They should have gotten it right the first time, They delayed the launch by years, you would have thought they would of done vigerous testing by now

Not as bad as Apple who launched the iPod knowing it had a serious design fault and they would have to repair every single one. Oh wait, the iPod is very popular despite launching a faulty product.

I'm sure it was rigorously tested before the launch, after which the customers' vigorous testing managed to break the website in ways which no one could have foreseen.

I'm under the impression that they've done no work on the website over the weekend. So my guess is it'll be back tomorrow.

Hope they be back up today Or tomorrow. But it will help if we can call up to port our number over.

I hope for today as well. But would prefer it to be solid and wait another day (or 2/3) rather than they bring it up early and have to take it down again. I don't mind waiting a few days as it won't change me moving from vodafone.

The CSR I spoke to on Sunday said they were hoping to get it back up tomorrow (Tuesday)




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Would be ok if they would do a port over the phone, but sadly no, they will not so I have a telecom 021 here that has no credit on it, that I want to use the number to call people and a 2 degrees with credit on it and a number I dont want to use... Grr.
