My iPhone purchase is complete. I went to the O2 shop in Northwich and spoke with a marginally useful young man about 3G coverage and the small print around the inclusive data tariff.
I’ve got the phone activated and setup on my home wifi network and it works a dream.
One real showstopper of a problem, however is the truly shitty phone reception I’m getting at home. No 3G and no Edge connection and only 1 or 2 bars on the GPRS connection. Often it tells me I have no signal at all. Now that is worrying.
The agreement with O2 has a 14 day cooling off period though, so I will use that time to see how coverage elsewhere fares.
More to follow on the iPhone blogger.
