We all know VF love their pre-pay customers more than On-account.

VF have many deals that are avalible only to Pre-pay, does anyone know of hand which deals they provide (such as 200 min for $12) that OC do not have?

Okay from what I know, OC has better calling rates and text addons. But really they $2 for 60 minutes is a killer... Is that still only prepay?

Your kidding? What would be interesting is to know the statistics on who and how many PXTs are sent, I cant imagine it would be very significant, but i could be wrong.

I think the point to this thread is people feel left out; you can't give one kid a sweet and not the other even if the other kid has more to start with. People do feel excluded, even if they shouldn't.

I for one check the news often hoping Vodafone will release some wonderful news regarding new products for its on account customers as this $12 prepaid deal seems like a big leap forward for Vodafone and NZ.

on account customers get the option of a several hundred dollar handset subsidy if they are wiling to take a contract. prepay customers have to pay full price for their handset.

Well i'll be damned!

I wasn't aware of this change, finally OA get the same low rates as Prepay for international calling!

I had a massive bitch about this a few weeks ago when it came out only for PrePay, but now it seems they've added OA to the promo too.... very nice, thank you :)

Bit confused why OA wasn't included from the start though, but none the less i'm a happy chappy now.

Or get somebody from China to divert your call back to the NZ number of your choice.
