Take a look at some of the call plans.....

Anytime Go 400... $213 a month and we'll give you 400 minutes which works out to be $0.53c a min. Ow....

On Go Onebill MatesRates I can pay $0 up front and get calls for 49c a minute.

Mobilise 400 From $170.. we'll give you 400 minutes..... Works out to 43c a minute....a little better but still a large outlay.

On Vodafone PrePay you can pay 49c, and have no hassles, no bills and not worry about blowing your free minute cap or not using them up effectivley.

One catch,,,, You need to carry two phones,
an 021 for calling 021 - 021
an 027 for calling 027 - 027

You benefit from the best of both worlds, $10 TXT, PXT, Picture messaging. Free TXT wkends, 3 minute hour, Let yourself go......... Remember,,, phones are small now.

All 021 Prepay/027 Go Onebill options are also Per-second charging after first minute.

Moderate to Heavy off-peak users will be better off on the Archaic "free" minutes plans offered.

This is WHY we need regualtion,,,, Inconsitencies between their pricings.

Why the low users get the deals and amazing deals means they really are stripping big business.

My old website is still up... from like 2001. My web design scillz heir are very skool lyke.

..::Get Mobile::..!!

Was the results of a research company I once worked for examining this,, I haven't bothered to look for some time, Company went bust so I chucked it up and forgot about it till today.

you might also find some interesting tidbits.

OH MY GOD.. I knew i'd posted this somewhere... I thought It was on the UCNZ forums.


The "assembler" now known in a slightly mutated form as Vodafone's "You Choose"

another plan idea I had, long fogotten about... A little simililar to Australia's "Caps"

System 3 "Name your Price"

Commit to an amount of $10 $20 $30 etc and we will give you discounts, cheaper text/peak calling/free minutes
