OK, newbie here but I've done a few hours homework on XT vs VF plans / prices etc. Kinda just need a nudge in the right direction.

I'm an internerd addict so I want to get a mobile BB plan for my commute to Wellington during the week. Been into both XT and VF outlets. VF wins the "sell" handsdown, the Telecom rep just didn't sound convincing at all and hinted at network issues that were being worked through. But then there are some on here that are raving about XT (which is what I want to do, rave about it - it's hyped up enough!) But I check out the VF coverage map and it looks like I'm covered pretty well...I don't get that confidence from Telecom so far.

So then since I'm looking to get this Nokia 6121 for its HSDPwhateveritis ability I can save on a vodem stick as well. Bit of a bugger it's not dual sim, but still, save a few hundy there. That makes sense to me, or am I missing anything?

The next thing is ... can anyone recommend "the best" videocalling software to use on mobile BB to minimise my data use? - Skype sounds like it sucks the 1's and 0's bigtime, even at idle, so I'm looking to use Googlechat (with vid).

Many thanks, Matt
