I have read on another forum that i could buy a iphone 3G S for $699 on the $40 plan and then port the number to XT without a early termination fee from vodafone all i would have to pay is the first month of usage on VF.
Is this true?

Na, I don't think that is true - I have read the Terms & Conditions of the contract and it says you are responsible for any early disconntection fees associated.

Here is a snippet from the contract itself:
http://www.vodafone.co.nz/about/legal-stuff/on-account-terms.pdf
You will be responsible for all
costs associated with Porting the Phone Number (including any
applicable early termination charges owed to us).

So they would send me a bill with a $350 early termination fee?

YES!!! FFS man if it were that easy everyone would be doing it, not creating all sorts of threads on here trying to figure out the best/cheapest way around it.

Surely this thread can be locked/deleted, this is pointless!
