The following link says that PXT to BestMate on superprepay is free yet I'm being charged 20 cents. I'm sure I wasn't getting charged when on account

Is there a difference in on account BestMate and Super prepay BestMate?

Can anybody help.

"With BestMates you can talk, TXT, PXT and video call up to 3 nominated Vodafone NZ mobile numbers from within NZ whenever you want, as much as you want, 24/7! "

Pre-paid best mate has always excluded PXT. On account best mate, includes PXT.

I cannot view your link, but I have never seen anywhere that stated it was included for pre-paid customers.

Does that mean you'll get free PXT added to prepay???
Why is BestMate different on prepay than on a plan anyway.
Had assumed after being on a plan that it would be the same. Took awhile to realise I was now being charged for Pxts.

Thanks anyway.

It's an incentive to go on account....

That's also not the only difference; BestMate is also cheaper OA:

2 BM for $10 or 3 BM for $12 as opposed to $6 each on prepay.
