johnr: How about a beer!!

I think its my turn to shout you one. - I'll be in AKL for Geekzone Party Auckland '05.

Coult it be we about to see another round of price cuts for mobile in general (as part of the effort to stave off orders from the CC?)

Doing great deals for prepaid/consumer postpaid is all well and good, but you (TNZ/Voda) dont want to alienate the business customers either.

Does it really mean that Vodafone will earn less? (According to john)

Nah, I don't think so. Instead of cutting calls short, like less than a min, customers instead will pay for 3 whole mins. And after that, well, it's restricted to 021-021 / landline, so it's about the same anyway.

Same thing as double top-up. Customers like me will plunk in $200 when that promo comes up, and use my mobile a lot more then.

Ues the best of both worlds!!! I'm glad I have both networks.

Its getting very good now.
$10 TXT
Free Voda weekend TXT's
20c Photomessages for 300KB
3 min hours off peak on t'com
3 min 2hours weekday off peak on Vodafone. (on account too!)

Do they make any money? but we want CAPS!!!!! just like in Australia!

More money better spent on the handsets!!!!!

I liked the bit in the vodafone Terms and conditions that has about
"In fact, if you only made Let Yourself Go calls on a plan with 200 included minutes - like Motormouth - your included minutes would give you up to 8,000 minutes of calling at no extra cost. That's a whole lot of talking"

ha ha ha. Poor handset though my i-mate pocketpc has over 4000 hours on it.. that's a poor poor phone!
