Any pricing plans are going to cause a stir. Thankfully we aren’t being screwed as badly as the Canadians are by Rogers.
But from The Heralds web site in reaction to the iPhone plan announcement there has been some signs of revolt. However as many people who bother to take the time to write comments have pretty strong views, this is of course only strong reaction from some people.
“This pricing proves New Zealanders pay far higher mobile costs than most civilized countries! AT&T have far better plans!, And Americans complain that they are getting ripped off! Our mobile rates have been to high for to long!”
And Canada thought they were getting reamed with their iphone plans?
Vodafone plans have sucked since they started forcing on-peak minutes with every plan.
Vodafone! bite me.
This put the nail in the vodafone iphone coffin for me. I’m sticking with my hacked imported edge iphone.
What a sad day for Vodafone – corporate greed reigns large. Must be a bit sad for the ‘team’ at Vodafone – all the hype and they can’t even keep their website up! And they’re a telco!
What do I think? I think Vodafone are a bunch of (oh wait I can’t say that out loud can I?). Serriously a 16GB iPhone on their 1GB plan will cost you at least $6349 over 24 months.
Ouch $6349, is a little steep, considering you could get a late model car for that price and drive around NZ instead of google maps and street view.
