I have to be completely honest, there really isnt' much numbers to choose from the 0220~ range.
It's either locked or all taken, it's rediculous...

Who here agrees they should just open up the entire number range so we can have a complete
list to choose from.

Because when I choose from the 0220~ range, it doesn't feel much different from popping into different vodafone stores and choosing from their list of simcards....nothing that makes me go, WOW!


OH WELL...

Do you have a choice of numbers when you join Telecom or Vodafone?. I think not. Is 2 degrees supposed to offer everything. They have only been in the marketplace for 11 days. Give them a break.

Telecom and Vodafone do offer a choice, when you go into their retailers they
tell give you a stock of sim card numbers to choose from, and there are quite a lot their
retail stores everywhere. Or when you go onto a plan you can do the same thing
but even better. They allow you to choose any number you like, as long as it's not taken.

Whereas 2 degrees, they say you can choose any number from the 022 range,
but then they say only 0220~
and then they lock most of the good numbers..so......pretty "rxtarded"...

I have given them a break by not complaining more about their over 1 week delay on "your 2degrees",
and also their poor co-ordination and management skills of their CSR's...Still can't believe they all tell
different stories and don't work together....

Sooo, when can we expect them?

I'm holding off on using 2d for txt's and stuff till I can get a number that i'm after, no point in telling people to txt my original 2D number back if it's just going to change (eventually!)
