Trying to work out which of Vodafone's Byzantine You Choose plans would be the "best deal", but they all look really expensive. Recommendations, please: it's for a 3G phone used to check email with, 5 or so SMS a day, plus up to five calls a day. Phone is currently on an account plan.

starts with Choose 20, then you will get additional 2mins per month as part of the "switching" if you continue to use your existing phone.

Another point is, you can move up along Choose plan without incurring any penalty, but you cannot go down past your initial Choose plan. For example, you picked Choose 60, then next month comes, you reckon that you will use more and called Vodafone to move up to Choose {whatever}, that will switch over on the next billing cycle without penalty, and some month, you know that you will use less, for example going overseas for few months, you cannot go below Choose 60 (to Choose 20).

So start with Choose 20, then move up, or down whenever flexible with you.

I was on motormouth, and now on Choose 20 (22mins for $19.95), with TXT100 to anyone (in NZ) for $5.95, and a Mobilise Data 3MB for $10. total of $35.90+. That's way lower than my old motormouth plan.

Internet is my backyard...
