Pretty good deal if you call AUssie...

From now until the end of March 08, you can call any Aussie landline for 60 minutes and pay a capped rate of $2, 24/7. Can't see this on the Voda website yet but i got a text about it yesterday.

The good news is, this does include YouChoose customers.

Ahh excellent, This will be well used. calling a mobile in Australia is rather expensive otherwise.

Note this is only for Aussie LANDLINES, not mobiles.

Some customers may get caught out here so be careful.

Oh,,,,, Yes I bet a lot will be caught out as the last promo was "all inclusive".

Even I did not see the word "landline" you posted while viewing from my PDA. (trying to use Opera at 50% zoom is a bad idea!)

simon14: Funny how it's cheaper to call an aussie landline then a NZ landline :)


But this is the case with Vodafone all the time - it's only 49c per minute to call a mobile or landline in Australia on virtually all plans yet most people are paying a lot more than this for calls inside NZ.

If I go over my included minutes and need to ring home I ring my Melbourne number hooked up to my Asterisk PBX at home as it's cheaper! :-)

LOL! It's been like that for quite some years now... shows the cozy duopoly well that is currently abusing the fact!

I'm setting up another thin-client as an Asterisk server this weekend hopefully so will go VoIP crazy! just gotta try and find an 80GB hard drive which is getting difficult and finish this 5110 GSM- PSTN voice gateway.

Still cant see anything on the website so called 777 to check if my Mega plan is included - cool it is.
Doesn't appy to TalkZone though. Not sure how much training the agent had because she had to put me on hold twice to check the details!

The link is there now
https://www.vodafone.co.nz/specials-promos/2-for-60-minutes.jsp

...so you can call landlines in Australia, the UK, USA, Canada, Ireland, China, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, India, Malaysia and the Philippines. You can call ANY time of day or night, weekday or weekend and you'll only pay $2 for up to 60 minutes.

Honestly, I believe there is no reason other than Vodafone trying to "catch users out", by not including mobiles for countries like USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, etc...

There is no difference in "charges" (since it's mobile users paying to receive a call) in these countries!  And it's sometimes almost impossible to tell a mobile number apart from a landline number (cause users don't care)!
