My wife had a call from Mainly Mobile selling Telecom's Flexi plan. They then sent me an email describing the Flexi plan. Who are Mainly Mobile? Are they a Telecom subsidiary?

Not too impressed by the flexi plan. I am on pay as you go on account, with fairly low usage. The Flexi plan looks overpriced to me.

Presumably www.mainlymobile.co.nz although their web site will leave you no better informed than you are at present. However Google does have some interesting info relating to apparent breaches of the Door to Door Sales Act while engaging in sales to existing Telecom mobile customers some 18 months ago. http://www.adls.org.nz/doclibrary/public/whiteboard/CA14804.pdf

Urgh THEM! i worked for them for like 2days, basically they hire people to harass businesses and consumers over the phone to buy mobile phones, their business ethics are questionable at best.




I like cats... they taste like Chicken

They're in basic terms an outsourced Telecom dealership, all they really are is a telemarketing company that works with Telecom to get connections.

Definitely deal with a store however if looking at getting a phone. Deals are probably the same, but at least you'll have a face to deal with if anything goes wrong.

That's a very interesting document ... and a fascinating insight into legal case law arguments.
