    So I told 3 UK I was going to Vodafone today and they told me they would have the Galaxy S between the 15th and 20th of June with 1200 mins and unlimited texts and data ;)

    Interesting indeed, I had heard voda had captured the SGS for this first round in the UK.

    I might well be swung to 3, what with O2 cutting it's unlimited out.

    Does all this mean that O2 will get it as well, just not the 16?

    So what we could be looking at is simply an internl memory difference of 8gb instead of 16gb?

    I'll take the 8gb at

    Gibsonus - can you confirm where you heard this? I can't find hide nor hare of it on three.co.uk.

    I'm basically going to go with either three / t-mobile or O2, whoever comes out first :)

    Went into the 3 store yesterday, had another look at the dummy. They are expecting stock on Tuesday. The website still has no reference to SGS :( I think I'm going to buy through Quidco, should get

    If you read new 3 UK T&Cs, you'll find out that unlimited data means 500MB and 10p for each used MB after that.. OFCOM should act on all that unlimited crap long time ago.

    Fazzieng - Thanks for this, that means I'm swinging back to either O2 or Voda then... Silly three removing their only USP.

    It seems that O2 joined crap wagon allong with other providers..
    Their smartphone bolt-on (which was free before on O2 300+ and above), now will cost you fiver on top of every tarrif.
    Even more crappy is that O2 FUP is now 500MB instead of 3GB.

    If i may suggest..
    Pick T-Mob as their FUP for internet access on android smartphones is 3GB.
    Check their network coverage before though, as they tend to suck on good 3G signal in some areas..
    Good luck.

    I'm firmly with Voda now, not only will I get a 16GB handset (to put my 16GB Mico-SD in) but they are still at 1GB. Oh and through quidco you can expect

    Sorry I've been distracted by work for a week or so. I heard it from a customer services rep on the phone to 3 when i said i was leaving. This was a follow up call to this. He was very sure of it.

    Also i get 1 gig allowance from 3 and to be honest i use alot every month and i rarely get warning texts(twice in twelve months ;))

    In general i think 3 get a bad rep but I'd say they're generally good. My 2 complaints would be foreign call centres(i can just barely put up with it) and occassional call drops in very specific locations like 2 particular spots in the south side of my city. Weird.

    Looks like 3 has unlimited Internet limited at 500MB indeed :D but not their AddOns which are still capped at 1GB. Have a look here: Link Document

    Personally I have been using 3 for a few years now and have to say they are really good. No problems what so ever. Besides no other network offers VoIP as far as I know, not to mention unlimited VoIP :). Obviously every network offers something specific to attract customers but this works for me as I use Skype quite a lot.
