Anyone have any decent ideas on how a friend can run down his credit on his XT mobile without being wasteful? He isn't intending to park for a long time in a car park, or buy coke. Any other ideas on how you can use remaining prepaid XT credit?

Do any charities receive more than $3 per TXT for donations? What TXT charities exist?

Shameless Plug:
Not sure if this number is still current, but a $20 to Surf Lifesaving can be made by calling 0900 54 334.

"daffday" to 2448 for the Cancer Society. Smile

I owe a lot to these guys and I can verify that the donations they receive truly go to good causes.

They want to port earlier than they'd use up the credit. It would be a waste to call just for the sake of it.

Can you call 0900s from XT prepaid??

Don't think so, no. Most phone companies now bar 0900 numbers by default.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

I'm actually interested in the same thing. How can you buy Coke with prepaid credit? It wouldn't be my first choice, but better than nothing.

I might be mistaken but I thought we had coke machines that accepted txt payment (possibly with surcharge)?
