Your first bill

When you first join 2degrees, we assign you a bill date. This is the date you’ll receive your mobile bill every month. We charge in arrears for Pay Monthly mobile so this means your first bill will be for less than normal, as it will be a partial charge from the date you activate until your bill date.

Then, your second bill will have your full month’s worth of charges from your bill start date.

If you purchased a new device on Interest Free repayments when you joined us, you'll get your first monthly repayment amount included with your first bill. This will be for the full monthly repayment amount, not a pro-rated amount.

Your new SIM

Whether you’ve got a trusty physical SIM card you stick into your phone, or you’re leading the charge with eSIM, we’ve set up handy guides for each.
