Flexible Prepay plan gives Kiwis freedom to choose

Flexible Prepay plan gives Kiwis freedom to choose

With My Flex Prepay, Vodafone gives Kiwis flexibility to adjust the amount of data, minutes and TXT to suit their lifestyle

Imagine if you could create a mobile plan perfectly suited to your needs, with bundles of data, TXT and minutes that you could change to fit your lifestyle as often as you top up.

Launched today, Vodafone’s My Flex Prepay gives Kiwis the freedom to do just that.

Customers can dial up or down the amount of data, TXT and minutes on their Prepay plan, depending on how they like to keep in touch with their friends and family or what’s going on in their lives.

The move to a fully flexible Prepay plan puts customers into the driver’s seat to manage their mobile use and spending.

Vodafone Consumer Director Matt Williams says My Flex Prepay is based on exactly what customers have asked for – a plan they can design, personalise and control themselves.

“We don’t all fit into a neat and tidy box when it comes to how we use our phones. Some of us prefer to TXT rather than call, while others spend most of their phone time using apps like YouTube, Snapchat, Viber and Facebook Messenger.

“With My Flex Prepay, your phone plan can be tailor-made to match your needs. And most importantly, it can be adjusted with a simple swipe of a button if those needs change,” Matt said.

Using MyVodafone (the Vodafone mobile app), customers can easily change the individual amounts of TXT, minutes and data on their plan, or choose from pre-set favourite combos offering some of the best-ever value available on Prepay.

“Kiwis are telling us that when it comes to their phone plans, value and flexibility are most important to them. Not everyone wants to be locked in to a traditional mobile plan, and that called for a whole new look at how we structured our Prepay offering,” Matt said.

“We tested the water with Vodafone Mates, our first fully flexible Prepay plan which launched in August this year. Mates has been received really strongly and we are excited about building on this and offering a flexible plan with more data and minutes than ever before[i].

“My Flex Prepay gives all customers the freedom to pay for what they want, and less of what they don’t,” added Matt.

Vodafone My Flex Prepay includes a total of 216 combinations of data, minutes and TXT to suit all budgets ranging from $11 to $47 for up to 3.5GB, 500mins and unlimited TXT
