yep that is what I checked and had confirmed 3-4 times. the guy at the shop didn't really want to go into too much detail (store was really busy) but he said that is correct but we don't advertise it.

really enjoying my S3.

Im on the $89 and will 100% go back to the $39 after 6 months if its true of course.

Couldve sworn when doing my due diligence it seemed as though staying on the $89 plan was the least costly.

you will be able to change back to the $39 plan after 6 billing periods without any charge. had confirmation on the one and store. I wasn't completely sure what 6 billing periods completely meant i.e. did it have to be 6 complete months or 6 invoices. either way doesn't worry me too much. it was such a good deal.

Did you find the free monthly data appears anywhere on the 2degrees site when you login? just wanting to see confirmation it has been applied

The fine print on some of those offers does say you will loose the extras if you downgrade - bonus data and minutes will be goneburgers. Not sure if the same applies to the Touch2Pay offer.

ETA - the Touch2Pay offer bonuses runs out before 6 months anyway. Smile

I am not sure about that, I think you get the Bonus 1GB /month for 2 years for ANY plan that is $39 or more.

You're right the Touch2Pay will expire on New Year's. So less than 6 months anyway :)

You might be right - I think I misread apart of the T&C on plan changes. Smile

I find it really, really interesting that no one from 2degrees have waded in on this discussion to confirm or deny points...

I can only think this was an oversight in their T&Cs or their backend processes don't for a different T&C to apply so that are just taking the hit.

When I talked to the 2degrees store he said they were told not to tell people but that they could confirm my understanding was correct

Either way I was a prepaid customer paying about $10 a month. Now I have a contract and paying $89 a month.

Who now has a $1049 handset for free and after spending $534 (6 months x 89) can drop their plan down to a $39 plan and pay a minimal plan change charge.

Seems bit of financial screw up by 2degrees unless they are getting the phones ultra cheap and happy to get the business and customers rather than than sole focus on profit.

Don't forget that we are with them for 24 months (firstly) and they have a huge number of clients switching from other providers (secondly) and also not everybody knows about this 6 months switch back thing. So some will pay $89 for 2 years.
