Sweet standard rates

20c Illustration F

We’ve got pretty skinny calling, texting and data rates. We make it easy with a very simple flat rate of 20c per standard text, per minute and per MB of data. If you want to send a PXT/MMS, it’s 50c.

Other rates

Overage rates

Once you’ve used all of your active Combo’s included minutes or texts you’ll be charged our overage rates.

  • 4 Weekly Prepay Combos overage: 20c per min and 20c per text 
  • All other Combos overage: 43c per min and 8c per text

We don’t have data overage at Skinny because we don’t want you chewing through all your credit. So if you run out of data on your Combo your data will stop. Just buy a data Add-On to get going again.

Voicemail rates

You’'ll be charged 18c per call to our voicemail service, regardless of if you’'re on standard rates or a Combo (except the $46 Combo).

Don't want voicemail?
Skinny provides an answering service that will let you record a personalised message that callers will hear when you're not available, but they can't leave a message.

Premium SMS Rates

If you text to short codes a lot, enter competitions or use text based services and want to see the costs before you partake.

Premium Voice Rates

If you use premium voice services like 018 or place the odd punt with the TAB, check these premium rates.

 

Details

Minutes are for voice calls to mobiles on any NZ network and to standard NZ landlines (excludes premium rate numbers and international calls). 
Texts are standard person-to-person NZ texts only (excludes premium rate numbers, short codes and international texts).
If you're on a Combo and you use all of your included minutes or texts you'll pay overage rates for any extra calls or extra texts. 
If you use all of your Combo's included MBs, your data will stop. To use extra data you can choose to buy a Data Add-On or wait until your combo renews. 
If you deactivate your Combo and have used all your included data, you will be charged the standard rate for any extra data that you use. 
For even better value try one of our Monthly or Weekly Combos.
