Foo: Why do I never read anything about amazing service and Slingshot in the same sentence? 


Quality counts, cheapest option is rarely the best value when you take into account quality! 


I always thought there were three parts of the equation: cost, speed and quality and pick any two? ;-)

Whoa, getting way off topic here.

Please keep your comments in line with the 15% surcharge, this is not the place to discuss Slingshot's pricing or standard of delivery - please start a new topic if you wish to discuss this.

Hi John are you saying that the $3.45 was a true and legitimate charge?

I thought he was saying that there was no 15% surcharge in terms of Vodafone.

Already know that Vodafone, Telecom and 2 Degrees don't add GST to zero-rated charges so I thought he was referring to Slingshot billing.

Anybody erroneously charged 15% on top of their SMS donations should be receiving an email today apologising and outlining the incoming credit.

Sorry for any stress!

Hey thanks for that. Good job. And as I requested via Twitter I hope that someone can review my original phone call with a call center team leader (I can provide the name if required) because the way it was dealt with only served to inflame the situation IMO.

Didn't need to have come to this.

Am I somehow excluded from receiving this email or has it not been sent out yet?

I've always felt bad for those with Slingshot that don't have the confidence to query their billing and it's really on their behalf that I pursue a lot of these things.

And a little customer waits. Interesting exercise.
