    Keep in mind their terms are weekly.

    I hate them on the basis that they used the voice actor who plays mr herbert (the pedophile) on family guy for the ads at my work, he sat there whistling when he talked and noone could understand him. It just gave everyone a headache.

    Other than that they sound alright.

    I'm not moving - don't like that their plans are weekly.

    The $4 weekly thing is a pain tbh, worked out to be more expensive than my current telecom lot just because of the waste I would end up with due to not using the volumes they are offering per week, sure it might be cheaper per unit (mb/txt/min) but over all its more costly and more wastage

    You don't have to use their weekly plan. You can use normal prepay casual calling @37c/ min or 9c per SMS. The only down side of Skinny at present they have no MMS..

    I usually send around 200 txts per month. On 2degrees I can pay $10 per month to get them. On Skinny, I'd have to pay $16, so it doesn't make sense for me to move.

    I was given one and gave it to one of the kids on the van run. No use to me as sometimes I don't use my phone for a couple of weeks. (school holidays)
