02: Unlimited means Unlimited

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Last week I was ready to kill every single member on the board at 02... as of today i sincerely regret my harsh feelings and I now would like to lick their collective faces.

Macworld.co.uk has just reported that Matthew Key (the Chief Executive of 02) has scrapped the 200mb data cap because Unlimited data plans with caps are confusing for customers.

So now... Unlimited really means Unlimited.



Fair Usage Policy from the 02 site, FAQ:

Your O2 tariff for iPhone allows you unlimited use of O2 UK’s Edge / GPRS networks and The Cloud’s UK Wireless LAN network, for personal internet use, email and Visual Voicemail (VVM) on your iPhone only. All usage must be for your private, personal and non-commercial purposes.

You may not use your SIM Card in any other device, or use your SIM Card or iPhone to allow the continuous streaming of any audio / video content, enable P2P or file sharing or use them in such a way that adversely impacts the service to other O2 customers.

If O2 reasonably suspect you are not acting in accordance with this policy O2 reserves the right to impose further charges or disconnect your tariff at any time, having attempted to contact you first.

Ace! That's good news indeed.

Any other UKers getting their iPhone on launch day?

OK, one more thing I didn't like about iPhone fixed.

All we need now is 3G I believe, and then I'm there. Everything else is liveable with. An SDK and real unlimited data will do quite nicely.

Good new indeed.

Ill be getting one but not yet. Im going to wait and see if they bring out any better price plans after xmas as its pointless me taking out the current one. I need at least double the minutes and textx what they offer.

Oddly I don't need 3G as O2 doesn't have 3G reception anywhere near me. They don't have EDGE either. Just bought a new Ricoh, so that solved the shit camera dilema.

None of which bothers me particularly. It's the prices and lack of 3rd party apps that bother me currently. A phone is useless to me without an ssh client on it.

that's good news, i am on 3, and their internet browsing system is appalling, and its not really unlimited.
ill be getting mine on launch day (hopefully), if i can't, ill probably wait till december...

btw, does anyone know how much the cancellation fee will be on 3, i am in my 12 month of an 18 month contract, and i want to switch (to get an iPhone), will it be ridiculously extortionate?

Cheers,
Adam--

You'll have to pay the remaining contract ie. 6 months.

3 aren't that bad. Posting this from a 3 3G connection. They do annoyingly limit you to port 80 (and a few others) but in general the connection feels pretty fast and fairly solid.
