Hi. 

 

I can't understand why this would be so expensive? Isn't that pretty much what getting an S7 would be?

 

Have I missed something?

S7 is available for $399 on a 24 month $129.99 plan http://www.vodafone.co.nz/shop/mobileDetails.jsp?skuId=sku940060

 

The subsidy for the $129 plan might be up to a particular dollar amount that would cover the cost of some phones entirely and others will cover a portion. Some phones might have additional value on particular plans.

So you are saying $129 a month for 2 years is correct on an $500 S5?

I think the S5 is listed at $799 on our site at the moment. It's not emphasised so much now as it's an older phone and the focus is on the S7.
