Please note Geekzone is not an official channel for Vodafone NZ as you have already been advised by Nate on page 2 of this thread



I am not looking for a channel to let vodafone know about its problems.... 

Just want to warn other geekzone users out there that they should be cautious when using the facebook, iphone/android apps. Facebook browsing is NOT free. (as advertised).  

Unless of course my above statement is wrong, then Vodafone can advise otherwise...  


As advised by Johnr & Nate - use the Official Vodafone Channels to get the answer to your questions.

That would be the Vodafone Forums, telephone or email.

sbiddle:
IMHO the problem here isn't Vodafone's network or usage metering. It's the fact attempting to zero rate these products is a brain dead business idea and simply can't be done in real life without the issues that some people are experiencing. 

Capturing twitter traffic should be easy - it's all through an API. Things get slightly more complex when SSL is then added but through IP address ranges this is possible. Now things get compex - traffic such as twicpic etc isn't zero rated - if your twitter app starts accessing 3rd party sites such as twitpic for embedded images, or an advertising site for the build in ads you ARE going to be charged for traffic. Likewise on Facebook much of the content is 3rd party and does not come from Facebook servers.


What? Are you suggesting Vodafone don't really understand data?  Please, do you expect me to believe that?  Next you'll be suggesting they did something really dumb like buy iHug!

They're just not that silly.

Are you actually going to address the points SBiddle made instead of just making a pointless appeal to authority?

I think it was a thing called "sarcasm" (usually with funny connotations), not "an appeal to authorithy"...
