    Don't waste your time reporting this to ASA. They have already told us that they wont do anything about the 02 Unlimited* advertising.

    As for the advertising, thats great. I'm still waiting to see the TV Adverts.

    from what i read in another thread, this was only because it was their website which was the subject of the complaint letter not an advert.

    You can try if you like, but from past experience, you wont win. 02 is a huge company. They have some of the best and most experienced people working for them, as do most large companies, therefore, aren't going to leave loop-holes open for members to ruin them like that.

    This was the point precisely sananda.

    It is ridiculous for people to suggest that because O2 is such a big company it is somehow immune from censure by the ASA if it indulges in misleading advertising.

    i am not personally doing anything. and i haven't seen any of their advertising so i don't know whether they are misleading, false or amount to a misrepresentation that is likely to induce someone into entering into a contract.

    however, i support members here who say that their use of the word unlimited is inappropriate. and if they did advertise and/or induce on that basis, the amount of experienced people they have working there would be entirely irrelevant. do you suppose that members do not have experience or perhaps jobs that make them expert in these matters? we are not all 16.

    We don't have 'moms' here in the UK. We have Mothers, Mums, or Mummy's (if you're young or rich!).

    Actually old boy, I call my mother 'mater' and my father 'pater', and as a matter of fact we are just sitting down to some kippers and devilled kidneys for breakfast before going out with the local hunt to give those foxes a damned good thrashing! :D

    As promised, when I went to get Leopard, I saw the ads - you can only see them coming out of the Oxford Circus station rather than going back in;

    Personally glad we haven't seen any after watching at the London Event and hearing that cringe-worthy British voice doing what the silky American one said so much better.

    O2 seems to be just plying the info Apple is giving out, so it's them we need to hurry up!

    11 Days, 12 Hours, 2 Minutes until I join the queue :D

    I'm more than a little bit surprised by the lack of advertising. Here we are less than two weeks away and no TV advertising and nothing new on Apple, O2 or CPW websites.

    Combine that with the less than generous tariffs and having to actually buy :eek: the iPhone, and I wouldn't be surprised if the whole UK iPhone launch wasn't distinctly underwhelming.

    I really hope so, at least until demand from those of us who are Apple fans and have been waiting months is satisfied.

    However, I think that this is one of those products that generates a market for itself once it is seen out in the wild, so there may be a delayed reaction.
