nahh, no 3g from them here. Had to knock the phone back to dual mode since it didnt seem to want to go onto vodafone 3g with roaming... Good 2g signal here - not as good as voda but since I can see one of their sites across the harbor thats to be expected - no XThandset to compare it with but it seems much better then telecom CDMA. Will be interesting to see how it goes at tech tomorrow since voda is very good there with both 2g and 3g at my end of campus - 3g is hopeless at the other end and 2g is pretty crap inbuilding but they are old brick buildings so guess its to be expected to suck.

You said you got several SIM's, so have you tried calling one of the other 022 numbers to see if price is still same?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Amazing how people are quick to speak about prices when even the 2degrees themselves said the prices will only be revealed on the 5th of August.

At ease, gentlemen.

Is EDGE working richms? How's the network speed on 2G? Are there any SIM toolkit ("SIM2") things?

Ok, well I put the sim back in this morning and tried to make a call and its now blocked, I had a couple of texts come thru - one from zonic and one from 2degrees saying its in the test environment so now suspended and will be reactivated at launch. couldnt check balance, couldnt reply to zonic's text, incoming call worked when I tried it.

Never got around to testing data on it, I dont know if the little antenna symbol changes to something else at standby or not, but it just shows the normal gsm symbol on it.

That's the point of a mobile operator, isn't it? To get everyone talking... Wink

But I still think people are jumping the gun a bit. Just remember, if you will, the "Vodafone + iPhone 3G price announcement" expectations and let-downs.

Just play it safe, and wait until they announce the plans before we start bashing (or praising).

Does seem a bit strange you'd receive Giraffes and lions with free coffees, clearly this make no sense and cannot be the final product nor the final pricing.

Unless Zimbabwe is trying to raise some money....and we all know where Econet came from. :)........I wonder if my dog would mind sharing his kennel with a lion.

DarkShadow: What? Calls are 89c for 30 seconds on 2degrees?


It looks like he said that he called from a XT mobile number.
