Not sure about you guys but I'd really appreciate some larger sized data add-ons on XT prepaid (or postpaid, for that matter).

Or perhaps a data block system like Slingshot/Callplus (for broadband/internet services) where you could purchase 240MB blocks for $18 each and stockpile them. What'd be better is if the unused amount rolled over to the next month, but that's another story.

For example, I'm going on holiday at the end of the year to where I cannot get internet but can get signal on my phone. So the plan is to tether my phone to my computer and use IRC and browse quite a lot. 240MB isn't quite going to suffice.

+1 for larger caps, something like $50 for a gig would be nice (I know its cheaper overseas)

I thought it was 50-60ish for a gig, just change your plan for the month you go away. 240mb is definitly not the biggest data plan you can have on prepaid.

You can get the larger data addons

Look just under the table and it mentions 'These plans are also available for your phone if you are a heavy data user.'

Telecom does this for prepaid data cards so should be able to do it on a mobile also.
