Okay, so i have a question and it may seem dumb, but it's worth a shot.

Do these minutes work to telecom phones too, since you're using the same network and stuff, or no?

If not will you consider adding telecom to this deal?

yes, i realise that. but i figure that since it goes through telecoms network that it wouldn't cost them anything to include telecom too.

it was more of a suggestion really.

Many of 2degrees calls go through the Vodafone network but it costs them. Remember skinny is a seperate company to Telecom and they are buying wholesale from Telecom's network just like Telstra or Digital Island

It's a fair question, as far as I know you can have a Vodafone on net bestmate to a Telstra number as it is an MVNO. When Slingshot operated through Vodafone you could use a bestmate to one of their numbers too.

Telecom - owned by not ruled by.  We're on our own in a tiny office above a pub.  

The offer is Skinny to Skinny only.

I note the on-net Skinny to Skinny offer ends 30 April 2012. Perhaps to differentiate yourself from your competitors this on-net offer could be extended or perhaps a certain amount of free on-net minutes given to each customer per month.

John, Vodafone still has two best mate offers currently don't they. One for on-net at $6 per number per month and the other Off-net at $10 per number per month. Up to a maximum of three numbers.

I think they changed it to any nz number though instead of just vodafone numbers.
