Retired - Prepay Smart


These plans are supported but no longer for sale - you cannot sign up, resign or transfer to them. However, you can continue to use your mobile, make changes to your account, and buy or change Add-Ons as normal.

If you're on one of our old Prepay plans and we retire this plan, or we think one of the Prepay plans that we're currently selling would be better for you, then we may move you to a new plan of similar or better value. We'll let you know about your new plan, and will post any changes to your plan on our website.

If you're currently on Prepay Smart, you may get moved to Prepay Carry Over $19 so you can get the benefits of our latest plans. Your Prepay Smart renews on a calendar month, while the new Prepay Carry Over $19 renews every 30 days.

So to make up for those 5 extra days, we won't move you onto Prepay Carry Over $19 until your current bundle is at least 5 days old. We’ll then give you a brand new Prepay Carry Over $19 plan so you'll have your full entitlements to use for the next 30 days.

What's more, any data or minutes you have left in your Plan will now carry over if you keep your plan active. On your new Plan, you'll also get free weekend calling to Vodafone NZ mobiles and minutes and TXT’s to standard numbers in Oz as well as NZ. We'll let you know when you’ve been moved over so you know when you can start using these great new benefits.

Unlimited TXTs are not for re-selling or using for commercial gain, auto-dialling, machine to machine communications (including by using your SIM card in any other device) or any other activity that might not be viewed as ordinary personal usage.
