Team Share for Business Choice plans
In this article
What is Team Share?
Team Share lets customers on Business Choice plans share their plan’s unlimited* calls and texts to New Zealand and Aussie with up to three other 2degrees customers, per plan. Data is not included with Team Share; however, you can also set up Shared Data, which will allow you to share your plan's New Zealand data with up to five colleagues with 2degrees numbers.
What does Team Share include?
If you’re on an eligible plan you can share your unlimited* voice calls and texts to New Zealand and Australia with up to three people that have a 2degrees account for an extra $25 per person each month.
- Shareable unlimited* calls and texts to New Zealand and Aussie
- Share with up to three other people for only $25 per person each month.
Who is Team Share for?
Team Share is available to anyone on a Business Choice plan and the Retired $60 (excl GST) and above Business Select plans, the Retired $49 Business Freedom Plus plan and retired Share Everything plans that come with unlimited* calls.
How does Team Share work?
- Once you opt-in to Team Share, you become a ‘Sharer’ and can nominate up to three 2degrees numbers (or, ‘beneficiaries’) to share your calls and texts with.
- Sharing your unlimited* calls and texts to someone with Team Share is charged to the Sharer when set up, and then on bill cycles when it renews.
- Charging also applies per person the sharer adds. For example, if the Sharer adds 3 beneficiaries, a separate charge applies for each.
- Only eligible customers can be a Sharer, however any 2degrees customer, including those on Prepay, can be a Beneficiary.
- Unlimited* calls and texts (including sharing usage) applies to standard New Zealand and Australian minutes and person-to-person text only. Any premium rate numbers, other chargeable usage and additional value packs cannot be shared (for example, premium SMS, MMS, or international calls other than calls to Australia).
How do I start sharing calls and texts with my Team Share group?
You can start sharing whenever you like using either the 2degrees App, or by text. If you're a Team Member, please discuss this with your Account Holder first as they pay the bill.
To set up sharing, you need to have the right permissions. Ask your Account Holder to give you permissions if you need it.
If you have Spend Control for Business set up, make sure you’ve set your limit high enough to allow for your monthly charge for sharing calls and texts, as well as any other Add-Ons or extra spend you may have each month.

I’m on Team Share, why can’t I see sharing calls and texts in the 2degrees App?
We’ve made sharing super easy to use in the 2degrees App, so if you can’t see it, there could be a few reasons why.
- You're not on an eligible plan. If you're on a retired Business plan without unlimited* calls and texts, then you can't use Team Share.
- Unfortunately, you can't share your calls and texts on Prepay, so you won’t see the option in the App. You'll need to be on an eligible Pay Monthly or Business Choice plan to be able to share. If you’re happy to stay on Prepay and have friends or family on an eligible plan, why not see if they're happy to share their calls and texts with you?
- You haven’t got the latest version of our app installed:
