Oh, and I booked an appointment at the Apple Store to get one of the new iPhones on Friday. I know I'm going to get one at some point, so I might as well get it now - it's not like it's going to come down in price, or get better. I have some line rental left with Vodafone to pay off, but only 'til September.

16 gig on PAYG I think. I make almost no calls so it will end up cheaper, and O2's tethering charges are a rip-off (also I have an existing 3G dongle contract with T-Mobile which hasn't run out yet, and I doubt tethering using Bluetooth will work with my EEE).

Slightly concerned that I may not have my PAC to transfer my number by Friday which might confuse matters, but I can always not activate the phone until I get it; there's a thing on O2's site which you can use after receiving a phone in the post after all so it should be fine.

that's it really

What took you so long! My iPhone is only 2G but it isn't worth upgrading until I am out of my 18 month contract soon, but when it is up I will be doing it asap. Must say 3.0 software upgrade solves a lot of the irritating problems too such as cut, paste and search.

I have 2 friend who had Black(fill in rest of word here)business contracts who says that they wish they had changed over LONG ago.

Unfortunately, I need monthly as we have almost no wireless coverage in our part of the world.

Shouldn't it? That seems like a fairly standardized technology stack (albeit a fickle one).

I don't know if you've got Windows or Linux running on your eee, but fwiw I switched from the OEM Xandros install to eeebuntu yesterday after being tired of not being able to apt-get install gimp and so far it generally seems to Just Work, Better, which I sure appreciate.

I have Ubuntu NBR running on it, which is generally very good, but bluetooth support is flakey with Linux at the best of times.
