mmmm very creative.

but in reality though, are they both that good? only thing that i look forward with V3G is HSDPA... and of course the mobile device has to be reasonably affordable... at the moment, i'm still on my imate smartphone2 on gsm/gprs.

Do your home work lokinz you are starting to lack credibility

Voda video calling is 64k circuit (not packet) the only thing 3G about it is the airlink.

What technical advantages does Vodafones current 3G offering have over Telecoms?

I'm sorry, I guess I got confussed with the whole can only be done on a 3G handset and In 3G coverage issue.

Perhaps you could enlighten me as to what generation of mobile service it is 1st, 2nd, 2.5 or 3rd?

People don't use GSM/UMTS for the technical advantages, they use it for the practical advantages such as handset availability, roaming, etc.

Well said Alasta. GSM/UMTS is good for roaming and handsets, CDMA is better for speed and coverage (in this country and some others).

Depending on what factors are important for your specific needs, one will be better.

For example, I don't care about video calling, so that is not enough to make me go all over it. I have a PC and rather use the broadband connection on the hotel or a Wi-Fi hotspot than pay the high cost of a video call. But I like the roaming capability when overseas.
