What is data banking?

Nobody likes wasting so why should your data be any different? Lebara plans now come with up to 200GB mobile data banking so you can keep your unused data each month.


How does data banking work?

If for example you get 36GB on your first month and at the end of the month you’ve only used 30GB. Instead of losing the remaining 6GB of mobile data, it will rollover to your bank where you can store it for as long as you continue your Lebara service. At expiry of a subscriber’s plan, and if they have a data bank, they have a 48-hour grace period to purchase another eligible plan, otherwise they lose their data bank balance.

What plans are eligible?

Data Banking is available on all 30 Day, Long Term (180 and 360 Day Plans) and Mobile Broadband Plans.

How to check my Bank balance?

What is data gifting?

Family member or friend low on data, or just feeling generous? You can now gift up to 10GB data every day to others on Lebara.


Who can I gift to?

A subscriber can gift (from their data bank) up to 2GB per transaction to another eligible subscriber for up to 10GB total per month.


How can I send data?

Through SMS:
A subscriber can gift data to an eligible subscriber, by sending the following SMS message to the receiving service number:

GIFT <data amount>MB <receiving service>

Eg. GIFT 200MB 0414122000
