Have any of you tried to use a pre-paid phone company? I'm thinking of moving to one but haven't heard to much about them....... I hear there's a couple of them now and hoping someone that has used one could let me know how they are.

Cheers

I remember looking at services a while ago, they tend to be more expensive, being aimed at people with bad credit - "Telecom cut you off, but we will still give you a phone line, you just have to pay more".

0800reconnex? i saw a print media article about the rip off that it was but it was targeted at the people with no other choice.. approx100 a month maybe?

canada may exists in a different environment. In NZ kiwishare (governs teleco stuff after the sale of telecom) guarantees no fee on calls within a local area code but you pay national and international tolls as well as landline to cell tolls. Our cell rates are quite high, so your environment may dictate what is best for you holla
