Share data sim

IJ

I found out today you cannot share streaming data from your iPhone through your data share sims. I have updated both iPhone SIM cards to $60. Plans to share 100 gb plus free streaming, to my surprise I have used 18gb of data in  5 days using my other share data  SIM card using same service ,Tv streaming will be deducted from you Mobil total date 100 gb in my case

There may be some confusion as to what is happening.

 

Data sharing and free streaming (of selected content) are two different things

 

As long as you have two or more eligible plans on the same bill then they will share their data allowance.

 

Then for free streaming each phone will be on a plan that is or isn't eligible for this bonus (are both your phones on such a plan?)

 

Streaming also has various limits (e.g limits on viewing via a TV or no free HD streaming etc.) you may be breaking one of these limits.

 

Also free streaming will show up in the Optus App as data used however the total data remaining on your plan will not include these amounts.

I have 2 Mobil plans on 1 account  under my name shared date total 100 gb .

I also have 3 data share sims under my name on same account .

I have been using share data sim in a modem for my Apple TV the date is not streaming free even though my data sims is using phone service?

looks like I will have to use my iPhone direct  to Tv ?

I not sure if this will work either .

Dont forget My streaming was Working  fine before new contract same share sim

I think you'll find the sta share sims are sharing data. They just are not on a plan that offers free streaming. Something for someone to confirm?

 

I believe the free streaming can only be accessed on the device in question (i.e. phone or tablet). Again something to confirm.
