Don’t ask / Don’t Tell = don’t blame me if you choose to do what I advised you and it doesn’t work in the future / you get charged massive over-usage charges. Sorry, but I’ve got a healthy skepticism for sales guys who won’t commit to what they’re selling you, especially when they ‘forget’ to tell you about VOIP and the associated issues with porting of number later.

There shouldn’t be any further charge when the 4G kicks in as it’s all part of the plan.

You’re definitely right though, the sales guy is just covering his arse in case anything goes wrong.

I know. I am human. I am weak. They tell me what I want to hear.

Definitely do not go with DOT it is too hard to move away from if you don’t like it.

To be fair, DOT isn’t THAT bad, if you’ve got enough bandwidth and are going in with your eyes open to the conditions that you’re getting into. Personally, I advocate the flexibility of being able to change providers on YOUR schedule, not theirs. The sales guy might not even know what it is he’s getting you into – he’s just looking at the bottom line.

I elected to go with Telstra in the end due to the 4G back-up because I cannot afford any downtime but the bad reviews you’re both giving regarding DOT has me regretting it.

Hi Panamax,

There shouldn’t be any downtime when porting numbers. The winning carrier should have their systems ready before the port happens.
Between telstra and optus i would take telstra.

Thanks. That confirmation by you and others helped scratch that off the decision table.
