  1. Good shout in the '3 Christmas' section chaps:

    E71 = yes
    N96 = yes
    Fancy HTC device (Xperia is HTC produced) = yes
    SEc905 = nope

    3 out of 4 not bad!

  4. Hey just listened, about the MMS flaw that is absolutely shocking. Oh dear!
    About Brand Evangelism, I think its something all companies should be doing. From what I have seen of Vodafone's service it looks very good. You don't seen any other Uk operator doing that!
