Nice new look, but I wouldn't like to load that site over GPRS now...
question tho, where do I find WAPmail now? (checks remote pop3 server)

Don't suppose an e-mail link can be added to the homepage down the bottom with those other links? (similar to the old site)

It actually loads ok over GPRS, faster than it used to load on the old design.

Was this change only superficial? Seems to load faster over HSDPA also

Very nice new design there, got to check it out properly when i get in the 3G zone tomorrow (sadly none where i live, unless i stand out side but to cold)
But yea very nice, came across some error pages, like the weather pages don't seem to want to load. :( and the wikipedia page wont search, typed something in search field then click go and pages refreshes and no results :(
Im sure these things will get fixed soon.

And it would be interesting to know how much of that i can browse with out it costing me anything. Like is the bebo page free to go on? is it the same as before where everything is free, apart from where it asks you to pay? if so then this is awesome, (especially when you get the wiki page working)
This is on my Sony Ericsson k800i by the way.

But all in all very nice, will have a proper look when on 3G.

Personally I think it looks crud.

I have never thought much of Vodafone Live, and this does not change my mind whatsoever.

I have also never understood why people pay the ridiculous prices Vodafone charge for images, videos, music, ringtones, backgrounds, games etc etc...when its all available either free, or far cheaper (legally) through the net via computer...and everybody has access to a computer these days.

convinience and because the average person doesn't know how to hook up their phones to their computer.
Or how to upload material found on V Live! to their phone.

I know why...

But convenience and technical knowhow only accounts for some people...others its stupidity and ignorance.

Anyway, irrelevant to the discussion at hand...

The new Vodafone Live design is not going to convince me to spend any extra money using that service, or any other associated with it...the whole point of the redesign I would think.

I don't care about Live! - I just want data at reasonable rates so I can use real internet services on my phone (such as Stuff) and not be forced into paying a few $ just to do this.

The days of the walled garden are over. When are Vodafone going to finally realise this?

Some credit has to be given to the Apple who with the iPhone actually forcing a change in the mindset of operators who have now realised when you give people reasonably priced data plans that data usage from mobile handsets increases significantly. It wasn't rocket science..

Ok, today I looked at my phone balance and sadly it has gone down about $1 so I guess Bebo wasn't free :(
But I don't remember seeing anywhere that it would cost me!

 Update:
The weather links work now, but the wikipedia page still doesn't (and don't bother to fix it if I have to pay for that one to (where not all made out of money you know!))
