ahmad: simon you still haven't explained who is forcing you to pay $1.39/min for an international call.


Don't ask questions you know the answer to, it's really quite stupid.

Obviously no one is forcing me to pay $1.39 a minute. 

The point is, and you know this but you obviously feel the need to waste time and turn this into an issue, i don't want to have to swap out SIM cards to save $1.29 per minute on calling.
 

If you don't want to be asked questions that we know the answer to (by two people independently no less), then don't make an untrue statement then get upset at being questioned over it.

It's Geekzone. A degree of rational discussion is implied and for the most part generated.

if it is not important enough to you to swap sim cards to save the money,  then it sounds like Voda have hit the nailont he head with their pricing. 
They can attract the people who are willing to pay only 10c with the prepaid offer, and keep the people who are willing to pay more on the higher tariff.  Good job voda I say.

If you aren't even willing to swap a SIM out, then I have to question why you are complaining. You don't seem to mind the higher price very much at all.
  Say you make a 5 minute international phone call on average.  It costs you 50c on the prepaid sim or >$6 on your postpaid SIM.


It takes, what, 1 minute max to swap out the sim?  What you are saying is that you value that extra minute of your time more than you value the differnece in price (>$5) of the phone call.
You value your time at $300 an hour!

Ok, this isn't really getting anywhere so i'll stop moaning now.

I think I've made my points, this kind of thing just annoys me.
