Just got a question for any of the vodafone guys here. I was looking at getting the new iphone 3gs as vodafone had a good discount going for the 130 plan (handset was 199, now 399) apperently the 199 was a limited time offer and I didn't realise it was limited time so I've missed it.
Question is, will this be repeated or another similar discount offered soon? I'm gutted I didn't act at the time but after starting a new business and everything cash flow is hindering my toy buying potential. Cheers for any help

Hi red,

are you sure you weren't looking at the 8GB 3G model instead? that one is $199 on the 130 plan.

Still a pretty good deal for a $1300 phone!

Just following up as I gotta give credit where it's due.

I found vodafone had failed to remove their google ad regarding this offer so I sent a screen shot of it to Paul Brislen and today someone rang me to offer the 3gs for 199 on the 130 plan as advertised.

so nice one vodafone! thanks alot.
