Credit where credit is due. In the Nick of time a Vodafone micro sim arrives in the post.I met @Martuiak for a beer a couple of days ago and he said Vodafone would be happy to sponsor the data from my trip into Africa with @DarenBBC on his #TAGid project (more on that later). This is a bit of an experiment for both of us as we have no real idea what coverage is likely as I have no idea where my assignment will take me once I get into Nairobi. Never the less getting this sim has forced my hand into taking my over priced O2 iPhone 4 back to the O2 shop cancel my contract and pick up an unlocked iPhone 4 to use with this sim. Those that know me will know my normal phone (that I use for all calls and a little data) has a great contract (also Vodafone) that I have nurtured for well over 10 years. This means I will be leaving O2 behind me and to be honest this will not just save me cash, It will also save me stress. Since embracing social media and jumping headlong in, Vodafone have always been a Tweet away. As a heavy data user (don’t start me on O2’s 500 meg limit) I need this kind of service. I guess this blog is to thank Dave for his assistance in helping TAGid to communicate with the outside world over the next few days but also to thank Vodafone for keeping me connected for the last God knows how many years. Now let’s see if the Vodafone sim magically cures all the faults with the iPhone 4. 🙂
Talking, teaching and documenting using mobile tools. Running workshops and consulting worldwide with a focus on social technology.
Sounds fab! I’m so glad you took your o2 phone back 😉
Hi @hedgewytch I remember you telling me i had paid over the odds at the time. An off the shelf is not only the cheaper option it also means i can use a sim i trust. Cheers.
