Re: New 1500A Plan

I read they will be offered to existing customers sometime in the future. The 'change fee' will be probably be charged at their 'nominal' rate at the time (i.e could be $0, could be $10, could be more?). I don't care about the $10 fee, i just want the plan.....also wouldn't mind the PAYG free SIM t...

Re: The Exetel 5-year club

First joined exetel in 2004 I believe, had many different services across 2 states and I keep coming back every time i move. Must be the product, price and nature of the company that draws me back.

Re: Victorian SMS message: Warning of upcoming weather conditi

Shouldn't they be using the "cell broadcast" capability of the cellular network to do a tower based broadcast rather than an sms, which is carrier specific.
