(originally known as Smart $40)

 

Interested to know if anyone is still on this rather old plan of Vodafone ?

 

I think I signed up in 2010/2011 and it is still working well for my needs - 4G, 5GB data, $49/month, 150 mins, 2500 txts.

 

Don't care about the texts, and 150 mins was bumped up from 30 mins about 18 months ago when I was considering switching to another provider.

There are better offers out there - for example, Skinny Direct offer 6gb data, unlimited calling and texting for $50/mo.

Yep still on mine, 500 free mins, unlimited txts, 1.25gb data and free calling/txts to any NZ/AU landline or mobile incl in the free portions of call and txt data.  So was handy to talk, txt. SMS my mate in Aus during the rugby and also on a recent trip over there for the Global 10s.

 

Still meets my needs and have never exceeded anything. $40.97 monthly cost. They keep sending me reminders to upgrade but I don't need the extra data etc.
