I signed up for the Big Value pack as my TalkTextData valuepack expired the day after the Big pack was announced :-) I reckon it's awesome value.

Remember to cancel your "renewal" of your previous TalkTextData pack, you don't want to be paying for two... unless you really want to? lol

I just received an automated TXT saying the Data for the Big Value Pack has gone up from 400MB to 500MB - but I'm not sure if that is just for this 1st month or whether it is for every month.

That's correct... Just received the press release:


The recently launched ?Big Value Pack? just got better with customers now enjoying 500MB of included data instead of 400MB, plus 60 minutes and 5000 texts for just $19 a month.

Just looking at their postpaid plans
this new deal is better value than three of the postpaid plans, hope they get some increase.

The talk n txt $30, smartphone $40, the blackberry $50 plan all give you less for more $.

I hope these get adjusted?

My wife is locked in on contract to the smartphone $40, really annoying that a $19 prepay deal will give her more minutes and txts for less than half the price . . . . .

Needless to say, avoid postpaid if you can afford to pay for the full price of a mobile phone.

And, avoid postpaid completely.

although if you sign up right now for 12 months on smartphone $40 you only get $40 off phone, two months on prepay and your back at square one saving money . . .

Unlikely that post paid plans will be changed due to the nature of the beast. Lock you in for 12 or 24 months..

Untrue. You only get locked into a term plan if you want a phone subsidy.
