I *think* existing users can upgrade within the 18 months.
Tethering sucks tbh as its far far too much, they should have a day charge if you want, say a £1 per day to do it when you need to or well it should be free tbh.
I would like the extra storage space as 16gb is causing annoyences for me.

Which is why it makes sense.

Not something a mobile network's really going to want going across their network.

You do know you can listening to streaming net over the iphone, that uses huge amounts of bandwidth along with youtube traffic.

Yes, I know, but you're not as likely to do that for too long, if for no other reason than that your battery's going to run out.

Personally I've got an N85 and a nice little app for it which turns my phone into a wireless access point whenever I need to hook something up through it, so the controversy's not really going to affect me.

No you muppet, that's the cost of the phone, the monthly tarrifs are along the top!

But at the same time equally as expensive.

Anyone here using a Simplicity SIM with the iPhone?

I've seen a few ways to tether the iphone without paying - I think o2 will cotton on to it sharp as and you'll get charged for use against the AUP.
however I also can't think of why I'd use it - I get web access on the phone, 3g is too flaky on the daily train route to use a vpn and otherwise I'd be in a town so use wi-fi...
So not particularly bothered here.
