AGS:

I think everyone has forgotten the big difference between New Zealand and other countries we are not that big Australia alone has cities with more people in them than New Zealand's entire population, this will make the plan and phones chaeper due to competition. Sure you may be paying so much money over the course of a contract but you do it on any of Vodafone or Telecom's voice plans. I have it on really good authority that Vodafone is paying over $950 per unit for the 8GB I-Phone  and each I-Phone plan Apple gets a cut per month. So yesit may look high but have we taken in the size of the customer base, the cost of the handset and how it compares with Vodafone's other voice plans. To get an I-Phone you do not have to go on an I-Phone plan you can go on a normal voice plan and do it over 36 months if you want and get the same subsidies. It is all about personal choice. Remember also Telecom have not annouced their network or they will get the I-Phone and it may not work out of the major cities, so you can sit and moan and compare and for some hope Telecom will be the saviour but there is no guarantees. We New Zealands size and customer base compared to the rest of the world and also have we compared these plans to what other Vodafone plans there are. We are all jumping up and down but is it not time we were a little more realistic

Yep, not phased by iphone plans at all. I'm on talk 250 plus Bestmate and txt 600. So the iphone i500 plan I'm going to is cheaper that what I have now and I get 500 data thrown in.


Go Vodafone, I'm happy!
