I didn't realise Yellobucks was so lucrative, I only recently activated it on my R299 contract.

To get that R1600 after 2yrs what is the monthly contract amount you paid each month?

R1600 is a nice bonus.

Just as a little side thing what's the earn ratio on Yellow bucks, it seems if you add them all up over the life of a contract it's a decent little subsidy?

My Bf contracts always use the promo data first on the main sim.

I've got 2x R299 contracts. So about R800 worth of Ybucks earned per contract over 2 years. You get extra points if you purchase additional minutes, Sms's, etc

That looks like the leftovers of your 60 + 60 not the new contract, that may only be data shared once the old bundles expire. Could you maybe flatten that data and see if the new contract data starts to show under datashare, you have the 500gb now?

Yes, I have the 500GB.

Flatten that data? What do you mean? As in use it up?

Hmmm this is confusing, from that screenshot I understand that the package is a "MyChoice 400GB" so 400GB is normal data and should be shareable.

100GB is the promotional data and is not shareable.

Expecting a call from Mpho today so I'll ask him to clarify.
I upgraded two hours ago:-
  • 400GB + 400GB (Night Surfer)
  • 100GB + 100GB (Night Surfer)
  • Can data share 400GB
  • Contract is 36 Months can cancel anytime by paying R499 cancellation fee.
Cost per month R499

Can someone explain how data share works please? If I take the 500+500gig package, of which 100gig is shareable, how is this allocation used up?

For example, the household would have access to all data and 100gig to be shared to my mobile number. So, if the household uses up more than 100gig, does this mean I am out of data on my mobile?
400GB is sharable.
You can share up to 20 numbers.

This makes sense, that the 400gb is shareable. The 100gb is a promo bundle and night data isn't shareable.

I've actually tried data sharing before but it didn't allow me. Does anyone know why this could be? It's do another MTN prepaid number.

You got a 7 day cooling off period.

MTN Prepaid Number must be MTN PayAsYouGo. Try another MTN prepaid number to test.

How can I upgrade to this deal? Do I phone or visit a store?

Flatten the 30+30 data which it appears to be using first to force the datashare to start using the 500gb contract data
