Hi,

I wanted to draw your attention to this important petition that I recently signed:


"Vodafone's Outrageous iPhone costs"

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/iphone_rip_off_New_Zealand?e


I really think this is an important cause, and I'd like to encourage you to add your signature and pass it on to everyone in your address book, too. It's free and takes less than 30 secs


Come on, do you bit for the everyday kiwi.

Agreed.

Besides, what good is a Prepay option if we're still going to get raped for using the iPhone?

Important? What is your criteria for classing something as important?

And what is an online petition going to do?

Today (Tuesday 8th July 08) Vodafone NZ (www.vodafone.co.nz/iPhone) has officially lifted the lid off its iPhone pricing.
WTF!!! How on earth do these people think of these prices...
Why should we put up with these thieving corporate monkeys.
Please sign this petition if you agree that Vodafone NZ are trying to rip-off the general public of New Zealand and should drastically reduce there pricing plans for real people and not the few millionaires in NZ.


Very professional.. very well written..

Edit: oh freitasm already said that elsewhere. oh well Yell

Well, it seems our poster who had anonymous tip-offs of the prices was right.

At those prices, I will not be getting an iPhone from Vodafone. No way. Not a chance. Never. Not ever.
