Does vodafone currently have any text plans like it used to with txt 2000? I recently turned on my vodafone sim to re use it as a personal phone, so I sometimes make the odd call but mostly txt around. :D Whenever I top up I get unlimited txts for a month, when that expires I am left with $20 credit which I am not sure what to do with since I cant buy any monthly plans other then using regular rates.

txt is pretty much an unlimited feature on most plans from all vendors now...

So you are on FreebeeTALK or FreebeeDATA, Supa_Prepay is what TXTNZ or TXT5000 could be purchased on

Seems to be consistent across all 3 major players - no txt only plans, which is a PITA, as all I want is txt  - have minimal use for data and voice on my secondary phone.
Only Skinny seem to have an $8 montly txt plan.




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

i'm on FreebeeTalk, :) Last time I used TXT2000 some was some 5 - 6 years ago. I read those supaprepay stuff is no longer valid for new customers. So after everymonth I am left with $20, which is good for 200 txts, but sometimes I use it sometimes I dont, weekly deals kinda suck for me, I wish there was a txt pack or a talk pack that I could buy which would last a month.

Skinny wont work on my old nokia 5800 phone,  So looking to maybe buy a n9. Alternatively I may switch to 2degrees.


Who can tell me more about 2 degrees? Do they offer some bonus every time you top up like vodafone?

Well, tha last 2 months ice been offered an extra 100m for $1 when my $19 rollover came through, so either they notice it's always data I finish, or that's a standard for my plan... But since it also rounds my monthly bill to the min $20 I have to top up, and they charge $6/100mb pack normally... I like the bonus offer personally!

If you use less than 250 texts a month (and no data), 2degrees $8 chat pack might also be worth a look

Let the Prepay credit build up for many months or a year then move to a zero term contract and the Prepay balance will follow over onto the postpaid account.

Then use it for on-account and then when credit balance all gone move back to Prepay as you are on a zero term month to month contract.
