Here’s just a quick update on the pricing of the just released Sony Ericsson K850i here in the UK. It seems after it was finally released two days ago, Orange is now offering the SE K850i for free on an 18-month contract which costs ?30 per month and includes 350 minutes and 200 texts, however at the moment only the green K850i is available via Orange… (this offer has not yet been released via the Orange website, this was discovered via the CarphoneWarehouse) Incomparison O2 is also now offering an 18-month tariff which gives you a free handset as well, just to be competitive, the price for line rental is also ?30 per month and includes 400 free minutes and 500 texts.
Over 1200 McDonald’s restaurants in the UK will soon be offering free WiFi to all those who choose to dine in by December this year. This plan aims and hopes to attract more customers to its restaurants says the food giant’s information services vice president.
The iPhone is once again free! Following the not so hopeful jailbreak for iPhone v1.1.1 yesterday by a non-Dev Team (possibly called the ‘Elite’ iPhone Team), we now have one that does a much better job of breaking free the Apple iPhone firmware v1.1.1.
However, before I go on to summarise this new v1.1.1 unlocking method
there is one bad news… this new hack is not applicable to those who used anySIM or iUnlock to unlock your iphone, if you do use it, it will brick your iPhone! (<–See update at the bottom) For everyone who used hacks like TurboSIM, IPSF Paid solution, etc… you will be able to use it.
This is an update regarding Samsung’s latest handset set to soon launch in the UK, the F210. It is now official that the F210 will arrive the UK by 12 October (which is this friday!).
However if you can’t wait and want to reserve your bid for it, it is possible to order it now via Vodafone, there are no extra charges for pre-ordering and delivery is free, the tariff to come with your pre-order will be a 12-month contract, costing ?40 a month with 500 minutes and 500 texts.
Just two days ago, we mentioned about CarphoneWarehouse’s update to providing pre-orders for the SE K850i (only on O2 though). Well today, another one of the UK’s largest independent mobile phone retailer, Phones 4U has announced on their website that both the K850i and W910i will be available to take home from over 400 of their local high street shops as of October 12. Like the CarphonesWarehouse, they are now also offering the option to pre-order for both of these phones.
As you can see in the image to the left, the tariff for K850i offered by Phones 4U has been serviced by Vodafone which differs from that provided by the CarphoneWarehouse (O2). Read on for more on the pricing of these phones currently offered by Phones 4U…
If you have been reading our post from yesterday regarding the latest Apple iPhone firmware v1.1.1 update you will know that there has been an ongoing debate about whether iPhones which had been unlocked for use with non-AT&T sims will still work after this recent software update.
Well, up til this moment, after lots of testing with various sims and many attempts to re-activate, many iPhone readers and experts now believe that Apple has managed to create a software update that is AnySim and iPhone Sim Free proof!? There is now also a video uploaded in Gizmodo, this video demonstrates the whole process of updating the software on an iPhone Sim Free unlocked iPhone. The verdict is… after software update, the activate iphone screen crops up and unless you have a valid AT&T sim & contract, it won’t be possible to activate it.
