    Well - yes - it is hype! thats what advertising is about.

    I saw the add run during 'The Street' at about 7:50 (Yorkshire region - may be different for others) & NO I was NOT watching it - wife had it on

    me too.

    their plan is probably to roll the tv ads off the back of the launch hype.

    Folks - bear in mind they would have bought these tv slots a while before today. If O2 had actually done a decent job, these ads wouldn't be minded a bit. (bar general stock availability)
