iPhone 3G S in the UK: what you need to know

Mark

hmmm (2)

Quite interesting really the reaction. On a personal level, I have had a iphone 3g for about 8 months (review device they forgot about), and was absolutely 100% definitely going to get one as soon as it was announced.

Now I'm not so sure. The pricing is nothing short of scandalous.

Sorry for the lengthy post...

Here's my workings. The 44.05 deal for 16gb seems best for me........

mins/texts - (monthly price x contract period = total) + phone cost = total cost

18 months:

3GS 16GB

75/125 - (29.38 X 18 = 528.84) + 184.98 = 713.82

600/500 - (34.26 X 18 = 616.68) + 184.98 = 801.66

1200/500 - (44.05 X 18 = 729.90) + 87.11 = 817.01 <--------------- My best deal. £15 extra for double the mins every month. thats £15 extra on the total value, not per month

3000/500 - (73.41 X 18 = 1321.38) + 0 = 1321.38

3GS 32GB

75/125 - (29.38 X 18 = 528.84) + 274.23 = 803.07

600/500 - (34.26 X 18 = 616.68) + 274.23 = 890.91

1200/500 - (44.05 X 18 = 729.90) + 175.19 = 905.09

3000/500 - (73.41 X 18 = 1321.38) + 96.89 = 1418.27

24 Months:

3GS 16GB

600/500 - (34.26 X 24 = 822.24) + 87.11 = 909.35

1200/500 - (44.05 X 24 = 1057.20) + 0 = 1057.20

3000/500 - (73.41 X 24 = 1761.84) + 0 = 1761.84

3GS 32GB

600/500 - (34.26 X 24 = 822.24) + 175.19 = 997.43

1200/500 - (44.05 X 24 = 1057.20) + 96.89 = 1154.09

3000/500 - (73.41 X 24 = 1761.84) + 0 = 1761.84

There seems to be no real reason to go for 24 months which seems odd?

The unlimited text bundle is 132.12 for the 18 months, so add that to whatever figure your interested in if you need it.

Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah set for top two spots in Christmas Day charts

The cause

Just to point out.. the aim of the group is not to stop Sony BMG making money - in fact most know full well they stand to win whatever happens. Nor is it to mindlessly slate Miss Burke.

It's simply to highlight the greatest version of the song. If it achieves number 2 at the weekend... then that has been achieved. Of course regardless of the Alexandras talent, most would say its a pretty weak cover. Thats not her fault though.

MySpace wins UK domain name that pre-dated its service

Mark
Thumb Down

Well thats the registration platform down the pan

Is there any point in registering domains anymore? If a large company wants one of my domains, and I happen to have advertising on it, I lose it?

Absolutely astounding.
