Is it possible to get a Local Number on a Mobile with a personal contract?  Alternatively, can you get a family discount on a business contract?

TimA: Hi, You are referring to the Localzone where your mobile will obtain a landline number when you are on a certain tower?

As for contracts etc, You would need to speak with our sales team. Thanks.


No, LN on a mobile http://www.vodafone.co.nz/business/mobile/local-number-on-a-mobile/

Tried to speak to sales but they were too busy yesterday and said they’d call back….

johnr: Many plans offer a GN on mobile and not sure what you mean to the second part of your question



Which ones John?  I can only find LN on mobile on business plans.

The second part refers to the discount that family get for a second line on personal plans…. do you get the same discount on a business plan?

If the Primary Customer is on Red Essentials Package, Red Package, Red Super Package, Black Package or Black Data Package, Vodafone will provide a $30 (including GST) discount off the monthly access fee for the first four Additional Connections added to the Primary Customer’s account.

And I still don’t know what a black package is!

Black packages are like RED, Just more data etc..

 

Customers with an eligible 12 or 24 month term on a RED or Black Package can sign-up for additional connections (12 month term) under their Customer Account to receive the Family Discount.

How much more data?  I can’t find them on the website.

Are the business packages eligible plans?

Thanks

FYI The answer to my question is that LN on a mobile is only available on business plans and is a local number in the area your bill is sent to, which then changes when you move to a different area code.
