Almost at the end of my current contract and phoned Vodafone about upgrades etc. I use an iPhone at the mo but am not on an iPhone contract. My tariff is 300 minutes, unlimited text and unlimited internet for £30/month.
Seems any new contract I enter into, my tariff will change from being charged per second to per minute on calls. So in future if I make a 2 minute 14 second call, I'll use 3 minutes of my inclusive allowance. Currently I'd use 2 minutes 14 seconds of my allowance.
Have all networks changed to this charging rate? Has anyone fought and won to keep a per second charge?
I then asked about 'tethering' and was told this would come out of my internet allowance (500mb/month included in any new tariff) but they advised that I take out a tethering pack as tethering uses more data than just browsing on the iPhone.
A new contract with less internet than my current allowance would subsequently cost me £36/month on a 24 month deal.
Anyone got better deals? I'd prefer to stay with Vodafone as they seem to have the best coverage about here and further north (central Scotland and above) but for the right deal I would consider changing provider.
