Do you use t-mobile?
Nah 3 but the phone is piss easy to unlock, takes under a minute, and is free. Use it on any network and all the APN's auto-detect and work.
I was going to get this for my mother-in-law for her osf. It seems a good deal if you don't make many calls.
I know the score. Fwiw, I told you about Argos selling the SF in the first thread.
More generally, guess what, just checked and no stock at Argos in SE London - 5th week running.
Cheers for the unlocking tip! Prob buy from the Orange shop tomorrow.
^ Not wrong
And the stuff about "this thread is about linkage to Ed's Wirefresh site, not helpful info" and the non existent "contract" I was supposedly pointing people at?
WTF was all that about?
I assumed this was the thread you started - same subject, a few threads down this page.
Is "Sorry, I was completely wrong and unnecessarily rude" the words you're actually looking for here?
And what is this other thread you're on about anyway?
does it cost you to use GPS when you're out and about? Does using GPS use data/make a call or what or is it just another signal (like bluetooth for example).
I'm after a new phone and am already a GiffGaffer - this might be worth a look - I was considering one a while back but ended up giving my son all the money I had for a phone for some school trip.
I think LC is on about the thread you started about Sf's being cheap in Argos, ed
all the diffrent plans use diffrent measures so it's fucking hard to determine who has the best rates..
Think about it from the pov of your own usage, or what you plan to use. Found that was better than trying to compare uncomparable tariffs.
i've never had a smart phone before so this is unexplored teritory
The Internet thing bears some reflection. Streaming consumes a lot of yer monthly allocation but stuff like this and Facebook doesn't. Someone else will maybe offer a guide to 'normal' browsing and usage. But if you're not likely to be out and about much, you won't need a lot of bandwidth. Hence thinking about your own habits.
i think that 90% of the time i'll be in wifi range
probably just going to be a bit of facebooking or something at clubs
You're like the biggest nerd I've met and I can't believe you don't own a smartphone....make sure you get a fat data usage allowance, you'll have portable manga porn on the move now
same here bro.. im just on the Dolphin tarrif (£10 PAYG till I work this thing out)... 3 has been recommended to me as well, as they piggyback the o2 service...
Do you find the amount of apps offered on the menu somewhat over the top.. Guitar Hero????
i have a computer by my bed i walk to work where i sit at a computer all day then i walk back home to sit by the computer again. plus i carry around a laptop
the only time i might use mobilephone internet is when i'm going out
and as the biggest nerd i don't go out much
plus i can have have manga porn on my mp3 player
GPS doesn't cost anything. Downloading the map usually (I don't know about this particular phone) does use your data allowance, however.
No they don't. They have their own network.
A basic £10 a month deal sounds enough then.
Giffgaff buy their bandwidth from 02.
today the day it's meant to turn up at four in the afternoon i get an email saying it's not going to come
mind you it means i get to buy it from carphone warehouse
if that order works... my name gives an error on the fucking form... my name is hyphenated yet the form won't let you put in hyphens
Carphone Warehouse don't have the SF afaik. Try an Orange shop, they def have stock though you have to buy a £20 top up.
Checked the Argos site again and they reckon they have stock everywhere now, except you can't pick one up until Sat
just ordered one
if the order doesn't go through because of the form problem i'll check out buying from orange in store or maybe argos
ok so now carphone whorehouse has said it's sending me my phone but the dhl tracking number sends me to this info
Delivered 15/03/10 09:48 HANLEY GOOLE HOME DELIVERY
that is not my order
posting from my phone
so far no worries about charges as i can get a fucking signal
how do i find out what my phone number is? my phone says it doesn't know...
ring your other phone from it.. or it should be on the sim or the plastic you popped it out of.. all the rest of the details you need are on the box..
I registered it via the cracktop to the dolphin tarriff, just so i could use the £10 it came with so I can work out how that goes..
eta: The credit was put on me phone within a few hours although they say it can take up to 48hrs...
no credit... i'll have a look on the box
have you tried going to settings>about phone>phone identity...
ok so i found it by putting my sime number into the top up thing but now it's asking for a 4 digit identification code... which they never sent me
