Today we have just come back from a lengthy trip overseas and are dead keen to give 2d a try so went to the local Countdown supermarket to buy a couple of SIMs. Sorry, we are out of stock they said. Just got a whole lot more the other day and they have gone already. Everyone else around this area is out of stock too.
So, I tried the next nearest supermarket which happened to be a Foodtown. Sure enough, they were out of stock there too.
Hopefully, someone at 2d is reading this and can help to remedy the situation. PM me if you want the locations of the supermarkets in question.
Fortunately, my nearest DSE branch had stock, although not many by the look of it.
SIM cards are now installed and working in my wife's mobile phone as well as mine. We can make and receive calls, and TXTs are working. I had a simple question, so I called Customer Services and spoke to a real person within seconds as promised. Better yet, he answered my question immediately. Couldn't be happier at this stage.
Our plan is to trial the service for a few weeks, and if we are still happy, we will burn our bridges with Vodafone and port both numbers across. After 11 years, I have got fed up with paying 89c per minute on prepay so it's time to give them the flick. More power to 2degrees!
