I signed up a few smart plans through Vodafone about 15 days before the 'Double minutes' for the life of your contract promo began.

I therefore received the text promo offer of 'Double minutes for 3 months'. This is now about to expire...

What will happen? Will I be stuck with half the minutes of new smart phone plan peoples? 
I know JohnR has told us exciting changes are coming, but I am getting restless, as now that I am a custom to 240 minutes, I think it will be too hard to lower the usage of my phone.

Is there an alcoholics anonymus equivalent I can join? 

but seriously, can anyone shed some light?

As you mentioned, when you signed up for your Smart Plan, you got a Txt Promotion for 3 months.

The Double Minutes promotion "for the life of the plan" came in after your Txt Promo, so I would assume that would be the end of your double minutes, after the 3 month period. I could be wrong, but that's my impression.

Changes are coming by the sounds of it, perhaps around August 24 this year, as far as the rumours that are circulating around are concerned.

JohnR never advised exciting changes are coming! The official coms from Vodafone NZ did

Ignore the bit about the 3GB bundle as everyone knows things changed

Thanks John
