N95 8GB: Phone start-up failed. Contact the retailer.

Ah dear. I dug out my N95 8GB the other day and charged it up. I was going to try and use the device more – as a camera (because if you recall it arrived from T-Mobile UK without data functioning). Well. I can’t use it. Not at the moment. I’ve never seen this message […]

It appears not a week goes by these days without another Walkman mobile showing up, this time around they’ve released the W705 into the ether.

Should you be fired for sending 12,000 private texts on a work phone?

UPI reports that the Italian Supreme Court isn’t having any of Telecom Italia’s attempts to fire one of it’s employees. Apparently the employee knocked up 12,000 private text messages from his work phone.

Mr Pullen is taking us to Fresher’s Week

Here’s an introduction to Daniel Pullen — a new recruit to Mobile Industry Review. Daniel is shortly heading off to Uni and I’ve asked him to give us a horse’s-mouth style viewpoint on just how the mobile operators pitch him during the Fresher’s Week (the introductory shenanigans popular at most UK Universities). Plus, I’ve tasked […]
