    Default Txt price gone up again

    I have noticed my vodafone txt to another network is 20c per txt. Like it used to be in the olden days.

    I wondered where all my prepay money was going. most of my family friends are on 027.

    Looks like 2 degrees for me soon.

    I got a dual sim, phone with vodafona and 2 degrees sims, use the 2degrees for family on 2 degrees and vodafone for those who arent.

    I just wish that certain magazines that review phones as well as PCs would review some dual sim models, as my cheap chinese model has crap battery life and is so unintuitive.

    You know they offer a $12 / 2500txt SupaPrepay option right? Sure, 2d is $10 for the same thing, but both make the 20c/txt thing irrelevant...

    Is this fone of yours GSM only or is there a 3G SIM as well??

    The Big name brands have a few Dual sim models , you often have to dig around to find them though
    My Samsung Slider is dual.
    My Cheapy Chinese Dual was great, apart from the display couldnt be read at all outside.

    Heres a cheap Samsung Dual Sim

    Sounds good except "and last for a month." .... Anything that says per month is not prepay, no matter what they call it. Tis a good idea tho thanks

    Not everyone sends $12 worth of txt messages in a month - so for anyone who doesn't send many messages, there isn't really any simple way around the per-message charges.

    But its' still a basic fone. What you need is a smart fone like this
