160 character limit per text.How can I manage my mobile data on Orcon Mobile?
You will not be able to exceed the limit of your allocated data so once you have used the included data in your mobile plan you will need to purchase a data add-on for the month.
An easy way to manage your data use is to enable Wi-Fi on your smartphone.
All Orcon mobile plans have a base amount of NZ roll over data. Once this data has been used for the month, you will need to purchase a data top-up add-on in order to continue using the service. For information on how to purchase a data add-on please visit the following FAQ here.
Please note that while unused data included in your base plan will roll over to the next month and be used before your new month’s data, unused data included in the top-up add-on will expire after 30 days.
