WiFi calling works on some Vodafone tariffs too, the catch is you can't send or receive text messages while outside of their cellular signal, which can be a bit of an issue.

I hate to burst Vodafone's PR bubble, but I'm not convinced that all the failures happen in the way they describe.
I've had four units fail, each one with the lights remaining on. Each unit also burning hot to touch. When restarted, the lights *then* wouldn't appear, which suggests a more complex fault than just the MOV failing.
I can imagine the conversation went something along the lines of: 'I know. We'll tell them that their citizens can sue us through our courts, with our rules to protect the data that they won't even know we've stolen. That'll do. I bet those European idiots will buy this.'
I can't help but feel suspicious that the 'powers that be' are on the side of the Americans and simply want to find a way around the 'inconvenient' decision that the previous arrangement was illegal.
They are keeping the change very quiet: A quick call to Apple today showed that they are still only honouring a one year warranty, unless extended (and paid for).
Re: Mates' rates
Surely add in the UK's VAT rate at 20% leaves a price difference of just 5%?
I still say cleaner air is the way forward
but platinum sata cables would make for an interesting review!
You're right, it won't...
But don't tell anyone!
It's a bit like the 'sound enhancing SATA cables' nonsense. And Kate Middleton wearing plastic wrist bands to help balance her life... as for me, I'm off to buy some magic beans.
It's all down to the quality of the interconnects...
'Swapping the rWave dongle for a USB cable didn't have any noticeable impact on sound quality'
That does surprise me. Especially when you consider that the sound quality would be adversely affected by the quality of the air you are using.
For future tests, might I suggest you try using cleaner air? 'Air dusters' that 'dust' the air for you can be bought from places like Maplin. Expensive, but well worth the cost IMO.
