Only if you have a combo loaded for the week will you get these on-net Skinny to Skinny minutes is this correct.

Skinny is actually impressing me quite a lot actually, too bad I have a 900/2100 3G phone otherwise I'd switch over. Carrier competition is basically the reason why my next Android will be quad band

Considering if you go out of city centres larger towns and cities you'll be at 2G speeds you might want to look into Skinny. $32 for 4 weeks with 480MB data plus more data/texts/calls is pretty decent

Vodafone NZ has many 3G sites that are not in city centres on 3G 2100mhz and this is reflected on the coverage map

Really ? Thats pretty decent, and cheaper than my $35 equivalent on vodafone, I hope other networks take the initiative and start to lower prices. 2Degrees must be spewing that they aren't the cheapest anymore.

Depends how much talking your going to do but Telecom's prepay TalkTextData    $20 per month    20min,    1000 txt,    200MB data  may be a better option..
