kirip: So the 2degrees email has The Samsung Galaxy S III is yours FREE on a Pay Monthly $89 Plan with a 24 month term ($1049 RRP). I was just looking into early termination fees (as I don't need as expensive plan and will likely not be in NZ for 24months, probably should just buy out right).
"The early termination charge is the amount calculated by multiplying your monthly Plan charge by the
number of months remaining on the term of your Plan as at your final Billing Date, provided that:
 for the $89, $129,and $149 Plans the early termination charge shall not exceed $500"

This would essentially mean that I could get the phone on the $89 plan and then terminate plan by paying $500 (I assume you have to pay at least one month so total const $589)

So can anyone think of anything stopping me from signing up to the plan and then exiting the contract (thus getting the phone for essentially the early termination fee)?


I called up and they said this was the case. If you sign up for the $89 plan and cancel you keep the phone and just pay the $500. Weird.

They couldn't find any reference to getting the s3 free on the $89 plan though. What email was that in. I will probably sign up for that plan.


If you signed up for the pre release email which is still at http://phones.2degreesmobile.co.nz/samsung-galaxy-siii




This sounds too good to be true... Wonder how many people are going to try this now.

Although in a previous email they said that they wouldn't transfer my number until the 8/6/12. "The transfer will begin after 08/06/2012 at 13:00 and can take up to 1 working day to complete. Please leave your new device and sim off until your existing connection disconnects" So I'm told I can change that date now, which is good could have been a long week waiting to use it!
