Texting XT from vodafone: cheaper option Page 1 / 2

17¢ is painful [prepaid vodafone]
2° is 9¢
what else, get an XT phone just for texting XT humans?

chewed through about $2 yesterday in a quick text parry

On XT you can text Vodafone for no extra cost if you're on one of the text plans. Prepaid or Postpaid.


0800xford, Aug 21, 11:23pm
that's awesome [and how it should be] vodafone are punishing us for texting XT

Perhaps you could just walk out of the basement and talk to your mum directly and save the $2 per day

suicidemonkey, Aug 21, 11:33pm
Ohhhhhh snap.

what's your number poxy? we'll have a TMMB texting party.

0800xford, Aug 21, 11:53pm
pretty tempting, but how much does it cost to text a 2° number?
if you get to keep your number shouldn't be the same price? ! ?

XT texts 2 degrees for no extra cost too.

i'm trying to find out how much it costs a vodafone customer to text a 2° number, the vodafone site is awful isn't it.
on the "starter 2000" plan apparently

"TXTs sent to other networks in New Zealand are charged at 20 cents per message. "

ouch

suicidemonkey, Aug 22, 12:12am
Haha. Yeah it's confusing. So many different rules.

Do you go blind TXTing yourself?

0800xford, Aug 22, 12:18am
2° looks pretty easy, just sign up and you're away, i think... ?
i can even use the same phone.
my buttons are a bit sticky so i could do with a new unit.

edit: nope, i've stuffed that up already ha ha oops

So do we get a thread now about how one phone is a dollar more than another, and so on?

cybertao, Aug 22, 12:24am
Telecom has invested a lot of moolah building the XT network in the hopes of crushing other networks; current or future. They need to climb upwards toward domination as quickly as possible to recoup profit and entrench future profits.
They are offering that big carrot to accelerate the process of getting everyone to sign up to XT. Buying an XT phone is only helping that situation and letting Telecom play you for a chump. When they don't need the carrot anymore, they will start using the stick.

0800xford, Aug 22, 12:31am
may as well just roll with 2° then?

paddaricko, Aug 22, 12:43am
how rude! Poxy is ignoring us. C'mon mate, what's it gunna take for a little response. I know you want to. Liven up what is a bleak looking Sunday outside.

He has got his sidekick to do the talking for him.

0800xford, Aug 22, 1:00am
czech it out mangs, $149 for this piece of awesome http://is. gd/evmdb

That seems alright as a basic phone for calling/texting. Not for data usage though.
The other bells and whistles such as mp3, radio, and bluetooth makes it look good for the price.

0800xford, Aug 22, 1:45am
it's for texting only ha ha

btoogood, Aug 22, 2:32am
with 2degrees there $10 text pack, you can text any network, same with XT. But in our house we have all changed to 2D find it alot better than XT

You can get txt600 addon on your vodafone mobile

0800xford, Aug 22, 5:46am
hey get this, i went into DSE and they have the exact same deal as the 2° site
free $10 text deal, cool.
pity the phone keypad is awful.

vodafone "simply prepay" is 12¢ texts to ANY network
the "simple" plans seem ok i suppose

jcmp21, Aug 22, 6:21am
I have a proper job and I get free texting from my work phone and from the web.
