I have to agree with Brad :/

Would be nice though if they brought out something similar to TCNZ's 'prepaid' $10 txt... as I don't consider free txt weekends to be much of a comparison nor do i consider on account 'you choose' to muster up beside it either.

Free text weekend is only good for text spamming which irritates me! $10 text 24/7 is a great deal for me, i never send more than 300 in a month but i send most of them during the week so until VF brings out a comparable deal i could never consider switching, unless it was so i could get an N93

From my point of view free TXT weekends was great, as most serious TXTers would have both a Vodafone to use on the weekend and a Telecom mobile to use during the weekdays. Now if we think about it Telecom gets $10 per mobile (assuming they send 50 or more txt messages), and what does Vodafone get from these users who have both?? Nothing!! Brilliant!!

That’s why I never saw free txt weekends as a long term promo, just wasn’t logical.

Cheers

SO far, Free Text Weekends has been around for 15 months ( it was launched in March 2005) - so they have been around for a long term period.

Point taken. I was looking at it from a consumer’s point of view, but yes one must look at it from a commercial point as well to gain a balanced picture.

I guess it comes down to what you define as the 'long' term, sorry but I'll stick with my original comment on this one.

Cheers

All I can say about free SMS been extended is watch the Vodafone.co.nz website for the next few days.

If anything happens I am sure it will be on there

PS I don't know whats happening so please don't ask maybe nothing will happen (no more been SPAMed on the weekend)
