This story from TMCNet is most interesting:


One source told Jackson [Vodafone] New Zealand had chosen one of two billing system options for the project, but Vodafone corporately decided subsequently to run with the other.

The core problem seems to have been one of scalability, Jackson says, "that as the business grew, the billing system wasn’t able to scale up… It’s understood the introduction of PXT was offered free for six months, simply because it couldn’t be billed."

"In December 2003, IBM was selected as the integrator for Vodafone's new CRM, billing and provisioning systems in New Zealand, Australia and Fiji. The CRM component was to be based on Siebel, which is used in several Vodafone country subsidiaries."

Interesting read!

I remember those days.. who needed TXT when PXT was free! Same thing happened for me when You Choose was 'bolted-on', my TXT add-on's were there but they weren't deducting, or being charged for

I wonder how long before they run a story on this thread, then they can quote you quoting them who were originally quoting you;)
