I posted this on Vodafones Forum and quickly realized my mistake when my mate who devised this showed me an 027 6255 phone.... Whoops.

Sign up to Team Builder Zero for $55 plus $10 for the Frequently called number =$65 all up..
1000 minutes of national calls will cost you another $50

Chose a calling card from the list:
Talkplus, 5c landline calls, no surchages, Inc GST( 0.6c for top5 international)
Kiaora, 5c or 8c to landlines in NZ, no surchages, inc GST

Set you FCN (the one you pay the extra $10 for) to the dial-in number for the calling card.

Use a Nokia 027 if at all possible, you can setup the calls so they are accessable in your phonebook without mucking about with Pins on each call etc. Go to the phones menu, call settings, Calling cards, and setup using
Access Number (of callng card like 09 915 0019)
+card number (like 698877458782#1) (cardpinnumber+#+1 to make a call)
+phone number (entered from when you use it)

To call, dial in number or select in phonebook, press and HOLD the [Talk] key to "card call" follow the instructions on the screen. (pressing a softkey when you heard the voice prompts)


NOTE:***** mobile calls should still go through Telecom as the cards are generally higher/calls rounded up to minutes, Telecom charge $0.55c each min for mobile calls.


TEST a calling card before changing over to Team builderZero and make sure it's easy enough.

This might be in Breach of the Terms and conditions of the "team builder" agreement,]
Abuse it and lose it and they'll probably lock it off. (making calls longer than two hours, more than ten calls within 1 hour)

Whoops, Not those cards, only access numbers which are TELECOM landlines can now be used.

I don't know of the card used by my mate,, most are plain dodgy in either connection fees or delays in speech. so this is a bit of a waste of time... use the 3 minute hour for the cheap international calls instead.

I remember when I was in the UK in the late 90's that One2One was the only network that offered free calls to 0800 numbers from mobiles. Because no surcharge existed for calling 0800 numbers from a mobile there was a continual battle going on between various calling card companies and One2One who kept blocking them. Once a number stopped working you'd ring the card company and they'd give you a new number, they were continually going through numbers, sometimes a different one each day!

You won't be getting "Cheap International Calls" with that promotion as it only applies to National Calls!

Not if you use the 3 minute national call to call a calling card number & then make the international call.

But is this against Telecoms Terms & Conditions for the particular promotion?

It could be but they have to catch you first..

I know there are companies out there taking advantage of both Vodafone and Telecom by selecting 1 PSTN number which is gives DISA access to their PBX and then allows people to quick dial extensions within their office or to other landlines and pay far cheaper prices.

It is a fact of life. If there is a plan then there is always a scheme. Thats why there are lawyers and accountants.

As I'm quite new to these forums, does posting this information on these forums contravene any of the guidelines of these forums? It appears that it could do, though I'm not certain.

I don't think so. These are just 'loopholes' that are in the service provided. (linky)

Very fine line.

We don't allow unlock codes, hacks that give access to private information, confidential data and trade secrets.

In this case it looks like a normal use of a feature.

Grantis, What "information" are you regarding? this is only a suggestion we came up with.. I have discovered he calls his Asterisk PBX as his FCN and re-routes calls that way now. well it IS a breach of the plan conditions so let's not go there. i don't beleive there is anything against using this method for the 3 minute hour though,,, remember there is no benefit using 3min hour for NATIONAL calls through a card, just internatonal
