I'm just about ready to make the jump to skinny but a couple of issues cause me to pause. Knowing that skinny reps visit here I thought I would post my requests for their comment/update.

1/ I would really like an online credit card payment option. I understand that this is coming - any update on this?

2/ In the process of designing said payment portal, is it possible to make it remember my credit card details? I still have to enter my details everytime I top up on Telecom. Noticed yesterday that the NZPost site now remembers my details, trademe has had this ability for years. An "auto topup" like 2talk is something that I would probably use if available.

3/ Any chance of a tax invoice being generated from the payment portal? I have given up calling telecom customer service every time I top up. Instead I just buy in amounts less than $50 and do a screen grab.

The implementation of these features would make my life a bit easier, I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Like you I am ready to jump when their systems are fully up and running in terms of buying more credit.

GST invoice - tick.  How's that?  Better than Meatloaf.

Hi you would need to take that up with them - see on the page you provided - "If your provider isn’t listed below, then they’re not supported (yet). If you’d like them to be, then please get in touch"

Request from my friend that lives next to the Skinny office near the Drake

Not to blast their fire engine/ambulance sirens/loudspeakers after normal business hours

Not to park the Fire engine on the broken yellow lines on corners at junctions - they are there for a reason

Clean up the rubbish outside their office doors - littering is not cool

staff to grow up and have a bit of respect for the other occupants of their street

Thanks John, appreciate you raising this with me and I have passed it on to our office manager.

Thanx. One thing I found with my SGS2 after update to ICS that the Skinny APN would not save if you swapped out to another SIM and then put back your Skinny SIM. Was OK in Android 2.3.3 The APN had to be manually put back in. Not a biggy at present but when MMS is active and MMS settings are not something you want to have to manually put in will you have some method like Voda and 2D have to send the APNs to your fone and install them??




Regards,
