Saturday, February 11, 2006  
9:21pm saturday night i received a call from 3HK CS (i was gonna ask, what are you doing at your office?)

3: hello is this mr chan?
me: yes that's me
3: actually we have this Hellor Ring service and see if Mr chan is interested
me: no I'm not interested
3: but honestly do you know what it is?
me: yes, it's a virtually useless service targeted 20 yearolds with low dispossable income to have the call party listening to an annoying song of their choice
3: do they find the song annoying because they don't like the song, or when u pick a song that you like...
me: the service is annoying to the call party, it is of courtesy to hang up in 5 rings if nobody picks up, so Hello ring is annoying let alone your song selection is really limited
3: i see
me: let alone i don' want to spend any extra money on such a stupid service when ur basic service is already so expensive
3: really, have you checked out our new service plans 35$ 500min 50$ 1000min?
me: so that will require me to sign a 3G contract?
3: no, you just have to go to any 3-outlets and the whole new pricing scheme is already out tehre
me: so what you are offering me is something that every new customer will get anyway, hey i have been with your company for all these years..
3: i am sure we have more special offers...
me: special offers? you guys are raising inter-network SMS charges by 50% on mar30, from 0.4$ to 0.6$, that i can assure you that any of the 5 competiting operators out there have schemes that beat that
3: actually this price change is global, it's due to the raised government fee
me: yes and the fee varies with operators, 3 holds three bands: cdma, wcdma and gsm, so the raise for you guys will be highest. what i am trying to say is that in hte end the SMS rate is determined by individual operators independently. so you are assuring me that there is an illegal cartel in the market?
3: no sir... eh all i can say is that all the other operators should have similar SMS rate adjustmnts around that time
me: yes but they have SMS packages that your company does not.. miss, i am a heavy SMS user you see, i don't care about hello ring, i just want my SMS cheap, and the rest of the call waiting/voicemail for free
3: we do have SMS packages
me: yes, for SMS gambling (mark6 and horse racing). i'm sorry i don't fit into that category. other operators have non-gambling SMS packages
3: actually we are going to have SMS packages
me: and that will require me to sign a contract?
3: this is insider news, so I cannot say much now
me: so will this upcoming sms package be mutually exclusive to the 50$ 1000min scheme you mentioned earlier?
3: at this stage i don't think so
me: ok, so thank you for your info, please let me know when your SMS packages are out, i will be delighted to know. good night
