A few weeks ago I blogged and talked on air about how Vodafone had decided to lock the phones it sells in New Zealand from now on, so they would only work with the Vodafone network, unless you paid Voda another $50.
Today, I’m delighted to be able to say that Vodafone has changed its mind.
Apparently it’s because of customer response. There was a storm of protest from customers who couldn’t see how this was good for them at all, and the Commerce Commission agreed with them.
Well done everyone who complained, and well done to the people at Vodafone for listening.
