O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Inspired by a recent post and because there has been a bit of confusion about this I've made a "Quick" guide for The O2 Data Tarifs...Hope you find it useful! Smiley Happy

 

 

What do I need to set up

 

a Sharer Plan?

 

 

The owner of the leader device needs to be:

 

 

On an O2 Refresh Airtime Plan taken out after 28 February 2014 with 1 GB or above and a Shared

Data Bolt On. If you take out a new O2 Refresh tariff, you can choose this Bolt On from the start. If

you’re already on a compatible O2 Refresh tariff,you can swap your normal data Bolt On for a

Shared Data Bolt On.

Registered on My O2

 

Each member device needs to be:

On a new O2 Refresh or compatible Sim only tariff

Registered in the leader device owner’s name and My O2 profile. The accounts

 

 

 

What Is It / Who can have it?

 

There are a number of different tariffs available for Sharer Data and these are known as Sharer Plans. There are two main types of tariff for customers that want to create a Sharer group: Leader tariffs (also known as ‘Leader Sharer Plans’) and Member tariffs (also know ‘Member Sharer Plans’). Details of these are listed below:

 

Only the Leader's data allowance is shared. Other additional products & services - such as O2 Travel - can be added to, or removed from, individual accounts (either Leaders or Members) without any impact on the Sharer group. These products & services will only be available for the mobile number to which they were added so other connections within the group will not be able to use or benefit from them.

This also applies to data roaming caps. Adding a cap, or opting out of it, only affects that individual mobile number so any other connections within the group need to be updated individually as required.

Only UK data can be shared. If the Leader of a group is roaming, their Sharer Data allowance will still be available for all Members to use from the UK. If a Member is roaming, they will not be able to use the Leader's allowance and the standard data roaming charges for their price plan will apply.

Out of allowance charges apply as set out in the applicable price plans for all Leader and Member connections.

 

Leader Sharer Plans

 

Leader Sharer Plans are compatible with the following Q1 14 tariffs with 1GB or above:

• 24M Refresh (including 24M / 8GB / CCA / Staff / 4G)
• 24M SIMO (used only in conjunction with Refresh)
• Refresh Data Only
• 24M SIMO Data Only (used only in conjunction with Refresh)

 

All Leaders must have a Q3 14 Sharer Data bolt-on in order to share their data. If a customer has taken out a Q1 14 tariff with 1GB or above between 28th February 2014 and 10th November 2014, they will need to swap their core data bolt-on for a Sharer bolt-on.

  Member Sharer Plans

 

Member Sharer Plans are available as either Voice & Text or Access to Share Data-only variants.

Voice & Text (all with unlimited calls & texts):

• Refresh (24 month) - £15.00
• SIMO (12 month) - £15.00
• SIMO (30 day) - £18.00

Access to Share Data-only (all with 100 texts):

• Refresh (24 month) - £6.00
• SIMO (30 day) - £8.00

 

 

Note- Please bear in mind that offers and tariffs keep on changing so there may be more tariffs to be added or removed in the future

Yes, that is an excellent guide - thanks for posting it!

 

By the way - where did you get this information from in the first place?

 

Another question though: In the "Member Sharer Plans" section - do the "Voice and Text" plans you listed there have access to the 4G network?

hi @Anonymous 

 

Look at my signature Smiley Wink

All the new tariffs are 4g now, but it will obviously depend if 4g is available where you are.

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Good to finally see some pricing information on there too.

Not bad prices but if you shop around there are cheaper options (non shared data so depends so depends how much each person uses) out there.

But a fair idea never the less

Talking about the pricing @Anonymous mentioned, I presume they will need amending every time they change... @Anonymous ?

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Am I reading that correctly....
Someone sharing my plan has to pay £15 just to share my allowances....?
