Does anyone know what the situation on this is? I called telecom whos only answer was that they could transfer it onto another telecom account, which I do not have at the moment.

Will the credit remain post 31st for me to transfer to my newly ported 021 number when I get that sorted or will it just evaporate into telecoms already excessive profits?

Decommissioning of the 025 network has been widely known now for a LONG time. Surely you would have sensibly topped up your 025 prepay in recent months to a level where it would be as close to zero as possible come 31 March?

In saying that, surely there must be something in place for Telecom to transfer the credit to a CDMA prepay phone number (with or without a newly ported 021 number)

From the top of my mind, customers will have 3 months from the closure of the 025 network to request residual credit to be transferred to a Telecom account or prepaid mobile, so in short you will be able to transfer it to a ported 021 number via the TBA 025 resolution team within that time frame.

I cant use it up easily since the battery life on the phone is mere minutes off the charger now, and both at home and at tech I have to go outside to get signal on it.

Only about $30 on it now, been using it up as I can but without wanting to have people get that number and call back on it I am limited to calling people with the number hidden which is a small subset of people I know.

If you switch to 027 before 31 March 2007 any unused credit will be transferred to your new Telecom 027. After 31 March 2007 and before 1 July 2007 you may transfer any unused credit on your 025 account to either another active Telecom account or a new 027 connection in your name. Any unused credit on your 025 account not transferred in this manner will lapse on 1 July 2007.


Best thing is to read from the source itself.

Have you tried an extension cord?
