Data Binge allows you to buy sessions of unlimited data usage. You can choose between 10 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, or 12 hours. To buy a Data Binge you need to be an active Skinny Mobile customer, with enough credit to buy a Data Binge session. Tethering and hotspotting is not included.
A Data Binge session starts from the moment you purchase it, and will continue running until it expires. You cannot pause your Data Binge session once it has started. Any Data Binge sessions purchased while another Data Binge session is active, will not start until the end of your current active session. Once your Data Binge session has finished, normal mobile data usage will apply.
We will send you two Data Binge expiry notifications via the Skinny Mobile App and text message – one sent 2 minutes prior to expiry, and a second one sent once your session has expired. If you have bought more than one Data Binge session, you will receive your notifications at the end of your last purchase.
It's really easy to start a Data Binge, just make sure you have enough credit. Skinny Mobile customers can use the Skinny Mobile app (make sure it’s the latest version) or text DATABINGE to 2424. In the Skinny Mobile app, tap on Data Binge and choose how long you want to Data Binge. Yeeeew.
This is what it looks like on Skinny Mobile app
NZ personal use on mobile phones only. Not for tablets, tethering or hotspots. Available on Skinny Mobile app, or text DATABINGE to 2424. Skinny terms and charges apply. For full terms see our General Offer terms.
You can purchase it without a plan, anytime, as long as you have sufficient credit on your Skinny Mobile account. Just keep in mind that once you run out of your Data Binge, normal data usage and charges will apply.
Tethering and hotspotting on Data Binge is not included. This is to provide an even and fair quality of service.
No, it does not renew. However, if you are after another boost of data simply purchase the amount you would like again.
Because we tell you upfront what the duration of the session is that you're buying, it's your responsibility you don't run over. You need to be especially careful if you're on Standard Rates, but have a threshold auto-topup set up. This would mean that once your Data Binge session runs out, if you keep on using data on Standard Rates, your account will repeatedly top up every time you reach the threshold.
If you have a Skinny Mobile app, your account is set up to receive Data Binge notifications both via the app and text message. If you want to change this, log into your Skinny Mobile dashboard, choose Settings, and click “Change your notifications”. Don’t forget to time your Data Binge session responsibly – if you miss the notifications, additional data charges may apply.
Unfortunately not. You can only use the Skinny Mobile app, or text DATABINGE to 2424
Yes. It's a great way to get a top up of max speed data when you have used all the max speed data in your plan.
