benalaberry: Does anyone know any new Telecom cellphones coming soon??
Oggie: There is meant to be a new Sanyo coming out around Christmas time, but thats all I've heard of. It will be a basic camera phone, nothing flash. Can't wait till the new network arrives.
Because when theres a fault, a problem, a query about the mobile ph or network, you dont have to pay even if your a prepaid customer, and you'll get through faster?
The phone to come could be the Sanyo 3800, you can google it.
Madmax77: One would imagine that the other networks will follow suit shortly, it's very uneconomical to service low spend customers with a live agent. Just look at how much of Telecoms contact centre is now serviced from overseas (cheaper for them).
undecided: Pretty small in the big picture when you consider 7000 Telecom staff, at least half of which id say are in call centres
Madmax77: Now here's an interesting question, would you rather pay $1 (or something) to speak to someone in NZ all the time knowing you are keeping someone employed here, or would you rather pay nothing and speak to someone offshore...it's a bit of a tough one, but I think I'd rather pay to keep someone off the dole (in which case I'd be paying anyway...damn those taxes)
