I just picked up a mailer for Bond and Bond and noticed on the back of it this (under XT):

Non-Stop Text
Anyone, Any NZ Network, Anytime
All the texts you'll ever need for only $12 a month (Fair use policy in small print)

I can't find anything on their website about it

Anyone else know of this? I thought the dumped unlimited text due to how much it was costing in interconnection fees

I can imagine Telecom running a loss-leader for a few months to try to move people to XT.

I'm wondering if our junk mail came a day early than usual, the warehouse is advertising the Nokia 3120c for $199 with sim card, it does not mention the unlimited text tho

It will be interesting to see what it is and whether it is part of a bigger picture. Tomorrow WILL tell.

Wow, this looks cool. 


I wonder if the people on the $12 600 Text plan will get automatically put over to this new plan. 


This is reminding me about the Big Time launch

Telecom's not denying there'll be an unlimited plan announced tomorrow...


Also hear that there may be further new services/products announced tomorrow, but haven't got wind yet as to what they may be. Speculating wildly, I'd imagine bigger data plans for XT, ditto lowered casual voice/data rates, and maybe also rejigged DSL plans.

What a bad, bad, bad, bad move...

The lessons from $10 TXT simply either haven't been learnt and it's obvious now that that XT has obviously failed to capture market share from Vodafone that had been hoped. The problem is $12 TXT isn't going to to do that either..

How does umts handle lots of texts vs the old cdma network?

Is there any difference if you have it set to those 2 different options for sending texts (not with my phone to see what they are called, but on the old sony ericsson it was GSM or GPRS)

GOOD movie by Telecom. Not sure how much money it will make them with termination rates, but they've obviously done research and figured most people will text 027 anyway. A heap of people are gona get a new phone. Well, that my prediction anyway
