I am going to buy an iphone 3GS. I want to buy it online with iPhone 60 so I get the dock.  I am about 15 months through a 24month youchoose plan. If I choose to put my existing number on my sim, will it cancel my old plan and replace it with the new one? Because I thought that to get the iPhone subsidy price I had to pay a early termination fee, however in the checkout it doesn't add a early termination fee to my invoice. Still says $650. So I am presuming it just changes my plan to a iphone one? 


Also, how long would postage  take to Christchurch?


Thank you :)

You are still under contract as advised in your post you may need to break that contract or you may be able to do a early resign but you will be charged a fee possibley of $150 + gst for early resign and more to break your contract. Check with customer service please

and the phones are not posted out but couriered

Yes, I found the 3 day thing.

But does that mean I'll have 1 sim card on my current plan and 1 on a iphone plan if I buy online and transfer my number?

Damn, just checked and the free 3GB of data offer is gone. I was hoping they'd extend it. Hopefully more offers coming :)

You have a active connection under contract now already! Do you want 2 active connections under contract paying 2 invoices per month?

Oh.

I'll just head down to a vodafone store tomorrow and get one.

One last thing, can I add add-ons to iPhone plans? 200 texts may not be enough. Is it possible to add text 600 on?


cheers :)

The iphone plan add ons are on the Vodafone site

But these have just changed today as well

But do not forget your connection you have now is already under contract

Yup, around $150. I'd happily shell out that just to replace this slow iphone 2G that seems to lag horribly for no reason at all D:
