kfella2000:manta: BTW, I forgot to say above that numbers starting 0227, 0228 and 0229 are NOT going to be released, according to the cust serv chap.
I dont know if that CSR has told you the truth or not there as there is a number 022888 8888 listed on Trade me and the bidding on that number believe it or not is up to $3210 at the moment. So I dont think they would only release one number in those higher ranges and not the rest. I am like comradehunt and have a number in the 0229 range I have in mind too so I hope that CSR is wrong about it too.
Four_seven: As others have said, the procedure is as follows:
Call 200 to setup PIN (also activates phone) - Do not bother with voicemail setup yet
ahmad: Let it be know that this is 2 Degrees's first broken promise.

Come on, they haven't confirmed or denied anything yet. Most indicatations point to the number ranges being opened up over time. In fact I would go as far as to say that the responses on the trademe auction are about as official as any word you would get here.
