Got the new BB on Sunday and would love to be able to tell what a great piece of kit it is, but I can’t, it’s a brick. At least it’s a brick until 4 p.m. tomorrow when Vodafone will graciously complete the port of my number from Three. In the meantime Vodafone don’t issue a temporary number to be used until they complete the port so I have resisted the temptation to fiddle, mainly because it would seem that not having the SIM provisioned seems to stop me connecting to my WiFi to download updates and apps.
I found a reasonable deal to get onto Vodafone, via Carphone Warehouse, £25 pm, 500 minutes, unlimited texts, 500 Mb data, £140 for the phone. So about £30 pm over the term of the contract, which is similar to deals I could have got on O2 or T Mobile, but with a little more certainty on signal coverage.
