Hi all, i know the other thread has gone up to 34 page and there's another wanting to organise a protest during launch night. I just want to say that with regards to the vodafone pricing of the phone itself its about the price that we all would expect. What is hard to take on are the pricing plans, be it data allowance or minutes/txt bundle.

We are already suffering in the hands of Duopoly now, even with Telecom coming up with an iphone plan, the plans they offer wouldnt be too far off what vodafone is currently offering. I think we should lodge a proper petition to steve jobs and apple inc. We are the first nation to receive the iphone 3g, and we can show them, and the world, how badly the monopoly (duopoly) is in our country. Complaints do get attention in apple. Look at the canadians as example.

Unfortunately, as you can see, my english is not of the best, so i sincerely hope that someone could draft a strong petition address to the management team in apple. Thanks.

regards

Since they(Vodafone) are not doing anything illegal. The only thing you can do is not buying the IPhone from them, no matter how much you wanted it. Money talks louder than any online / paper based petition. Cool

Yea, another problem is that our market is really small compared to other places. Theres a very slim chance, but we can ask apple to limit supply to nz vodafone until they drop the prices. BThats a very slim chance indeeed. Anyways, I will be getting mine from UK when they launch the pay as you go handset, and i would encourage everyone to do so when they can find any from oversea which works out to be cheaper.
