    I smiled lots when I read this earlier today, it helped pass the time until this place returned online.

    I'm not surprised o2 claimed that their customers hardly used data connections, until recently it cost a small fortune due to their lack of data bundles.

    A small amount of browsing easily swallowed up £10 in data charges for me last month.

    "Customers find 'unlimited with limits' confusing" - eh that's maybe because it's a total contradiction! Did he seriously admit to that blatant stupid bit of marketing?

    It's very good news.
    Now if O2 offer a hidden PAYG option, it will be perfect... for now. :D

    It's good news, except it pretty well clinches that we won't see network intensive apps such as Skype or Slingbox... because then "unlimited" takes on a new size meaning :eek:

    This is good news, less to worry about if iphone wont connect to my universities wireless. as they require a certificate to be installed and im sure this cant be done with iPhone

    I wonder how much was

    a) Just O2s decision
    b) In response to feedback
    c) In response to pressure from Apple.

    I only added the last one because I noticed there is no mention of unlimited data on any other phones on any of O2s tariffs.

    My favourite bit from the article was this:

    Which (reading between the lines) says to me that iPhone is (despite repeated claims from other manufacturers and naysayers) the first phone which makes proper use of the internet.
