Stop what is stopping a customer from going to 2D and then coming to Vodafone?

Nothing, perhaps when Vfone offer some realistic pricing on off net calling.

I'm on 2Degrees vodafone and telecom. Got a old CDMA phone for texting and 2degrees when I go over my vodafone plan limits. My iPhone is mainly on vodafone, but I have a old 2G iPhone so I can't switch to telecom. but if telecom releases the iPhone I will leave vodafone without hesitation. Unless vodafone gets some decent iPhone plans. for $60 I think I deserve more than 200 texts and 250 mb. The free 3GB of data is nice, but that ends this month. A few hours ago I realized that my phone uses data without telling me , (even if I change the APN it still works) therefore I'm being charged a dollar a day so I will get a broadband lite plan, but on account I need to talk to someone instead of just texting and I couldn't add it on my vodafone :(

Keep this thread on topic . . .


If v.box is anything to go by (and it sounds very very similar so far) then this exciting new thing will be quite lame . . .

Was it account-only or both prepay and on-account?

(powers up last and never-used Vodafone pre-pay handset and checks, No SMS) :-(

no? 


I think it would be swell if vodafone let iPhones check emails and app store updates for free, as apple doesn't give an option to stop it :(

+1 lol.. I wouldn't mind a plastic frisbee though, could be something that I could use to play Fetch with my cat with. Alough I do see why they put the $1 charge in place, just think the un-wanted calls from angry customers complaining about something silly like "I can't get my topup on" - "I demand more money" or the classic "How do you send a txt?" - Instead we get those customers coming into our store, some are as angry as anything, others are just wanting a quick lesson on how to send a txt, they proboarly wasted more money in Fuel driving out to us.. But it does take the load off the callcenter.

Because my cat doesn't like playing fetch, you will be the first to get my Frisbee.

I got it. I'm on an iPhone plan.

Didn't get one on my corporate phone, which has a higher spend.
