Noticed today that The Warehouse and Harvey Norman no longer appear to stock handsets for Skinny.


My wife is looking for a new basic handset and it looks like the number of retailers has been reduced. Anyone else noticed this?

The Warehouse and Noel Leemings have stopped selling Skinny due to it being the biggest competitor of Warehouse Mobile. Makes sense...

Harvey Norman have never really been serious about Skinny, they would much rather sell postpaid plans which they make commission on.. The options left are JB Hifi, supermarkets or the Skinny Online Store (Free overnight shipping FTW)
