London,  11th February, 2016– iD, the 4G mobile network from Carphone Warehouse, today launches its new Data Rollover feature becoming the only network in the UK to do this free of charge.  iD customers can now roll over any data they don’t use into the following month.

Available to all new and existing customers on a 12 or 24 month GoTo plan or a one-month GoTo SIM-Only plan, free Data Rollover will automatically be applied to these plans on the first day of customers’ billing period.

A customer’s Data Rollover allowance will always be used before any standard monthly data to ensure customers are making the most of it, so any leftover from their monthly plan will automatically go into the next month.  Monitoring and controlling data is easy with the iD app or through the My iD Account section of idmobile.co.uk.

Adam Dunlop, General Manager at iD, comments: “We’re delighted to announce the introduction of free Data Rollover on all our GoTo plans. We’ve listened to our customers who have told us they want more control over the data they use, so we’re giving them the flexibility to use data they might not use in any given month at no extra charge.

Data is one of the key considerations when choosing the right plan to suit your lifestyle, and we know data usage can vary from month to month, and can often result in higher monthly charges. This is why we’ve introduced Data Rollover, to give our customers more control over their plans and better value for money”.

iD launched in May 2015 with the aim of providing more flexible contract options tailored to its customers’ individual needs. GoTo plans start from £7 per month on SIM Only plans and £11.50 for handset plans and are available in Carphone Warehouse stores and on www.idmobile.co.uk. In addition to its GoTo plans, iD also offers ShockProof, its capped plan to prevent bill shock, TakeAway, which allows roaming in 29 countries at no extra cost and DataOnly plans for use with tablets, dongles or MiFi devices.
