Contract Term Differences

The longer the payment term, the lower the payments so if you choose the 36 month term your total monthly cost will be more affordable.

However sometimes, our 24-month plans provide you a discount off the cost of the device so this may lower the monthly Interest Free amount you pay.

Interest Free Payment Balance/How it appears on a bill

You can check the Interest Free Payment charge, remaining balance, and number of payments under the Itemisation section of your monthly bill.

It will display the amount paid per week or month as well as the balance remaining and amount of instalments it will take to pay off your phone. These charges are not subject to GST.

You can also view how much you're paying each month and when your payments will cease in My One NZ online - it's listed under Your plan > Plan & Add-Ons.

Your final Interest Free charge will be removed from your account automatically once the balance is paid off.

If you decide to cancel your Interest Free payments for your mobile phone, you can do this by calling us on 777, or 888 for Business plan customers, from your mobile anytime during the 12, 24 or 36 month term of your instalments.
