This agreement starts when you are first allocated a Next mobile phone number to use with your NextMobile (Prepaid or Postpaid)Account or when you first credit your NextMobile (Prepaid or Postpaid)Account or when you first use the Services, whichever happens first.
4. Provision of Services
- NextMobile (Prepaid or Postpaid)Services allow you to make and receive most local, national and international calls (when within our Network coverage area) using a Mobile Device, and access a range of other Services. You will need a NextGTelecom SIM and a compatible Mobile Device to be able to connect to our Network and use the Services
- We will try our best to provide quality Services to you at all times and with reasonable care and skill. Because of the nature of mobile telecommunications, at times our ability to do so will be affected by factors outside of our control including, but not limited to, geographic conditions and physical obstructions, weather conditions, the number of people trying to use our Network at the same time or faults in our Network or other networks used by us to provide the Services to you and our Services’ reliance on systems and other services that we do not own or control. We therefore cannot promise or guarantee that our Service will be continuous or fault-free or available at a particular location.
- The quality, speed and coverage of the Services also depends partly on your Mobile Device, partly on our Network and partly on other telecommunications networks
- The Services may also be unavailable at times due to maintenance, repairs, upgrades or modifications to our Network or other networks used by us to provide the Services to you. Where it is within our control, we will try to keep such unavailability to a minimum
- You will be charged for each MMS message that is sent from your Mobile Device (e.g. the ‘send’ button is pressed and the mobile indicates the MMS is sent). MMS messages will be charged at NextGTelecom’s standard MMS rate per message to any mobile networks. Our MMS service is not available or suitable for use while roaming or for sending to international networks from your Next Mobile Device. The maximum file size of a MMS message is 600KB. If you attempt to send a MMS message over 600KB and/or if the message takes longer than 60 seconds to send, the message may be rejected (not delivered). Mobile Devices and/or our MMS system may automatically reduce the size and/or quality of a MMS message to fit within the maximum message size. It is your responsibility to check the size of a MMS message before you attempt to send it. MMS messages may be scaled by our MMS system to suit the receiving device’s specifications, such as screen size and screen resolution. We cannot guarantee that any SMS and MMS messages you attempt to send will be successfully delivered or received.
- Roaming relies on the use of overseas telecommunication networks which we do not control and therefore we cannot guarantee the quality of any Roaming services. Some services, such as video calling and data, may not be available while Roaming. The use by you of overseas telecommunication networks will be subject to our available roaming destinations and the terms and conditions of the relevant network operator. Those terms and conditions will apply in addition to the terms and conditions contained in this agreement.

- comply with all your obligations in this agreement;
- provide us with all information we reasonably request in connection with this agreement and make sure that all information you give to us or to any third party retailer is accurate and complete;
