zYxMa, just link me to an ebay bid that shows i'm having a laugh
my point was that to sell your phone for 'much more' than that offered by the various recycling schemes, your phone needs to be in mint condition.
I have never used these recyclers before, but I'd wager it is less hassle than trying to flog your phone on ebay. All THEY care about is that it is a working phone that isn't smashed to pieces. You send the phone with some sort of recorded delivery and they send you a cheque i'm guessing.
Overall, provided you aren't half-way through your contract you should be able to 'get a free upgrade' by recycling your current iphone after paying for the iphone 4 upgrade.
I guess the best thing to do is wait until Orange, t-mobile, vodafone,  and virgin have released their pricing packages and take your pick.

I could be tempted to sell my 16GB 3G to that phonerecyclebank.com site. £205 is a damn good price for a 2 year well used phone. It would mean my 32GB iPhone4 would cost next to nothing!
I'd wager that the iphone4 prices will be very close to current 3GS prices. Once the iPhone 4 arrives, 3GS prices will drop to 3G prices and 3G will be no more...
O2 have just released their smartphone tarrifs. The data allowance is really low!

I seen that O2's monthly plans are up, I just wish they would hurry up and announce the handset pricing for pay as you go

ok, so in my general / settings / usage I have sent 42mb and received 540mb...
is that in total or since my last charge? i updated to 3.1.3 recently so i'm worried that it is based on the past 2 weeks and that these data plans are ridiculous. I only use it for a bit of home pc streaming, youtube etc

500MB cap is rediculous. I'm probably going to get the £30 24month contract and get the extra 500MB £5 bolt on. Either that, or argue to stay on my current tarrif which is 500txts/600mins/unlimited data.

http://news.o2.co.uk/Press-Releases/...model-2a3.aspx ) and that "97% of users" only use half of this allowance... but it kills the point of an iphone and o2 especially when you can't even get on bloody 3g in the centre of the capital

i wonder how many will jump ship or if this is all just momentary shock and awe...
60 youtube clips in a month sounds like loads, but in combination with all the crap that gets pushed to your phone, emails and general surfing it starts to look worrisome.
guess this means we won't be able to 3gUnrestrict our facetime calls

That's the conclusion i came to re: Orange tariff... they don't seem to list usage charges outside of your contract. So if you were to go over as you say, I don't know what the penalty would be.
Looking at my usage overall, I need a tariff that no one seems to offer. I use data above and beyond my minutes/text allowed. I've never once come close to my 600mins/month or 600 txts/month. Maybe in light of this I would be best on the cheapest of cheap tariffs with a 500m bolt on each month.
I feel like I want to leave o2 purely out of spite

I have unlimited data plan on o2 simplicity sim only, although they text me one month to say I was over my data quota and if I didn't reduce my usage they would cut off my data! When I spoke to customer support, the "Unlimited Plan" actual produces a warning text if you go over 250mb in a month, and if you exceed 500mb you get a written warning - if you then exceed 500mb in another month they will force you to upgrade to a 1gb plan for £15 per month extra.
So the Unlimited Data Plan has never been unlimited on o2.
06-10-2010, 09:47 AM #35
Is there a chance that your sim only tariff is markedly different from my payM unlimited tariff?
Might pop out to my o2 shop to ask what's going on

I'm on £20 iphone simplicit. with 600 min, 1200 texts, unlimited Internet & wifi. I do use Internet a lot, so was annoyed when I saw the 500mb limit. The new tariff is unlimited texts, I don't want bloody unlimited texts, I don't use what I've got. :-(

Wtf, that data allowance is really low and the iPhone 4 is even more expensive than last year?
Hurry up and release the Payngo prices so I can preorder! However if iPhone 4 16GB is more than £550, I shall not be buying it, I think...

What does all this actually mean?

O2 Blog: Offering fair and transparent access to mobile data <--- i recommend reading his answers as they are the comments closest to the horse's mouth as we are likely to see
The CEO of o2 says this: "if you go over your data limit and don't buy a Bolt On then your data speed will gradually slow down. You won't be charged further."
