Seeking New Zealand’s Crustiest 2G phone

Seeking New Zealand’s Crustiest 2G phone

Inbox x
You know those phones - held together with sticky tape, permanently plugged in to a power cable, cracked screens.

We want these phones.

On March 15, 2degrees is switching off its 2G network. It’s time. Customers want more speed, more data, more video content and for that we need to say goodbye to 2G phones forever.

To mark the occasion, 2degrees is giving away a host of goodies, including a Samsung S9, the latest smartphone that offers Wifi Calling, only from 2degrees.

We’ll also have daily spot prizes for those customers who can show us their crustiest, nastiest 2G phones.

And while we’re taking photos of them, why not bring them and recycle them? Come in to any 2degrees store and you can drop off your old handsets for a proper disposal and help support both the environment and the community.

To enter the competition, simply take a photo of the oldest phone you can find and post it to our Facebook page or on Twitter with the hashtag #crusty2g and we’ll pick out the best each day for prizes and treats. And if you take a photo of yourself dropping off the phone at a 2degrees store you’ll get two entries to win.

Simple. Just like us.

So raid Grandma’s glove box, dig out those old phones and get snapping because on March 15, the 2G network is history.
