Has anyone else noticed when they log into the Vodafone website to check how much data they have left on this plan, it states "Free Anytime MBs"?

This got me thinking, why would they use the word "anytime" in the description?

We all know Vodafone will be launching more new data plans in the months to come, so maybe they might give us an "off peak" data option??

Interesting stuff.... ohhh yeah, dam i'm good.... still got it!!!
















Oh lawd. I hope not.

Im sick to death of that Opp-peak data crap.
Thats what ihug did.


For people who use their mobile broadband in the weekends or evenings, it could only be good as the rate per mb will be cheaper. Why pay peak rates when you don't have to?

Of course this is all just speculation :)



well, depends.

If you have an allocation, whats the point? I can see where it could come in if you had to pay per mb, but with an allocation of what ever amount.. point = zero from what I see.



Your alloocation could be cheaper though.

For example, 250mb anytime may cost $20, whereas 250gb "EDIT: 250mb lol" off peak might only cost $10.

For people that use their data off peak, they would benefit!




Ahh okay, gotcha' now.


haha, i lol'd at the 250gb :P

Has anyone else had trouble setting this up? I have called every day this week. 777 can't give me a data  balance (call back in 24 hours), 777 text doesn't give me any indication that the data pack is active. My unbilled balance goes up as per the old data usage ($1 per day+). The provisioning team have told me 4 times that the data pack is added correctly to my account. Hmmm... 




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

tried turning your phone off for 2 minutes, then back on?

I dont think that'll work, but its worth a try.. Failing that, then its most definitely something on Vodafone's side.

When I had this added, it was activated within 2 minutes, and is working 100%


Although, I have noticed quite a few 'No Service' spots ever since i had this addon put onto my account :| Strange, but I believe thats another story.

Johnr, not sure what you mean.

I was told if I dont use the right APN, it wouldnt use my data plan. Was told that from the Provisioning team at Vodafone the other day.


Apologies if I have you wrong.



From what i understand anyway, its a problem on Vodafone's side, not client side.

Ok I will clear somethings up

Turning your phone off and back on after a any plan change will do nothing! Chaging a pricing plan only affects rating of data wether its CDRs off the MSC's or Packet data CDRs off the SGSN

Data plan pricing is not APN related any public APN can be used IE www.vodafone.net.nz, internet, and it will use the data bundle

Thanks John. I think something has gone screwy on my account between the billing and the data pack at the Vodafone end. I will wait until my bill arrives and then try and sort it with accounts then.

Sorry I could not help laughing

The only time a device would need to be turned off and back on is when a SIM swap has happened
