gimpy707: I have just spoken to my local vodafone store and they are ordering in 4 iphone 4s for my business and can pick up monday morning (public holiday in canterbury on friday). I don't see what the problem with vodafones current pricing is. I upgraded 8 of our mobiles onto vodafones business smart packages. Telecom cant get near these on value. I pay $150 per month get 1000 free minutes, free to call all landlines, have landline on mobile (which means my clients can call a landline number and not pay for the mobile charges, nor do I) plus reasonable data. The nearest telecom can get is 500 free minutes for $140 without the above extras. Plus vodafone gave me $1100 towards a new phone, which makes the 4s free also!! The only benifit to telecom is better data and maybe better coverage and speeds, but overall hard to beat VF.
jmosen: A quick search of the Telecom site hasn't revealed the answers to some questions I have.
If you're heading into a store to sign a contract with Telecom, what do you need to take with you. Not keen to wait in line only to find they want something I don't have.
I'm a Telecom custoemr for broadband and home phone, so is a print-out from the PDF of my recent bill sufficient?
I have a family member who is interested but currently has no Telecom account. Presumably he'll need some form of ID? How many do Telecom need and what is acceptable for ID? He doesn't drive.

cathy88:codyc1515:cathy88: I just had a looking at Vodafone's iPhone plan for iPhone 4 and found it ridiculous.
Did they change the price? I remember it was different when I got my iPhone 4 with them on a
Yes, they changed the pricing a few months ago. I went through this in detail on here a while back, the price on the $45 plan increased from $619 to $999 or so.
If thats the price for new plan might as well not get a plan with them .....

Lizard1977: My wife will be getting a 4S on Friday (hoping the queues won't be too bad in Palmy). The Telecom plans are looking pretty good, but I wanted to check whether the iPhone performs better on Vodafone or XT? My iPhone is on Vodafone and the 3G internet can be underwhelming at time I seem to recall reading that XT was better. Anyone who has used both want to confirm that XT is better for iPhones? Particularly in Palmerston North?
benmurphy66: Question about number porting related to a pending iPhone order on telecom. Can you sign-up to telecom, get a telecom number and then port your vodafone number over to it in a months time? i.e. port your number later? or must it be done at the time you sign the contract?
codyc1515:JimmyC: Anyone know if the 4S's new HSPA capabilities will provide better speed on VFNZ and\or XT?
It does have HSPA+ but nowhere on the Apple website does it say this. It does 14.4Mbps HSPA+.

SnowWookie: VF need to get their act together and start releasing info. They are literally losing customers every hour.
Teeps: Why are Vodafone claiming to be under NDA? I can understand why they couldn't say when the iPhone 4S was going to be released before Apple said so, but now the date has been released, Apple has started their own preorders last week and Telecom start theirs today, why would Vodafone be under any form of confidentiality agreement to Apple as there's no secrets!?
rawsoncj: Vodafone's "NDA" response is pretty comical. I have a strong feeling that "NDA" really means "Telecom caught us flat-out with those much lower handset subsidies, aaaahhhh what do we do?"
