Not sure if this was allowed, however I do believe people need to know about this because not everyone would have experienced the issues (i.e. half of Sydney). Thus even if this gets moved to the forums hopefully it reaches enough people so that they know to DESTROY THE VODAFONE NETWORK!
Absolutely unlimited mobile data usage FREE OF CHARGE, EHRMAGHERD!
Seriously, if you are on Vodafone. Take advantage and just download whatever you want, watch Youtube, just absolutely demolish it especially if you guys use smartphones. Just use Personal Hotspot / Tethering (Same Thing), and just KILL DAT DATA!
Enjoy you OzBargainers!
From a Store Rep of Vodafone jimbobaus:
It will work for all numbers which were active on the Vodafone network between the hours of 1pm and 5pm Thursday June 19th 2014 (AEST)
Thus buying a $2 SIM will NOT work for this offer. Sorry, unlucky.
Mixed messages, and different sources of information concede different viewpoints. We'll have to wait and see if purchasing a SIM tomorrow will enable users to take advantage of this offer.
From some mad kid:
EVERYONE I JUST RECEIVED A CALL BACK FROM VODAFONE POCKET WIFI ARE INCLUDED IN THE UNLIMITED WEEKEND!!!!!
Pocket Wifi has seem to be approved for use 3G + 4G.
REMEMBER THOUGH: IT STARTS AT 12AM FRIDAY and ENDS 3AM MONDAY AEST!
(Starting Friday Night/Saturday Morning)
Note: NEVER seen Optus or Telstra do ANYTHING like this before.
Note: I like this offer. Period.
