SteveON: How I see it working is 2d want to see what Telecom and VF have in their hands. When they make a move 2d will follow. They dont want to come in with a more expensive product then have to change the price next week just to compete... Well that is my view because it does not make any logical sense to take 3G down...


iPhone4 plans you mean?

I really really wish the market would stop differentiating between iPhone, Blackberry, mobile broadband, and mobile data plans.? Data is data, anyway you cut it.? The only difference is handset subsidies, which are normally laid bare anyway because they advertise an outright buy price.


Blackberry will never change as the way Blackberry works to other devices

manhinli: I'm kinda disappointed it'll be locked down - but like everyone else - am wondering why?




Typical release strategy - develop, prototype, user acceptance testing (silent in this case), then change control to move the new systems into production.

One big question that there doesn't seem to be a straight answer to - will the roaming agreement on voda use the voda 3g network?

i.e. are only the 2g sites becoming 3g meaning the other 52% of NZ has GPRS still?  Or will the rest roam on voda 3g??

or because of the way RIM will control what Vodafone charge in some way i bet, didn't Vodafone say they had the same issue with Apple controlling what they could and couldn't do with the iPhone plans?

in some ways be an unofficial carrier has its advantages

It does if they need to make some service disrupting changes.  It's much better that they tell everyone it is being turned off/locked up otherwise people will start complaining about the poor network.

Yes, you will have 3G wherever you are, either on one network or another.

I use Windows but my machines are lean. I don't install crapware, toolbars, etc. Windows itself, if kept up-to-date is quite "silent".
