*137 if I remember rightly.
Yes, yes, possibly wishful thinking,
but as many have stated, the launch of the iPhone was, all things considered, hardly the PR dream that Vodafone may have anticipated regardless of their "exciting" iPhone plans.
The new (much more palatable) casual rate for prepay data coming 28th July is going to now be available to iPhone users thanks to the clever work of some smart people over at geekzone.co.nz which was probably not part of Vodafone's planned script.
So maybe the pencils will have to be sharpened a little to entice people to the plans once more.
I'd more interested in whether someone not "tech savvy" gets close to it. The clueful, such as RB, will be painfully aware of their data usage, mentally cataloguing every byte in order to avoid paying $100/GB in overage. It's the neophytes who will think "Ohh, purty, new, shiny, toy. Must play!"
Oh, I'd pretty much say it's a given that in 6 weeks time the Herald et al will be gleefully running the stories of massive iPhone bills as the first month rolls over.
That's about the time I'd expect/hope to see Vodafone rethink current data limits.
Russell, I'm sure a lot of people would be interested to know how quickly you use up data on it. Would personally be fascinated to know whether someone (tech savvy) like yourself gets close to that 250MB level over the month.
Have seen screenshots of the usage setting which splits out the cellular data use, so apparently is very easy to keep track of what you are using 3G vs Wifi.
Almost rudely off topic (I have ranted too long on geekzone about the iPhone plans)
Someone explain this,
Why would Apple decide to add the positively obscure censors rating of RP16 to the parental controls drop down for (as yet unattainable) New Zealand movies between itunes 7.6 and 7.7?
Why, why, why i wonder?
My prediction - iTunes movies in NZ before summer.
(although, why, why, why has New Zealand been even in that drop down for a number of dot upgrades of iTunes?....
another of life's little conundrums.
and also....where is TV3 in all of this????
Right, time for some conjecture re the new TVNZ ondemand.
No Macs...but see below..
International content will cost.
NZ content free.
iTunes 7.1 is out today and lo and behold, little old NZ is one of the only 5 countries that you can now put parental controls on TV and Movies, implying imminent sale of said TV shows and Movies on our iTunes store.
Can we assume that the same international content soon to be available on TVNZ is going to be replicated on iTunes NZ?
Will locally made content be a) available and b) free on iTunes NZ as well?
If this is all correct...
Why on earth did TVNZ bother with setting up a whole service when the tech, platform agnostic (sorry Linux) answer was right there????
here we go, here we go, here we go.......
