Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Well I'm chuffed with phone and tariff just struggling to get my bolt on put back on. Reason we stopped with O2 was due to the family Bolton we had but during the upgrade it got removed. Even after I stated that I wanted to keep it. Anyone had any joy on adding it recently ?

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

My phone with the least data on my account seems to be the lead, I never actually asked for shared data but I'd have preferred the 5GB instead of 2GB to be lead, is there any way of changing this?

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Have a look in your MYO2 http://www.o2.co.uk/myo2 under the shared data section.
From memory, there is an option in there to change any of the connected devices to the lead device.

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Hi,

 

I am really having trouble with this and getting nowhere over the phone

 

I have a 20gb O2 refresh iPhone

 

2 pay as you go iPad sim cards

 

1 500mb O2 refresh iPad

 

I simply want to share the iphone 20gb data with at least one of the pay as you go iPad sim cards and have recieved nothing but poor adivce over the phone, going in store is inconvenient due to work hours, commitments etc. 

 

I cannot see a 'shared' data bolt on to add anywhere and myO2 screens do not allow me to select a 'leader' or even share... help please!!!!

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

It looks like your iPhone is set up to share data so you need to change the tariff of the other devices to allow them to be added. CS can do this for you but only contract devices, not payg ones.

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Not sure if this thread still active. I have 10Gb data a month (24M refresh) which will start 12.6.2017 and wanted to share with my daughter but she has no monthly contract sim yet.  Can I buy her a monthly sim contract presetntly (June 2017) which will allow her to share my data or have these plans now stopped?

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

You can still share your data providing your tariff is set as a lead
Customer service can check this for you or you can set it in your MyO2.
You will then need to purchase a sharing tariff for your daughter to link to your tariff.

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Thank you. Will go to o2 CS high street as I cannot locate a pay monthly contract which allows data sharing.  Could this product now be discontinued?

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

As far as I'm aware it's still available.

Re: O2 SHARER DATA TARIFS MINI GUIDE

Thanks, presently of 2GB data allowance I only have 40mb left for 2 days but then i will have gone up to 10Gb on new contract.  I suspect best to wait to see if this will allow data sharing with daughter also on my account.

 

Another question- if I have 10Gb and want to share data with wife but she has no data sharing contract do i have to buy a new tariff for her? Her present 02 tel number will not allow data sharing (monthly 1Gb contract). The cheapest data sharing tariff appears to be £15per month but at £17 per month she can get a 6Gb contract.
