Vodafone for my mobile as they were the best operator for roaming while I was traveling over sea's at the time I bought it.

I have both Telecom and Vodafone data devices because I can.

If its any use I also have a Vodafone Australia sim for when my roaming did not work in aussie last year and a T-mobile UK from when I lived in the UK a few years ago and all still work.

I've been with Vodafone for about 8 years. Mainly cause I liked the phones available to the GSM network.
I've always been prepay up until mid 2008, when I went on contract. I get what I need and don't have any problems, Although I'm not really what you'd call an 'intricate' user. I text, make a few calls and browse the net etc.

I don't really see a need to move to Telecom. I'm happy where I am.

Telecom XT. Because double the minutes for two years was great, and my iPhone 3GS runs so much better on XT.

I was prepaid with Telecom until they told me I could have a great plan for free a couple of years ago.
