... You're also told clearly $5 daily usage applies in a TXT when you land...
Just back from a week in Sydney - the usual texts on landing did not appear - I am wondering if they have been discontinued, creating the (more-or-less correct) impression of a seamless service. Travelling to AU and USA regularly - the $5 deal is terrific.
I did not get those in Australia - although I may have had them in the US. Not sure - seems like ages ago already!
