I've just ditched my 10 year old plan in favour of a couple of these $19 pre pay deals. Paid $40 which left a $2 credit. After a day of use my $2 credit is gone & now I can't access my voicemail. Do I need to pay extra for this? I expected it to come off my minutes... Is this how prepay works, it's new to me.

From what I know voicemail is charged separately.

Thanks, looks like I'd better change my voicemail greeting to say not to bother leaving a message then.

In T-World you can just switch off the voicemail diverts and no one will be able to leave you a message if that's what you'd like?

Yes (I know) and yes you can. That is what I have set up. It is called 'My Favourites'. From memory, text the number you want to F A V E. It is charged per minute each month until you hit the $6 cap. The best thing is if you don't use it that month it costs nothing and if you use less than $6 worth of minutes that's all it costs. Much better than VF's 'Best Mates' which is $6/mnth whether you use it or not IMHO.

No, that's exactly why I did it. When I first set it up I was perplexed as to why my pre-pay balance was going down when I called the number, in my case my home landline, but it stopped at $6. My minutes balance in the $19 pack was unchanged. Note the favourites is not tied to the $19 pack at all and is charged per calendar month.

Edit: grammar

I don't find it very interesting, mind you I haven't seen it in such a long time since I don't watch broadcast TV.

I'm planning on changing my wife's phone from contract to this prepay pack - can it be done with a call to Telecom or should we port to another provider and port back to Telecom?
