Will be upgrading mine to it's 3G uncle this week. Will try and replicate Blind's deal.

Does anyone know much about the o2 fair usage download policy on the iphone? I asked if there was a download limit and they said no. I asked if there was a fair usage policy and they said 'yes, but it's huge and it won't cause you a problem'

I only ask as I've just downloaded the LBC radio application, and there's a disclaimer that it downloads shed loads of data as you listen.

MatOV.fm on the jesus phone, I could cry.

There is no data limit.

I have streamed last.fm for entire days on 3G, to the point where the phone was so hot I thought the black plastic would melt.

There have also been reports of iphone 2.1 being detected in use in the south SF Bay area, there is plenty of speculation that this is 'evidence' of the new model being tested in the wild

All of this is currently just blog talk so take it with a pinch of salt.

Probably going to hold out and see if a new one comes out. My current phone (Nokia N95) is fine but I want to be able to go on the net whilst out and about etc etc. Was speaking with a mate today who thinks a new one will appear sometime this year. Best sit tight.

It is designed to stop people using their iJesus as a modem for their laptop. As long as you are just using the iJesus itself you will be fine.

A year with a Nokia, good luck with that

A day with a Nokia would drive me to distraction. That one I had at Securicor in 2001 is the only one I've ever had.

Dave 04-02-2009 07:51 AM

SE are no better

RDSdaEAGLE 04-02-2009 07:52 AM

I won't be getting an iPhone just yet after all. I can't feasibly spend $300 on a phone and then spend another $90 every month.

I am coming in to a little money soon, so maybe then - but we'll see.

Dave 04-02-2009 07:54 AM

What bad luck

You get 400 minutes of call time, and they charge you for calls received as well as made.

You get 400 text messages, and they include the ones you receive as well as the ones you send.

And then they charge you a fortune for the pleasure.

:sob: Gutted.

Kevin T 04-02-2009 01:22 PM

Sounds like the septics get a really bad deal. Here the phone is free on an upgrade (50 to upgrade to 16GB) then I think you get 1200 minutes and 500 texts for 45 per month (inc of VAT)

GodstoneEagle 05-02-2009 06:22 PM

Upgraded from 2G to 3G. Had to pay 155 for the handset (16GB), staying on my 35pm deal.

Hoping to recoup the money by selling this one.

I've only ever had one phone that wasn't a Nokia. Have been using them since mid-2002 and have never had a problem with then.

Kevin T 05-02-2009 10:55 PM

I made a point of never having one. There was a stage where everyone had them. I've always found them to be really poorly made and went down the SE route instead.

155 is harsh - what happened to the 99 upgrade (59 for 8gb)?
