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!

Depends on prices given my desire to move as many handsets as possible
onto PAYG now the data is the same price as contract ok Three…

Really had my heart set on an E71 but the Blackberry Bold looks
excellent and it's a pleasent surprise to see it on Three. Should
probably ask to trial the Experia – really hate Windows mobile based
on limited experience with the earlierst versions, but people keep
telling me it's improved…

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!
