If you simply read some of the other posts the answer to your question would be perfectly clear. It's because in the HEADLINE of their ad's they do NOT say they will charge you as you go, there is NO premise of pro-rata billing.
Have a read of nyquists posts, they are as clear as anyone could possibly make them, as and far as I am concerned make the situation crystal clear.
Agreed. There's no helping some people. Frankly, there's an unfortunate element within the so called geek world which prides itself on doing anything to whip up a superiority complex and to laugh at the plight of the so called dumb, i.e. less technically advanced.
Some of the people who vehemently defend VF here fall into that exact category. "OH I know that when you purchase data it's normally not charged pro rata and it's $x for Y amount and data and if you don't use it all up too bad. Shame on you and don't complain. Hahahahah". There is little appreciation for issues of information assymetry between the trader and the average user, nor the need to compel straightforward and easily understandable advertising messages to promote efficiency in the markets.
Be mindful of another potential category: It is easy to presume all posters come from a position of neutrality. One poster has kindly indicated his bias to Vodafone, how many posters have undeclared bias? While Vodafone is not overtly presenting itself here, indeed conspicuoous by their absence, (I bet they are reading this though) there can be no assumption they are not covertly represented here. Could that also potentially explain why some might still be "...defending the indefensible."?
