If you wish to continue that subject, another thread has been started here
willnz: NZC have long said they are not looking for high end users, or data users. They're after the el-cheapo users and I guess they're hoping they can bring enough of them over to make it worthwhile.
TK: When doing a network scan on the phone, I seldom see nzcomms unless I have the phone in dual mode - is this a depressing revelation of their final network or are they leaving the 3g off till they launch? Would be pretty lame if you never get 3g on it.. So lame that they wouldnt be an option as far as I am concerned...
The business operators with iphones/blackberries etc are paying a hell of a lot more and need the services so are a much better target.
2g is too slow for doing anything like checking mail or sending photos, and dual mode missed way too many calls, plus 2g drops the data connection when you get or make a call.
