Vodafone has this new promotion at the moment 30 days of free music:
http://vodafonenz.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/vodafonenz.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=8672

The blurb goes on to say you have sign up, they will send you a link of the song you can download (you can't even choose the song!!).  At the very bottom you see the real clincher of the deal, "Standard data charges apply to download the free track"

So vodafone what you are saying is the free track is not free?

That's just like someone who wins a free movie ticket claiming it's not actually free because they have to pay for petrol to get to the theatre.

You can walk to the theatre.

I'd say it's more like winning a free ticket to see a movie but getting charged to walk through the door ;)

But with the songs you pay for data charges still apply.

I wonder if you can download the songs from the Voda website like you can with the pay songs. Can anyone confirm?

I'd say it is more like having to supply a stamped self addressed envelope, the product is free you just have to pay for the distribution. Perfectly acceptable - although it would be nice if the song was zero rated.

Hey, there's always Broadband Lite - 100mb of Mobile Data for $10 per month.. Just txt "buy bblite" off to 756 - problem solved. I still think it's cool that Vodafone do this. If you don't want to pay for the data, just don't download it, or download it through the Vodafone Online Music store straight to your computer, you pay for bandwidth on your computer anyway right?
