Are the sims coming post or courier? I am suspecting the latter since the insistance of them on a street address and that couriers will typically hold for a certain day of delivery. Can you let us know which one you are using?

Folks, I've received an invitation to attend the 2Degrees media event next Tuesday. Like I've done with Telecom XT launch I will create a thread for plans and handsets.

Also if you want to ask any questions you can post here - I am sure 2 Degrees will read them before I can ask there.

Wow, courier? Way to double the cost of the campaign?

Chinwag SIMS will be sent out from the 4 August and should have all arrived with their new owners by the 14 August - at the very latest. They will be sent using our good 'ole New Zealand postal service.

Cheers!

Mauricio, my question will be regarding "on-net family" plans like Vodafone offer where a group of mobiles on 022 can communicate for a set monthly cost (personal as opposed to business though).

Other questions could probably be formulated from the 2 Degrees "suggestion" thread where there is a wishlist from forum goers.

For iPhone users with 2Degrees see: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=85&topicid=37329

It is about 95% done with just a little bit of testing to do. The IPCC file is not there as of yet, but will be back in the next couple of days
