patch 14-01-2009 01:45 PM

Just received an iphone on 02 30.00 a month tariff, what I can't work out is if receiving and sending emails included in the tariff, anyone know?

Thanks

It is included - counts as data.

I'm going to have to cave and get a case of some sort, already got nasty scratches in the plastic after less than a month. Preferably something grippier than the gloss plastic as I keep dropping it on concrete.

Interestingly the battery life appears infinately better than my old handset (on it since it arrived and still a full green bar) my sticky text delete key problem also appears to have gone away.

Happy me. :)

They must have improved the battery is all I can say. I continued using the phone to browse most of last night, then intentially didn't charge it, have made and received a dozen calls today plus a couple of hours of browsing and has finally warned me that only 20% of the battery remains.

My old phone wouldn't have made it through last night. :)

i just got an iphone 8gb 24 a month with 600 mins and 600 texts free a month and free internet and wifi

Has anyone taken the phone abroad? Is roaming enacted automatically? What about internet access? Any idea of the charges?

Answers by the end of today, please. ;)

That's very good - did you have to pay anything for the Phone?

It's not included and very expensive. Switch of roaming in the Settings menu (it should be switched off by default).

i paid 98 for the phone i really like it are there any tips i need though ?

Nightmare!

Only had the phone for a month and it's decided it doesn't want to send text messages anymore.

Done a full restore and everything that o2/Apple have told me to. Still won't work.

Seems to be quite a widespread problem having done a google search. There is a fairly long thread on the o2 forums about it...

http://forum.o2.co.uk/viewtopic.php?...er=asc&start=0

The woman I phoned at o2 said I should send the phone off for repair but that could take ages for the phone to come back to me. I'm going to take it into the Apple shop on Regents Street tomorrow and hope they give me a new one... really don't fancy waiting for the best part of a month for them to repair it or decide to send me a new one.

Are you sure it's away for a month, fairly sure I read they were replaced in ten days

The useless woman at o2 said up to three weeks.

To be honest even 10 days is too long. I really hope the apple store give me a new one tomorrow.

Dave 14-01-2009 08:26 PM

If you bought from 02 why would Apple exchange it?

richdeniro 14-01-2009 08:28 PM

Some people on that o2 forum claim they had theirs replaced at Apple shops.

Dave 14-01-2009 08:31 PM

Let us know how you get on

richdeniro 14-01-2009 08:33 PM

Will do!

Not sure if it's the case in the UK, but over here Apple are generally pretty good with replacing their own products, even if you bought them from somewhere else.

Conger 15-01-2009 07:40 AM

Does anyone know if, having gone and bought an 8gb iPhone, you can 6 months later go and exchange it for a 16gb one instead (at a cost, of course!)?

Blind_Eagle 15-01-2009 07:46 AM

I haven't heard of anyone being allowed to do that.

I did. They let me upgrade from the 2G 8Gb to the 3G 16Gb for 150 quid and a new contract.

Only applies if you have a contract, obviously.
