Emailed Slingshot before and asked if iTalk counted towards data usage.
One support person said yes, the other said no. Who is correct?

If you are using Slingshot ADSL I would assume that data is zero rated as iTalk is a Slingshot product.  I'm sure someone cleverer than I can confirm.

I plan on doing that, just want to be sure if calls go towards data usage or not before I join.

Slingshot have no zero rated data, you pay for every byte (outside the the free data period)

Just to confirm - iTalk does count toward your data usage with us.

Sorry for the confusion caused by receiving two different answers from our contact centre team. LMK if you have any other questions about this.

Oops. Sorry about that.
I use it a lot, so didn't stop to think of it as text speak. Cheers for the heads up!

It means 'let me know'.
