Shock horror, if people are allowed to take stock from a shop without a cash register, sometimes it won't be paid for. I don't know, what's the solution, ask for a till receipt before leaving with the stock perhaps?
Re: Dials of WTF handsets
You used to be able to make free calls from pay phones by tapping the button the correct number of times, the area code for where I lived was 478 so it was 6 pulses, wait, 3 pulses, wait, 2 pulses, etc.
I was very glad there were no 1s or 0s in my home number.
The thing apple did was got the networks to bundle data with the iphone, where as if you wanted it on the N95 you paid through the nose.
So I don't think the original iphone was superior to the N95, but the experience was.
Not quite sure why you thing demand for bandwidth will top out... new services are constantly being introduced which will use more and more data
My guess is that currently most people use very little data, and a small proportion of consumers use a great deal. It doesnt take much imagination to see that if the behaviour of those few consumers starts to become the norm (probably driven by price of mobile data dropping) there could be an order of magnitude increase in data being consumed.
Plus the usual growth from devices wanting HD video streams when perviously it was SD only etc
You are just letting your anti apple perspective run away with you. The consumers pay for data, the provider sells that access, but decides it can apply a tax on a particular service (which it doesn't provide itself).
Well that fine until they decide to do the same thing to skype... and the next service (iplayer anyone) and then the next, until the provider is taxing all of the added value things you want to do.
It's crap, and I hope Apple fights AT&T on it, the principle is important, not your dislike of apple.
Because at the time not everyone had a phone which would receive email, but almost all mid to high end phones could receive mms. Also mms is pushed to the device, for most email is polled, which is why even now people use messaging (SMS, whatsapp, imessage...) as it is more instant

Actually to be fair, that's to add LTE and 3G, which no one I know of is doing for £100.
The base model costs are quite reasonable, it's just the extortionate amount they want to charge in order to add memory that makes me baulk.
I am most pleased at being able to delete stuff from photo stream though. Don't understand why it was ever missing...
