Benjip: I received the TXT too, I'm on the iPhone 60 plan (3G not 3GS). Hopefully it's some kinda deal to upgrade to the 3GS - I want video recording so am tempted to buy either the 3GS or a new iPod nano.


Nope


Oi! I thought you didn't know about this top secret experience? 

Come on, it's never been like Johnr to give a straight answer.
Trolling answers are more like it IMO...

Wow so the 'secret' is out - it's some lame thing called 'v box' which is basically a small web portal where you can enter competitions and get minor discounts on crap phones. You'd think that they'd launch such a portal with something better than 'save $150 on this $900 handset that would be $300 from the US'.

I didn't get a text. And they're trying to convince me to renew my contract? Not much incentive. Oh well.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

At the moment the competitions are:

1. Win one of 250 double music passes to the Vodafone NZ Music Awards in October
2. VF are giving away $200 of credit
3. Win tickets to Air NZ Cup matches in Auckland and Christchurch
4. Giving away a NZ music CD every day in October
5. 5x Nokia 5320 phones to give away


Plus my "personal" offers are discounts off new phones (Nokia 5800 and 5320, SE T707), $100 off upcoming Acer Aspire One 531 3G netbook, winning a table for 10 at the VF NZ Music Awards, a free track to download each day but they are first come, first served (3000 each day).


Nice gesture, but nothing there appeals to me.

Can't be Vbox - it's been around for about 3 years.

Well it is, it's what I've just signed up to. It's called v.box and the website is vbox.co.nz

Interesting - maybe the "secret" is that they're opening it up to more people.

I've had the vbox for a few years now and haven't found anything really cool in there. I've entered the comps of course, but they seem to have removed most of the comps this month....
