This just shows how 'dumb' Vodafone's new Smart plans are. I left for XT last year and haven't looked back. Thoroughly enjoying my 1GB $80 plan and the $900 discount on an iPhone 4S 32GB which I gave to my partner.
Vodafone are just slipping further and further behind in value for money and data allowances.
