Hi all. Currently I have a number with Vodafone which is on a contract due to end soon. Looking at porting this over to Telecom (prepay), but have a few questions.

* I presume I can keep the number (number portability and all that)
* Is there a minimum time I need to stay on Telecom prepay before I could consider changing to another provider again?
* Anything else I should know?

Cheers
David

There should be no time frame on how long you need to be on telecom prepay.

*Yes you can
*No there is not
*Just make sure you're fully out of contract before you change :)

Haha an important point to note, undecided :)

I was stung with a $160 'early termination fee' by Vodafone for porting my number over to Telecom without making sure when my contract ends.

Like they say - ignorance is bliss

I actually ported to Telecom and didn't know about the credit until my first invoice - that was a nice surprise. And I didn't get a phone since I already had an Okta Touch...

really? wow. I thought that would normally be the salesperson/csr's main selling point to encourage someone to port to Telecom.

Kiwipork, when porting to Telecom on certain postpaid plans (rated as teir 3 and above) or any business plan you get a $300 account credit and a subsidy ranging from $200-500 of the price of a new phone. You may be required to trade in an old voda handset, but sometimes all you need is the sim

I have one here and used it daily for a couple of months before getting the Samsung Worldmode. It's a nice device, good size, and quite fast Windows Mobile compared to some others. The one I have here worked fine with a micro SDHC 8 GB card so all good.
