Thanks but my total usage (with $6 data packs) is around $100 a year so those plans aren't useful

These plans seem reasonably competitive with Telecoms TalkTextData bundles.

I was thinking of changing to Telecom, but these accounts seem pretty interesting.

I have a few questions to consider though.

1) I'm guessing my credit stays if I change from Supa Prepay to Prepaysmart.

2) I understand I lose my topup bonus of free weekend minutes.

3) I understand I KEEP my free 10% topup bonus (until feb).

4) Do we still get Topup data packages if we run out on prepay smart?

5) Do we get to keep our free 100 MB topup bonus (until april)?  (edit: nope, terms say Supa Prepay only)

Interesting times. Competition is awesome!

4) No but there is a data rate per meg after the data bundle runs out $0.20 per MB

5) No

Hope that helps

Not related to Prepay Smart (delete this post if need be) but nice to see the NZBestMate is added to the on account smart plans! Just need to wait for my plan to renew

That does help, thanks! Without a data topup, it might be a no go for me at the moment, but that;s the beauty of prepay - I could always try it out and change back if it doesn't work out.

Thanks again.
