Well, I'm bummed.  They've priced it too high for my budget ($50 per month).  Cry

Once again vodafone shaft their customers.......

I will be interested to see the worldwide table showing total cost over the contract once the other countries have been finalised, this pricing wil push vodafone very close to the most expensice place in the world to buy one.

The data supplied for the price is a joke as well.

Goodbye vodafone.
