Are there any coming out within the next month or two? I heard a rumour there might be new ones.

Hope it's $10/month unlimited text messages to any nz network for all prepay users without having to signup for it.

An all-network SMS plan would be great for prepay users. We wait and hope.

why not? XT has done it (and many other networks around the world), so clearly the idea does hold some merit

I'm no economist but perhaps seeing the success of Telecom's Non-stop text may give Vodafone confidence to release a similar plan.

How do you rate Non-stop text a success? It may be a success in terms of saturation at the low end of the prepay market, but whether TCNZ make a decent profit off it is another question....

Vodafone are unlikely to release a $10 unlimited text plan as it doesn't make business sense.

IIRC Vodafone are more after the on account and Business users, hence a Unlimited Text Option wouldn't make any sense for there business model,

Where as Telecom has brought in Unlimited Text as it allready had the "Teenage Prepay Txter" that uses 2000txt on CDMA so wouldn't cost them that much in other network texts I would imagine

EDIT: I take it back, I'm taking the highroad and not giving in to the temptation to make obvious comments here...
