Mobile Number Portability...

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 5-Aug-2007 11:22

I agree with Taniwha... Why do the New Zealand mobile operators offer their new plans with contract (12 and 24 month contracts) only?

To lock you in? How bad of them. They not only lock you in, but lock you out.

I am really, really trying to port my Vodafone New Zealand number over to Telecom New Zealand. I have been a Vodafone New Zealand customer for almost ten years now, and I don't have a contract, so I am free to move to another operator.

But there's no way to move to another operator on their new plans without signing up for at least a 12 month contract. And I am on account, which means a good amount of money every month for those operators.

It means Telecom New Zealand is not getting my business, as much as I want to leave the Vodafone New Zealand ranks.

It is the same if you are on Telecom New Zealand and want to move to Vodafone New Zealand, as Taniwha found out.

How dumb of them.
