Red is selling the plans of VF. They seem very bargain. 
Air 60 mins + Txt 600 + BestMate = $24.99
Air 120 + Txt 600 + BM = $39.99

http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catalog/electronics/phones/txtnchat 

I am waiting for the new plan for the loyalty.

Text and Chat Extra looks really good. That ad is annoying at the top of the page though; doesn't seem to be any way to turn it off and it keeps repeating!
Anyway - is that plan 120 anytime minutes to any network? If so, I'm sold.

wow, that repeating ad is incredibly annoying.


It seems the 'extreme' plan the same minutes, txt etc as the normal one, but $15 a month more expensive?

doesn't seem very 'extreme'.

ETA: ah, I see. you get $100 off a mobile, but have a 24 month contract.  $15 more per month for 2 years to get $100 discount upfront.  awesome.

"TXT n Chat Extra" looks like the one for me.
So is all billing etc, still handled by Vodafone, or does it come from The Warehouse?
Is there a downloadable .pdf of the plans available?

Does anyone know if these plans can be used to get the $30 monthly discount on Vodafone's naked broadband?

Could someone from Vodafone confirm to me if the unlimited texts and call to your bestmate still apply? I'm assuming its just Best Mate 1000 now?

Had a look at The Warehouse tonight, there's a screen display thing which runs through the plans, but no brochure or anything that I could take away to read through them :(

That's weird, right?

Yes they still apply and it's not capped to Bestmate/s 1000 as this is only for Prepay Bestmate/s

Yea I'm a bit baffled by that one too. Surely there must be something extra that they've failed to mention. Data maybe?

They are, but I have to put up with that annoying, non-stoppable ad. Plus I wanted something on paper to show my wife.

While you're there John, I have a large credit on my VF account. If I took up one of these plans, it would be transferred over, right? The Warehouse is merely acting as a MNVO, right? Services like international texting etc would be unaffected? Thanks for your help :)

The warehouse is not a MVNO by any means. Yes the credit would stay
