iPhone 3G S in the UK: what you need to know


Fan Boi

Okay, I'm something of an iPhone Fan boy - although I can still acknowledge some its missing features (now only LED flash)

I still love the iPhone, look forward to OS3.0 but think O2 have royally f***ed up. The new pricing is bad enough (although why current 3G users expect to be able to cancel/break their current contract without penalty is beyond me).

The real killer is the insane tethering costs. £15 a month? I thought I already had an 'unlimited data' plan with the iPhone. I can understand O2 not wanting users to hammer their (crap) 3G network for 10's of gigabytes per month, but why not a soft cap of 1-2gb per month. I imagine for most users, the occasional ability to use tethering would be useful - but most don;t use it enough for £15 per month.

Thumb Up

Still funny after 104 comments?

O2 prices up the latest iPhone


2 year deal?

I thought it was a 2 year exclusivity agreement?

Although IIRC, AT&T in the US is a five year agreement

BBC races away with five-year F1 rights deal


Not so sure

ITV moved F1 coverage forwards IMO. Sure, they f***ed up with the adverts for a while.

But I'd rather have Adverts and Brundle than no Brundle - so please come with F1 to the Beeb please, Martin.

The others I can take or leave....but I've developed a massive fear of John Invadale presenting.....I think I'd rather have big nose Rosential than him.

As for Murry - God bless him. I think he should make the odd studio appearance but I think his commentating days are behind him.

Re: Ian Davies

ha ha, well said Ian Davies....and nice to see someone tell it how it is :D

MS lawyers take out AutoPatcher



Autopatcher going for 4/5 years without hiccup - amd M$ aware of them.

It stinks that they now close them down (or the download page at all). Us techies rely on autopatcher quite heavily in some cases. It's so much easier - particularly for house calls (not that I do many)

Once again M$ makes it harder for their own users and people who try to support (fix) their software
