Hi guys,

Sorry if this has been already asked or is considered silly...:P
just wondering if there are ways to monitor calls/data you have made using your phone on prepay system... ie by registering with Telecom XT prepay online (i know this gives you additional $10 credit) but does it allow you do view your calls and how much it was charged etc??

Any comments on this would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

No, you can't access TWorld from the iPhone, because the iPhone doesn't support WAP. You can visit http://pdaportal.telecom.co.nz though and go from there.

and one further question... sorry for bombarding with loads of questions.....
can someone also kindly tell me the procedures with closure of accounts with vodafone following a successful number port to telecom??
i can still log into vodafone website to view my account details etc... am just concerned that they may carry on charging me as normal..... do i need to do somethign about it? or just wait and be patient...??

Give it a few days but definately ring before the end of your billing cycle. As soon as my port was completed last year I lost the ability to log in to their site.

Internet is firewalled so offers a bit of protection from "hackers" etc but it may stop some applications from working, direct is opposite.

I'll change back to 3G and check what call details are shown once I'm finished listening to freitasm on Newstalk ZB which I am currently streaming live from here. (You have to be connected via Telecom to access YT, doesn't work from Orcon.

And the answer to your question:





EDIT: I haven't made any calls but suspect they will be the same as for TXTs.
It only shows the last 12 lines though . . .

What stage do you get to?

Log-in page loads?
Pushed the button to send a temporary PIN to your phone?
Received the PIN?
Logged in using temporary PIN?
