Vodafone are cool too - not !!!

I get a call today from Vodafone.
SHE: Hi Ger, I am calling from Vodafone - you were a customer of ours.
ME: Yes, but that was many months ago.
SHE: I am calling to tell you about new offers that would make you return
ME: OK, I am interested
SHE: Which network are you with now?
ME: 48
SHE: No, I mean which network operator?
ME: 48
SHE: Are you with O2, 3, Meteor?
ME: No, 48.
SHE: I don't know that mobile network. Is that a name?
ME: Yes, 48 is the name - it's been around a while now.
SHE: Is it billpay?
ME: No, pay as you go.
SHE: I never heard of it - how much do you pay?
ME: €10 per month
SHE: How many minutes?
ME: Effectively unlimited - to any network.
SHE: Landlines?
ME: 20 minutes.
SHE: I didn't know about that.
ME: You should! It's a great deal. Isn't it?
SHE: Yes!!! I must learn about that.

My question is; if the €10 is a membership fee - does that mean you don't have €10 credit? I'm worried I'd need to ring an 1850 number or something. How would I pay for that??

Just ordered my sim a few days ago. Can't wait to run away from Meteor.

It's a membership fee - but included in this membership is the 3000 any network minutes and 5000 texts. But, unlike most topups, you don't get the "included minutes" and ALSO have €10 credit available to do other stuff with.

So pay the €10 membership and have the included calls and texts, no extra topup required.

I'm probably being stupid here but does this mean that your 10 euro membership fee pays for your allotted minutes and texts and that it also gives you 10 euro credit to spend on other services?

No! I maybe phrased it badly. You are paying for membership which includes minutes and texts. When you've paid for membership your balance is then zero but you can make calls and texts. To do anything else requires purchase of more credit.

what happens if you are roaming ? Can you receive texts/calls while abroad (say in the EU) for free ? And if the 10 euro is used up in membership fees I presume you have to add more cash to make calls and send sms abroad ?
