Yorkshirekid: No no - not as bad as Telecom. I've been with VF for years and am now going to switch to TC because their iPhone5 plan is about the same as I currently have with VF. With my 32GB iP4 I pay just over $40 for 265MB data and more mins and txt than I need. It's a plan that suits me. With their new plan I get double and triple what I need and I have to pay $80.

Why can't I keep my same plan?

So TC have a $39 plan that suits my personal needs - makes sense to switch.

I don't get Telco's these days, they don't seem to talk to their customers. Recently, after being with Orcon since they started I switched to Slingshot since they messed things up with their Genius rollout. Switching to SS meant I paid less and got more (and faster). The same thing is going to happen again when I go to TC mobile. Do I care - not a bit. Does my wallet care - oh yes!


Why go to TC??  It'll be Vodafone in 6 months..

So, buy outright, and you have 24/7 choice to stay or change from day one

I'm on the old smart2 plan and had no intention of ever giving up my 3gb/mth data but I have to say the XT open plan $59 plan is making me think, 500mins/mth would redefine how I use my phone, trade off is I would need to better manage my data usage but that is probably the easier option plus there is the $20 addon option if need be
