Getting nothing done quickly with mobile data

Sometimes I really do despair with the state of the mobile experience here in the UK. This evening I’ve been in Swindon and then in and out of London. Something must be going on with all the networks. Or maybe I got out of the wrong side of bed and ended up carrying around a […]

Sometimes I long for the BlackBerry days

Do you remember the good old days when you could:  1. Write a text message to a friend and hit ‘send’, safe in the knowledge that it would be transmitted without any further action?

Five minutes was all it took to exit the relationship with Vodafone. I phoned up on Sunday and said I’d like to either renegotiate or get my PAC number.

The company, which is owned by London buyout house BC Partners and employs 5,596 people, said […]

Is £399 still too much for the Amazon Fire Phone?

I logged into the web version of Amazon yesterday and was greeted by this take over screen: It’s the promo for the UK version of the Amazon Fire Phone, exclusively available on O2. If you choose the lowest £13/month tariff (24-months) on the always helpful O2 Refresh plan, then the Fire Phone will cost £399. […]
