Try it, call 451 from Vodafone mobiles...

Me and about half of my mates got a msg, offerring a double (yes, double, not 50% bonus) topup.....  And hey, it sure is legit from Vodafone...

So let's see....  Double top up, and the $2 deal going on, it'll mean that I get...  10cent calls?  $1 for 10mins, to almost 80% of mobiles and landlines around the world!  Including video call too!

Sweet.......  Just some news for you guys, hope you all prepay-ers got a double top up promo msg too!

The selective double/50% top up has been around for quite a long time. While I disagree with the concept and feel that they're shafting their On Account customers, its nothing new.

Well us poor folks on Telecom don't get any of those double top up deals. I remember when VF had their huge big double top up 3 years ago i put $400 on my account. I somehow manged to blow through $800 credit in 2 and a half months.
