You should be lucky. I changed from Telstra to Vodafone on Monday. Its probably the stupidiest thing Ive ever done.

Ive spent more times on calling back ppl cause of bad coverage or drop outs...


I cant beleive that Vodafone calls this service

For one reason that I use telstra is the for outside the country. Now, I'm not sure. But with voda, they say that, they have more towers then other "company", I don't think so.

Vodafone are providing me an Vodafone expander device. iTs a Femtocell - acts like a cell tower for your home but uses your internet connection to convert it to voip your calls to the Vodafone network. Yeah sounds dodgy but supposedly works... Too bad ive been on the phone for 2 hours with my device not connecting...

A femtocell (vodafone expander,) is a small, low-power cellular base station, typically designed for use in a home or small business. It connects to the service provider’s network via broadband (such as DSL or cable); current designs typically support two to four active mobile phones in a residential setting,

Vodafone still not impressed with any of your services....


I agree with Telstra in a way. All new handsets should/will be 4G compatible. Except iPhones/iPads (lol im so anti apple). Im waiting for Nokia to come out with their new Windows Phone 8 handsets. Very impressed with my Windows Phone 7/7.5. The most simple phone Ive ever used.

when you've been with 3 anything is heaps better including vodafone.

i find that the coverage is heaps better than what 3 had especially since they haven't finished with installation upgrades.

before i would always be on roaming and 3 wouldn't include that as part of my cap so my phone bill would come to $180 every month which was a complete and utter waste of having a cap.

but in all honesty it does depend on where you are...

if you're out in the bushes, stick to telstra.

$180 cap? That's a rip off. I was on Telstra a while ago, I had $40 plan with, txt, roaming, MMS, and $100 free calls with it.

Voda is bad with reception i agree, telstra is great with reception but very pricey imo on pre-paid sheez. Someone i know is on telstra pre-paid & tells me those things eat credit like crazy ! Ive been with optus before under the B plan i think it was called & they seem to be ok

Im with telstra currently & am very happy with them. Cant get a better reception like with telstra !! But sheez isnt this taking things to a bit of extreme dictating to cleints what network they can use even when some have spent a small fortune of some phones & only to be told soon they wont be able to use them ?

Am i reading things right ? is telstra making 3g & other obsolete ?

Old handsets that run on 2100 MHZ band won't work.
Most people that have these probably don't browse Internet anyway ( this I the problem it will be slower )

The old handsets will still run for making call just fine
