The multiple exclamation marks -so- make me want to run out and try it - they really do, and i glad about the upper case stuff, it would not have been believable without it.

It is good news though.

Now we just need "Team Builder Talkzone Zero" where you can talk to anyone on any network for free :-)

Hell would freeze over before that would happen. Thats just as likely as cellphones giving off free local/national for everyone.... well probably more likely...

ditto kickass
i've tried a couple of times when people say it has worked, i think i will wait to hear something officialish or give it a few days after the supposed 25th launch date

one interesting gripe i have been reminded of is that lightsurf based messaging locks forwarding so if i send a pxt to say a sanyo 8100 they can view it and save it but not pass it on

PXT is a trademark registered to Vodafone so at present you cannot yet send a PXT to an 8100! :-)

interesting though - if PXT is a registered trademark, but Voda willingly forward on PXTs to Telecom, then once it enters the Telecom network, is it still a PXT?

If so, could Telecom reasonably tell their users that "You can now recieve PXT messages?"

If a Telecom user forwards one of these PXTs, are they then PXTing??

If you want to get into the semantics, then you could say that a PXT becomes a photo message after it passes through the gateway which translates the GSM MMS into a message that an 027 phone can interpret.

But, in any case, it's really the functionality that we all care about!

Of course it is - but someone has to idly wonder about these things, so it might as well be me!
