Ok finally placed my pre-order with 2degrees (256Gig card and free wireless charger) and moved my number over to them last night.   Really can't go past the unlimited calls/text and 25gigs of data for $70.  I will miss the free spotify from spark but I pay for youtube red so will just start to use google play music now (as that is included free).  

 

Only other things I will miss from spark are the cheap movie tickets (which are going anyway) and their phone app as the 2degrees one is really crap.

I think I'll move 4 phones over to them on Monday. I rung Vodafone to see if they could match the 25Gig but they said the max they do is 15. So same price but extra 10 Gig. I also like the idea of the wireless charger.

I was surprised to see the note 8 on display at harvey norman.
I am so glad because it is way better than i thought. It fits in the hand nicer than the s8+. The sharper edges gives a better grip and performs nicer when typing. The display also looks bigger because of the added .1" but also because of the sharper curve.

It also feels faster than the s8 variants and more robust. So soo surprised and relieved, because i thought i was buying it more because i needed a new phone. But now i can ohnestly say its almost on point. Had the fingerprint scanner been under the display, would have been complete. Next year. Next year.

If you guys are interested, harvey norman were offering me a pre order deal.

Bonus Jabra Soul Mate Bluetooth Speaker.
Monster iSport Bluetooth Headphones.
256GB MicroSD Card.
Samsung Wireless Charger.

What you had to do, was pay harvey norman $1499 outright and sign up with 2° on a 24 month contract plan (after one month eligable termination) plus $100 payed to 2°.
$1599 total.

The wireless charger and sd card comes from 2°

I never took it because it sounded like too much hassle.

2 degrees have some of their own cell towers, but whereever they do not have service, they piggy back off vodafone. So it effectively would be the same.

Saying that, the piggy back service might only be for 3g
