Mobile devices, Planets and the Human Condition

Telecom and Vodafone, An idea for you.

yep. I think thats the way to go, everywhere you look there are more and more options for 3g data and usage, but you have to go on a plan to get it.

and theres still the fear, and odd horror story around the traps about people who have accidentally gone over and recieved massive bills.

I know vodafone offer usage insurance to stop that happening, but I think the real deal breaker would be to be able to get prepaid Data.

You could sell some cool prepaid bundles, I'd love to be able to go down and spend $60 on a sim and get 1gb of data and $10 worth of calling.

Same deal with Telecom, I'd love to wander into a shop and put one of my windows mobile devices on Prepay.

From a business risk perspective it makes a lot of sense too, hell the person has paid upfront.

the only reason (not taking technical issues into account here) I can think of, is that its much more profitable to lock people into plans.

hell telecom Won't actually LET you put Prepay onto an Apache!!!

Vodafone should sell prepaid data packages - ie 1GB for $99 that has a 1yr expiry in much the same way as prepaid airtime. This would allow casual users to use mobile data..

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
