I just upgraded my phone from “pay as you go” to bill. the reason was mainly
it worked out cheaper for me and also it offered me full internet access, not
just WAP access. Ill explain more below!
I’m with Vodafone Ireland. there call charges for
ready to go, or pay as
you go as its usually called, in the day range from 45c to 64c. its 45c to ring
an other Vodafone phone, and 64c to ring a land line or other network. during the
week day nights it ranges from 13c to 26c and same with weekends. its 13c to
ring Vodafone numbers off peek, 26c to ring all networks off peak, 26c for land
lines during the weeknights and 13c for landlines for weekends. text messages
are 13c all the time. its 2c per kilobyte but only for
WAP. on their bill i get
300min of calls off-peak, worth between .39 and .78 and i also get 30min
of calls peak, worth between .13.50 and .19.20. I also get 3mb of
GPRSS Data. it costs
me .50: .38 for the calls and .12 for the data. the data would originally cost
me about .60! the total cost would be anywhere between .112.50 and .157.20. it
works out a LOT cheaper for me on bill! only thing I don’t get is text messages.
i probably will use a fair amount of these. that will be extra on the bill. Also
so far today i have used 1mb of the 3mb data i got free. It costs .7 per MB
after the first 3, or 0.7c per kilobyte. Actually, on
here</a> they say its .3 per Mb over the 3mb. they said on the phone that it was
.7. Hmmmm. I’m hoping its only .3! a lot cheaper!
