Does anyone have any experience in this area?

The Slingshot call centre just say "look at the Vodafone pricing" as they claim their pricing is the same.

Vodafone charge 80c per text sent in Malaysia (as far as I can tell).

Slingshot charge 87c per text and insist this is correct.

Asking the call centre is getting nowhere, they just insist the pricing is the same as Vodafone and then when challenged say the bill is right.

It looks like they are charging GST on roaming calls but I haven't been able to check the bill yet to confirm.

Kiwipixter: Have a look here,

Thanks but that is call plus.  Are they the same company as slingshot?
