naggyman: Now that I have that off my chest who is going to volunteer to try and find the limit?
I might, just don't want my plan removed quite early in the month. I will think about it.


I would imagine to get to the limit u would have to start on the 1st of the month and keep going

Ok, I will try then.
This is what I will do:
I have a txt that is 1000 characters long and fills up 7 txts, I will send that to my 2degrees sim heaps and heaps of times. I don't wont get anywhere near the limit but I will try.

wiredr: you guys have been succesfully side tracked by the " unlimited " txting thing. the real point is that telecom are getting $12 from every user for the first 60 txts to 027 numbers .so untill 60 txts to 027 have been sent there is no unlimited txting. txting to 027 basicaly cost tnz nothing . also if a voucher is purchased ($20 minimum )then there is always going to be a surplus on the a/c which will encourage more voice calls, again more income . so while txting to 021 and 022 etc would appear free tnz are getting on average $20/month from every user up front . money for jam really,


it costs Telecom around 9c for every txt sent from their network to another one.

it only takes a couple of hundred off-net texts before they strat getting into loss territory

i never heard of one sided conversations. if some one was to  txt 027 to 021 and then 021 to 027  then telecom would pay vf and vf would pa tnz  so zero cost . except for last txt  sent.

My monthly average is about 170 - 250, mostly on-net but some off-net stuff as well.

And that's because I have a qwerty smartphone which is very easy to initiate and generate an sms on, if I had to use a regular keypad i'd be pushing it to send 10.
