Stop all the clocks and have a read….
3 UK writes: Because X-Series is an unlimited service (subject to fair use policy, of course), you will not be billed for any access to the Internet from your X-Series mobile and it will not show on your account.
We have not intentionally blocked access to services or prevented access to, or downloads from, any particular sites. However, we have not tested the service or the handsets for applications or uses other than those promoted by 3.
If you can download clients and access websites or web-based services of your choosing, then this access will be included as part of the Unlimited data offer, other than where we separately offer that same service with a client we have provided (such as Sling and Orb).
Please be aware that we cannot guarantee access to all sites through our network or that your X-Series handset can support any software other than the software included by 3 or the handset manufacturer. In addition, the manufacturer’s handset warranty may become void if it develops a fault due to any software or applications that are not installed on the handset by the manufacturer.
First off, I am absolutely loving the frank, direct and swift responses coming out of the Three X-Series blog. Absolutely wicked.
Second, my mind is now rested.
Third, my chest is filled with excitement for the industry.
I will not be billed for any access to the internet from my X-Series mobile.
Read that and weep Mr & Mrs o2VodafoneOrange.
I have made this a HOT posting. Three is officially HOT.
Now hear this. Two operators in the UK are now offering proper unlimited internet access from their handsets. One is Three. The other is T-Mobile.
If you are with any other mobile operator and you regularly use data — or WANT to use data — you should A) get your head examined and B) swap immediately.
It’s not good enough now. Do you remember my, WHY YOU’RE SCREWING UP THE MOBILE INDUSTRY — (that’s YOU as in the reader) post?
Well I’m going to start calling out people publicly now.
With the confirmation from Three that unlimited means unlimited (fair use, of course), there’s no excuse.
It’s an extra 5 quid for unlimited from Three or an extra 7.50 from T-Mobile.
Two week grace period before I begin publishing names, addresses and inside leg measurements……………… 😉
