old3eyes:michaelmurfy:lucky015: Interesting to see
I have been recently eyeing up these $19 plans myself since moving off a Vodafone plan onto 2 Degrees prepay a few months ago.
With the lack of decent coverage around my house from 2D and comparatively high standard prices of Vodafone it now leaves Telecom as a very decent option for me, However the plan cancelling after being unable to be renewed is sad to see as it renders it almost useless to me because I am unable to predict when I'll be able to top up.
$10 Top Ups and $5 Simcards however are both very nice to see and something that would be nice to see adopted across the board, I seem to remember 2 Degrees having cheap simcards which does not seem to be the case now.
You have 33-34 days to give Telecom $19 somehow (aka, a month and 3 days) - You can topup anytime, you don't need to sell your soul, you don't need to sell your firstborn each and every time, just go down to some shop or use your debit card and top up, there is plenty of time.
Here's hoping this doesn't have to be explained again on each page.
Also, you'll get many texts alerting you to topup, or use the Calendar on your phone to remind you near when you get paid.
Still doesn't explain what happens after October 31?? Are there going to be no $19 ~ $20 prepay plans. No one has said anything about this??
Presumably the promotion ends and that plan is no longer available for people to sign up to. If you already have it then you can keep getting it every month.
The day after 31st October is 1st November, which is usually when Xmas offers start coming in from the Telcos. Who knows what they are going to be but they are usually pretty good.
