charges and additional costs) will appear on one bill.

The data that may be shared is all the data included in the Eligible Plan, plus any additional data add-ons purchased by the Eligible Plan holder ( or any member of the Sharing Group who has the billing  access).  Please note that where the Eligible Plan has a tablet plan (not a Tablet Share plan) included as part of the Eligible Plan benefits, or one is purchased this data will not be included in the shared data pool and will only be available for that tablet plan to use, in addition, this tablet plan will not be part of the sharing group.

All data, whether included in an Eligible Plans entitlements or purchased is shared across Sharing Plans and consumed on a first in first served basis. There are no individual user limits, and none are able to be set. No one user will be given priority over another.

Shared data is available to be used while in New Zealand. However, if any member of the sharing group (including the customer under the Eligible Plan) travels to a Daily Roaming country they will be able to access Daily Roaming where a daily fee is charged when they use their phone overseas, which allows them to use your plan as they would at home. Daily Roaming will automatically apply to all Sharing Plans regardless of whether those plans have billing access.

For the Black plan where Australia roaming data is included in the plan, a user on any attached Sharing Plan will also be able to use sharing capability to access data in Australia without incurring a Daily Roaming fee. If calling or TXTing is used, a fee will be incurred.

Refer to Daily Roaming Terms and Conditions for more information.

Purchasing Data

Sharing Plans must have Billing Account access to purchase additional data either through Flexi Data or re-occurring data Add-ons).

Sharing Plans do not need to have to have Billing Account access to purchase additional data through Data Angel overseas, or to be eligible for Daily Roaming when the Sharer is in a Daily Roam Country.

Billing Account access can only be given by the Account Owner (i.e. the owner of the Eligible Plan).

Eligible Plans have no data purchasing restrictions.

Adding and removing connections

If you wish to remove your Eligible Plan from the Sharing group, another Eligible Plan must be added to or amended within the same Billing Account.  This means an existing connection ($29 Red Share or Tablet Share) must upgrade to an Eligible Plan (plan transfer or re-sign – if eligible for re-sign) or another Eligible Plan added to the Billing Account.  Change Fees may apply. If for any reason (primarily relating to the timing of establishing another Eligible Plan) your billing account is without an Eligible Plan then any $29 Red Share or Tablet Share plans will have NO DATA until an Eligible Plan is assigned to the Billing Account.If an Eligible Plan removes Sharing ability mid Billing Cycle the following rules apply for the data for the remainder of that Billing Month:

  • Eligible Plans will move to an individual data allowance and will retain the balance of the group data as at the time of cancelling sharing
  • Remaining Sharing Plans will have no access to the balance of the shared data bundle and will need to be transferred an in market plan to consume data. Change Fees may apply

To maintain a sharing group there must be an active Eligible Plan for the sharing plans to be linked to. If you are considering or planning to change/remove the Eligible Plan please contact Vodafone before initiating the change. This will enable us to provide you with advice and guidance as to what your options are to continue to have a sharing group with Vodafone. Removal of an Eligible Plan without notification to Vodafone will result in the sharing connections losing access to data.
