I just bought a Motorola V360V and then found out the 2000 texts for $10 text a month are only to vodaphone users, not telecom
as well. Has anyone heard when Vodafone will be changing this stupid policy and offer free texts included in their deal
to telecom phones too?

Always pays to check that kind of thing out before you buy a phone.

$10 text has been running for over 3 years and VF have not yet offered a deal on texts to Telecom. It doesn;t seem to really affect them in anyway but not offering such a deal. Don't hold your breath, but we may see something when number portability comes in.

Stupid policy? Free txts?

Its a smart policy, if you and 8 friends have Vodafones, and the tenth person in your group is looking to buy a phone, what are they gonna get? If they want to get txts from you guys, its gonna be a Vodafone.

Networks have been doing this for years, and its a perfectly valid way of lowering costs (because of the lack of termination rates) and attracting certain customers.

And there is no such thing as free txts. Even Telecom users pay $0.02c per text for the privilege (by way of the $10 a month).

And i'm lucky to send 20 in a month, slow, arcane way of communications.... and in saying that i hardly really make any calls either.

Vodafone will likely never offer such a deal, why would they! it makes no economic sense!
