Sharing your data with other plans

This support article will give you key information about sharing data with other plans. You’re able to pool the included data of up to 10 phone, mobile broadband and tablet plans on your account.

How to share data with other plans.

Data is automatically shared between eligible plans on the same account. You’re unable to share data with plans that aren’t on your account.

If you’d like to share data with someone, they can transfer ownership of their plan to you. When the transfer is complete, their plan will be under your account.

If the person you'd like to share with doesn't have a plan with Vodafone, you can apply to sign them up to a new plan under your account.

You can see the plans that are shared on your account through My Vodafone. To opt-out of sharing, give our team a call on 1555.

Which plans are eligible for sharing?

If you signed up to a Red phone plan from 21 July 2014, your plan is eligible for sharing. If you signed up to a Mobile Broadband plan from 28 June 2016, your plan is eligible for sharing. Our Tablet plans are also eligible for sharing.

If you’re not sure whether your plan is eligible for sharing, give our team a call on 1555.


How to manage access to the pool of data.

If you’re the account holder, you can use Data Control to restrict which plans have access to the data pool. Data Control is accessed through My Vodafone.

Will the plan that has restricted data still be able to use their included data?

If you’ve restricted another plan’s access to the pool of data, they won’t be able to access mobile data. 

Will the plan that has restricted data still be able to use data when connected to a Wi-Fi network?

Yes. Restricting data through Data Control only applies to the plan’s mobile data. 


Additional information.

Can I share Data Add-ons?

Yes. Data Add-ons will be automatically added to the shared data pool.

How many plans can I share with?

You’re able to share the data of up to 10 mobile phone, mobile broadband and tablet plans.

Is additional data shareable?

Yes. If you exceed your total data inclusions, 1GB additional data for $10 will be automatically added to the shared data pool.

Is the one month of unlimited data shareable?

No. If you’ve connected a new service that’s eligible for one month of unlimited data, only that service will be able to use it.

Can I share data while accessing $5 Roaming?

Yes. Your pool of data will continue to be shared while using $5 Roaming.

The $5 daily fee is charged for each service that uses $5 Roaming. For example, if you have 3 services on your account and 2 of them use $5 Roaming on the same day, then $10 in daily fees will be charged to your account.

Terms and conditions.

If you have more than one Vodafone plan that supports sharing on your billing account (up to a maximum of 10) the data allowances on those services will automatically combine into one pool which will be shared between eligible users. Any existing international calling allowances on your account are not shareable with this plan. You can find out which plans support sharing or you can opt-out of sharing altogether at any time by calling 1555.
