Ive just been emailed this today. In the interests of interesting 'wake up' content I am publishing the link though I deplore spam and am in no way connected to Voda - except in being a customer. Had the content of the email link been boring then I wouldn't be so happy at this time of the morning - but the eyeball movie is cool and gross - a fantastic thing to watch whilst munching on your breakfast.

You must be registered on the vodafone website and when you registered you did not untick the box happy to receive promotional information.

cool! A question then - as you seem to be well versed as far as Telco's go, so maybe you can help me. I have a reasonably old prepay - does the deal let me, as an existing customer, get a new fone too?

The deal is to tradein a working connected 025/027 phone, and I have just read the information which I am sure you can do. it says you goto to on Acc to a personal plan. No Contract though.

Thanks for that. Looked at it. So i get nothing for being an 021 customer, instead Telecom customers get rewarded... Weird.

No its not weird at all, Its only the way you are looking at it is weird. Companys around the world have being doing it for years. why not buy an old 025 phone on prepay trade it in. Goto on acc no contract so it can be deactivated anytime (on bill cycle date) and there you have yourself a $300 phone. slip your prepay SIM in and you are away. Its not that hard. My mum has a old 025 phone. Far out what a brain wave. I am going to go get one now.

Thanks for that, but I do understand the trade-in/up deal, the point I'm raising is that I know Vodafone has competitions, deals and so forthe which it offers its customers, but so does Telecom, but why would you want to reward your oppositions customers WITHOUT rewarding your own loyal followers in the same context (such as myself!;-) . Wouldn't a better way to do it be to do the trade-in deal, and offer something for your own customers in the same promotion?

Vodafone have had numerous deals over the past couple of years where they have offered their loyal customers deals to upgrade. They offered existing customer substancial dicsounts to upgrade to Live! phones on probably half a dozen occasions, they offered something like $500 off GX30 phones late last year and I've had several rebates on my account of several hundred dollars on several occasions as well. Most of these deals (such as the discounted Live! phones) did not require a contract to be entered into. Try and squeeze a deal out of Telecom and they'll want you to sign up for another 3 years in most cases for a cheap and/or free phone.

They obviously have criteria for sending out these deals, I can only assume you either haven't been with Vodafone for long or do not meet the criteria for such deals.

No matter what vodafone do there are people that are never happy, Remember that ad on TV with the Rolls Royce fly through the air, They had complaints about that. The Rolls was stuffed before it went through the air.
