A few questions for the people that have been on Vodafone for a while or work for them. I can't find answers to these on the website, or the answers don't seem right.

1) Prepay "Best Mates" - According to Supa Prepay T&C best mates includes "call, TXT and video call" - So does this mean PXT is not included? Seems a little odd.

2) Concatenated Text Messages - For some reasons texts that are longer then 160 characters aren't coming through between a V3x and a V3xx. Anyone know why? and secondly are these charged simply as two text messages, ie free to a best mate and two texts off allocated messages included with plan?

3) Vodafone e-mail. I signed up for a @vodafone.net.nz account. It says txt notifications may cost
(Please note that charges may apply for notifications to be sent to your Vodafone mobile phone.)
but I can't find how much, are these the normal 20c and do't use included texts on a plan?
Also, does it cost to check these emails thorough my phone or is it a free wap usage.

4) My phone was a menu option Connectivity >> Synchronisation >> Vodafone Sync. Which lets me setup a details of a sync partner to backup/sync contacts, calender, tasks etc. Is this active with vodafone NZ, if so how do I sign up and does it cost?

5) My phone has a option for videomail which you get diverted to if you miss a videocall, like voicemail, but there is no number setup for it to divert to, is this currently up and running on Vodafone

6) Somewhere on the website I read that checking voicemail may cost either flat 20c or 1 minute of an included plan. So which is it on the choose 60 plan?

Thanks for any answers

1)PXT are not included for best mate as stated in there Ads TXT video calling and voice calls

2) Motorola would be best to look at this or a job logged through Vodafone to look into it, TXT longer than 160 characters are just treated as another TXT. So if sending to bestmate included in the $6 if not bestmate 2 TXT or 160 X 3 = 3 TXT

3) 20 cents for TXT notification. If checking vodafone mail through Vlive its free through a POP/IMAP client normal prepay data rates 10 cents per 10 kb of data

4) No idea I would say not supported by Vodafone NZ

5) don't set up a divert for video calling as the voice mail does not support video calls and prepay customers can not setup diverts anyway!

6) voice mail 20 cents flat rate 24/7

4 & 5 are definitely not supported yet
6 it will cost 20c or 1 minute of OFF peak bundle. So if you have Your Time 100 or 300 addons and check voicemail during offpeak it will take 1minute instead of 20c. It will not deduct off your anytime minutes though (your 60 monthly) it will charge you 20c in peak times

Regarding #4, are you sure this isint just a standard SyncML client? If so, it shouldn't be too hard to set up your own sync server. Of couse, this would cost an arm and a leg to keep syncing, so you're probably better off using Bluetooth/USB.

Yea it is standard SyncML and it also has an option for sync with an exchange server.
