Okay i posted in the windows mobile forum about how i received a second hand okta touch for christmas, only to find that telecom don't allow data devices on prepaid (vodafone do!?!).
Currently i have a Nokia 6585 on prepaid using $10 txt 500, and thats all i use it for each month. I simply wanted to use the okta instead but telecom have to complicate things.
So, im considering taking out a plan, but im not sure how it works exactly.
Had a look and it seems the cheapest plan was $30 per month. I dont mind paying this, if im getting a $30 value out of it, but i wouldnt use any of the free minutes at all (i make zero calls).
So i read up on how this flexi 'credit' works, and i thought well perhaps the other $20 can go towards a small amount of data.
However, its 1c per KB, which works out at $10/MB. So i'd get a grand total of 2MB for my extra $20? In terms of small, i was thinking 50mb for some light browsing, not 2mb. I don't even really want to use data at all due to these huge charges, all i want is $10 txt pretty much.
Is there seriously no plan that suits me at all? Prepaid is perfect at the moment, all i want to do is change phone.
(nb: onebill isnt possible due to being with a different provider)
I've never really had a good opinion of telecom as a company, their recent broadband offerings however have increased how good i see them as, but this has bought it right back down to the level of ridiculous.
The most frustrating thing is that vodafone seem to allow you to use any plan on any phone you want, just chuck the sim in and you're away. I cant understand why telecom have to be such a pain about it.
