I fail to see the advantages of anyone switching to black and white from Vodafone? The plans seem exactly the same, however black and white customers don't get the Vodafone pmoros... what's the point?

Following on from Simon, I also don't see much of an advantage, other than 30-day terms and subsidies on phones without having to sign long-term contracts.

Most of the offerings are pretty much what Vodafone sell.

Great Questions Guys,

With regard to Prepay, We feel that prepay is costing New Zealanders far too much, so we offer minute and text bundled plans so that you get better value for money without being locked in, Also, you have to pay full retail price for your mobiles, with us its only ever wholesale for the mobile, so you get great rates, no strings and cheap mobiles. A complete package.

With regard to Vodafone and our plans being similar, We offer no terms and we charge by the second after the first minute, you wont get that with Vodafone, Also you are included on their on net calling and texting rates so benefits are definately there.

Thanks guys, feel free to fire some more questions my way.
