    Wha?

    I've been getting SMSs for a couple of days urging me to 'check your vodafone.net account for an important message'. Blimey, my vodafone.net whatsit? Never 'erd of it - but now I know I had it, and am now going to lose it, I am outraged.

    I feel a twee...er..fax coming on.

    /Paris - because she'd be more than distressed if someone took away her box.

      i had to laugh

      I got the same text asking me to check my vodafone.net email for some "important information", however my login and password wasn't accepted, neither could I get it sent to me . . .

      fail all round, where's my iphone 4 free of charge as compensation ;-)

    Web 2.0

    Don't Vodafone realise that most of their competitors are now on Web2.5, and working towards Web3.1 ??

    Replace Fax with Twatter?

    OK, I could live with that if pushed, however lots of companies are not going to. Let's just say that some companies I have worked for recently don't even have IM through Exchange available as it poses a security risk and potential for time wasting, let alone spending all day Twatting-about!

    Handsets?

    And what of those Vodafone customers who do not have the handful of handset models that are compatible with 360?

    Vodafone what are you up to

    VF are turning into the lumbering beast many other networks are distubringly becoming, discontinuing service, making up info when you clal to enquire and when you do most operators have not got a clue - or care...

    Sort it out VF - start being the company you claim to be....

    Any word on how

    this will affect their Blackberry BIS server at mobileemail.vodafone.net - pretty sure that BlackBerry's need the BIS for their e-mail functions to work....

    I got the same text message, logged into my vodafone.net account and saw ... the one and only message I'd had in there for a year and a half...
