I hope these option would be available in the Philippines. A lot of people here don't have access to credit cards and if these option would be available more Filipinos would be playing WOT. Because in my country banks are strict on who gets approval to have credit cards. These would really be a viable option here and I hope you would consider the soonest possible time. Historically Filipinos spend more on Mobile phone services than in any other comodities.

While I applaud the innovation, I detest the value.
You're pretty much paying a cent for every single gold.
Value Meal is not here folks.

However, having a Key Card (a Credit Card without the Debit account - ergo I can't draw debt without doing stupid things) is a better option, so I'll stick to that.

Finally, big props on finding new advertising spots.

I am looking forward that the SMS Payment Option will be available also in my country the Philippines. There are a lot of Telecommunications Company operating in my country so I do hope that one of these days it will hit the market within my area...

Each payment provider will come with vastly different costs and charges. So that can alter the gold exchange rate a lot.

Using an AUS phone overseas is very expensive yeah, especially when they are connecting to the net now days.

I have heard a rather similar case to this. I guess he forgot to off his oversea roaming option :x
An advice to all, do remember to close your roaming when you are abroad if you are not expecting calls.
Me, I'll just switch off my phone :D

Anyway, back to topic.
Gratz to Aussies for the new payment method.
@RexAttackYou, afuentecilla and ZtrikerZeero, I'll drop the message to Kaz :)

Nice feature. Might actually use it if the rates weren't so ridiculous.

Was wondering how this works, being sms, i currently have a mobile and am on a monthly plan. So if i was to buy some gold, how would it be charged to my mobile provider, would it be taken from my sms allowance or as a seperate charge on my account?

wow do the sms plans get screwed ... the NZ plan is wow ... i mean wow
In MMO terms, the E-75 is a vanilla warrior with shield, the ST-1 uses two handed weapons and full armor, the M103 is that asshole who uses the warrior class for the defensive bonuses and then uses crossbows, the IS-8 is the rogue that suddenly thought "warrior sounds cool, I might try that", and the VK4502B is the starting character with a tower shield. The AMX50-120 is actually a mage and simply wandered into the wrong raid group.

Blade has a mod pack! Take a look here
