Moving away from 2 degrees after price hike. Vodafone tell me PrePay & Go is 20c per call and 1c per text.

 

How come text is so cheap is there a catch ?

 

 

 

Also they say I can bring my existing number, but need a Vodafonee SIM card but when i go to buy one

 

(o their website) it wants me to choose a number that's not mine. Also says "triple SIM". Whats that ?

 

 

 

Thanks for any info on this.

You buy a SIM with a Prepay number already attached and then port in the number you want to keep over the top of the number that came attached to the SIM

 Triple SIM covers Standard , Nano , Micro

On account is not Prepay, On account is getting a monthly invoice for mobile services

Thanks, I can't see anything there about putting in a number. I can get someone to help me later tonight but just concerned

 

as my wife was told by the help desk she couldn't take her number with her to vodafone, but I was told I could (with my number)

 

So we want to be sure !
