hey I am on Bestmate and I am still being charged to send text messages to my best friends phone (the same number I gave to Vodafone) I am ringing up tomorrow but just curious as to anyone else who has noticed that as well. They have already taken the $6.00 from me for this months best mates thing and I got charged 11 cents to send the message.

Make sure when you send the TXT its in the correct format 021XXXXXXX or +6421XXXXXXX not 21XXXXXXX

11 cent charge is strange I would say its not for TXT

Are you using a IMPORT handset? Maybe for WAP charges

yeah, everythings correct, I went 021xxxxxx and I even used the option to insert a contact into the message when I signed up for Bestmate and the number was correct upon the time I signed up.

If you SMS BAL to 777 I think a SMS will come back showing your bestmate MSISDN

I just tested it on a prepay SIM and it shows the bestmate MSISDN

Best mate works like a dream for me.. I have not been charge for any use to my best mate number other then the $6.

If you text to get your balance you get to messages one letting you know your on the plan and another one letting you know your best mate number and balance,

oh darn I done it again and it came up with another one, another thing is that lately my account has been losing money.  For example this morning I had 3 bucks on there and now I only have 30 cents.  I have only sent $1.20 woth of text messages today and I aint on the 2000 texts for superprepay, would it be coz I am losing all this money??.

Has your handset got a Email client built into it and been turned on to Auto check IE every 30 minutes or 60 minutes or something like this

Something I was curious about that maybe johnr can answer - is the Prepay billing system any closer to "realtime" now?

For Voice and TXT I know they are real time but for packet data thats a good question!

The new prepay rating system is great as what I can tell from using it on bestmate!

I have done a few packet data sessions (not on vlive) and then check account Balance but this did not go down!
