Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Consumer power

Published: Tuesday 2004-12-14.

I noticed that my mobile phone operator let people switch to them without having to pay a connection fee now around Christmas. Since I have been thinking about switching from the subscription I currently have with them to their “self service subscription” Easy, where you administrate everything via the Internet (which I do anyway with my current one) I wrote to them asking whether switching also was for free.

I got a reply stating that it wasn’t, the offer was only valid for new subscriptions. So I wrote asking if I then couldn’t just get a new subscription, with the free connection, and then port over my existing number to the new subscription and thus move over to the new subscription without a fee.

After a couple of hour, I received an answer: We have now also introduced a drive covering free switching to Easy until the end of the year.

1-0 for me...
