Warehouse stationery mailer has some of the new phones in it.

Look at page 1, then click on page 8. What made me look was I saw their advert on TV last night advertising 2degrees and their $79 Nokia 1202 phone, so I though if they aren't holding back in the ad, they may already have a mailer out with some good info in it, and there was!

Yay!

2 Degrees are offering the Nokia E63 for $50 dollars cheaper than the Vodafone Online Store is.
Nice way to enter the Market 2d!

Woolworths online shopping has the Nokia 1202 for $79 listed, I was hoping to find them all listed there :(

EDIT, no actually they have the Samsung E1100t ($99), and the $2 simcards listed as well.

EDIT EDIT, no now the E1100T is gone from that page on Woolworth's site, 3 hours after I first saw it there.

You can buy the $2 dollar 2 Degrees Sim Card from the Foodtown Online Store, I assume that this is the same with Woolworths?

I think its all under Progressive along with Countdown. I checked both online shopping sites, the Woolworths one just has the extra phone over the Foodtown one.

I might go for a cruise to both places and see if either have already stuck a display up or anything. I notice the warehouse stationery ad says instore soon, available Aug 5. Surely someone, somewhere nationally will accidentally put them out early?

Note at Warehouse Stationery the topups are between $20 and $100, no $10 topups.

3ish hours later EDIT: Now been to Woolworths, no sign of 2D there, BP connect staff had no idea they were even selling 2D stuff starting in 2 days, and Warehouse Stationery had the 2Degrees triangular display all set up, but no phones or prices on it yet.

the IVR would only do a $20 topup as well, looks like there will still be a reason to stick with telecom if you can only ever afford $10 topups...

Interesting info on Warehouse Stationery site:

With 2degrees, you will get real choice for mobile calling and texting as well as simple, fair mobile phone pricing.[It says calling and texting, some people are guessing 2? will concentrate on calling only.]

2degrees is giving you one free chance to change your mobile phone number to something a bit more personal.

To swap over to the 2degrees network and keep your number or change it to something more personal, simply visit www.2degreesmobile.co.nz and register for 'Your 2degrees'. This process usually takes 24 hours.

With 2degrees you have control by paying in advance for what you plan to use there are no unpleasant surprises and no contracts![There are different types of prepay. As I guessed, no term plans.]

All top-ups on 2degrees are 'magic', which means you get free stuff when you top-up! [The lions, giraffes and coffee stuff.]

Caller ID and VoiceMail Box services are included, at no additional cost (retrieval costs apply). [No free voicemail.]

That went down when I texted so I am assuming that they had BS info loaded pre launch to avoid accedentally tipping off when someone sent out wokring simcards as they did.

I think the idea is that you add it to your other grocery shopping.

I have had bad experiences with shopping for grocery and other supermarket stuff online so will stick to DSE and the $6 courier charge (with the massive box)
