These plans are expensiveThese plans are the best value Vodafone offersThat will not go down well with most people. Firstly, it is evident that what Vodafone considers to be better value, other people most certainly do not.
– and we are offering the biggest subsidy ever on a new release device.This is true, but of course it's not quite relevant, as the very thing people are complaining about is the massive price of PLANS . The only way to get the large subsidy is to spend $6000, and that is what people are objecting to, not to the price of the phone itself.
In the ‘iPhone 1GB’ plan I don’t want 600mins of calling therefore I am paying for something I don’t need.
We have a range of options for people so they can choose the best voice, txt and date plan to suit their needs and budget. It is possible for customers to add the 1Gig data add-on to their existing You Choose Plan. The minimum cost for this is You Choose 20 and 1Gig of Data ($69.90). In this situation the subsidy for a new customer would be $160
If you guys had let me go on a $19 You Choose no term with the $1/month casual data I would be in line for a full price 16GB right now.
Could you clarify on how you arrived at the subsidy of $160? Based on your FAQ, the You Choose 20 gives a subsidy of $80, and Broadband 1GB gives a subsidy of $150. Shouldn't it then give a total subsidy of $230 based on your method of calculation, or am I missing something here?
bonkiebonks: NZ has one of the worst pricing for the iPhone, but since we can now bundle it with any You Choose plans, I believe we have the most flexible iPhone plans in the world. :)
I wonder if VF will allow us to just buy the phone without going on contract so we can secretly take it home and use our prepay sim cards and use wifi at wifi hotspots like starbucks and hoyts to browse the internet? wifi routers for home arent that expensive nowadays neither.
if thats so this renders data plans completely useless imo. If worse comes to worse its you choose 20 ($18.95/month) and phone outright for me.
DAMOKOSH: I don't know much about VPN's and wi fi but if I am correct my friend use to own a PSP and that has wifi capabilities, and it required no contract or vpn codes you just find a frequency and wam your surfing on the internet

I think you are referring to APN not VPN. APN is for the 3G and GPRS network and is a different communication method than Wifi.The pre-pay issue was referring to 3G and GPRS and not Wifi.So having a pre-pay sim in an iPhone you could still use it in a Wifi environment (so long as you have access) and there are a number of free Wifi Hotspots around (libraries, Hoyts etc), or you can buy coffee, or pay per access per provider
