Yip, I'm on account and just got that TXT as well.

Should we be worried, or excited?

Got the same text too... Im curious! Have you been with Vodafone for long? I have been with them for years and have recently switched onto the TXTer plan. Also have 3mb data plan. Any similarities? My partner hasn't got the text as yet. She is on the same plan but without data plan.

Ive been on account for a year and a half, ive stuck with the choose 20 plan with added txt 600 since joining.. I dont have a data plan but dont use the net over my phone. Usual monthly usage is fairly low, and ive only had a few blow outs and reached my $300 cap, so dont know how i am one of there best customers Laughing. I have no idea what it is but have high hopes!!

I'm still on a get70 plan, but also have the 3 mb - would have switched but didn't want a new phone, and wasn't really happy about singing up for 2 yrs.  If they had been able to increase my datacap to 15 mb i would have done it, but all they can do is give you a couple more texts or minutes.

Been with them about 8 years or so.

12 days of Christmas v.box delights

Each day you'll see two giveaways - one silly and one scintillating - for 12 consecutive days between 6 and 17 December 2007. This amazing prize spectacular is for v.box holders only.

On the first day you could win something silly - like a pair of underwater headphones, or something scintillating, like a Samsung home theatre system. And for every single day of the promotion there's another set of awesome prizes. So remember to return to your v.box each day to see the daily prizes you could win.

How to win
To be in with a chance of winning you need to be a registered v.box holder - so far so good. And you must also use your mobile at least once (call, TXT, PXT, video call or video PXT) on the day the prize is available. You'll then be automatically entered.

We'll draw the daily winners within two days, and the grand prize will be drawn on 18 December 2007, and winners will be contacted by phone. The full list of winners will be revealed in your next v.box update.



To top it all off, on 18 December one extremely happy winner gets to choose between either:

  • A luxury weekend in Marlborough for two
  • A brand new summer wardrobe from Huffer to the
    value of $2000

To be in to win the Big Kahuna giveaway, you just need to use your mobile on each of the 12 days of Vodafone Christmas.
Put another way, that's every day from 6 to 17 December!



Considering i live in marlborugh that top prize would be pretty avg really!! lol
