    Well, judging on the New Zealand Vodafone plans, they suck! Looks like it will be Optus all the way....unless Telstra can pull something out....which I severely doubt.

    Ah, sorry, there's been a misunderstanding, I thought you were saying if they did similar pricing to Optus.

    My bad.

    Are you saying Optus reception is better? In Sydney Metro? I've only ever been with Vodafone but I like the look of the Optus plans so I'm thinking of jumping ship. Anyone have an opinion on quality of coverage in Sydney Metro compared to Voda?

    Interesting interview NZ presenter had with their voda guy..someone who said he hasn't seen any other carrier in the world's plan for comparison (so they've released plans blind) and the prices are as low as $50/month...well whoopi-doo! I'm not paying a grand NZ to pay $50 a month....and his comparison to NZ'ers paying over $1200 for a gen1 iPhone are totally irrelavent given they would own the device outright and have no ongoing costs...to buy an iPhone for $250 you have to pay $6000 in monthly access over 24months....incroyable!

    Hey Guys,

    First time ever on mactalk well any forum to be exact.....

    Just wanted to know probs answered a lot of times before but in all my limited knowledge of technology I was wondering if anyone knew if you could access Microsoft Outlook WebAccess on safari....I know I can just get IT to set it up but I'd rather just check email when I need to than have it pushed into me as soon as they come. and Like the Idea that If I loose my phone No one can access my work emails....

    and btw poor NZ what crappy pricing

    I can access it in its basic form from safari (no flashy stuff) so I think mobile safari would be much the same.

Next source was another person who had emailed this department head saying that he was fed up with waiting and was going to go terminate his contract with vodafone and sign up with Optus. The guy then said "hold fire. Pricing coming very soon" now of course, very soon is what they have been saying all along, but I am thinking it will be tomorrow. Hopefully Telstra joins the party tomorrow.
    Indeedy. The e-mail said pricing should be available tomorrow morning - which would be in line with everything else that's been said, including the "full list of stores" the Vodafone spokesperson said would be available tomorrow in that SMH article. Along with an invite to the media event. I'll do my best to screenshot a copy and post it here for you to have a gander.

    So, it would seem the wait is almost over. The next interesting bit will be the damn plans themselves and just how Vodafone is going to handle the orders for iPhgnes. The fact they're doing a 7am "launch event" on Friday morning has probably wiped out the possibility of a midnight launch though, which sucks.

    I think also..the chances of Voda doing something like O2 are diminishing rapidly...the logistics required to process potentially thousands of payments and registrations in what now amounts to two days would be nigh on impossible...so to is selling then asking to have the store of pickup nominated...so I guess it now comes down to ordering online for delivery sometime next week or taking a chance at the store.

    I don't mind, I'll consider camping out, but not sure i will, just get up early most likely.

    Hey, where is the Hobart Vodafone store? Never been a Voda customer before and I can't figure out how to get a store listing from their website >.<
