T-Mobile change their minds about data usage

T-Mobile Logo t-mobile

After absolute uproar yesterday when T-Mobile slashed their data allowance from 3GB to 500mb they have today back tracked a wee bit and decided that this will only apply to new and upgrading customers!

 

“On Monday 10 January 2011 we announced that, in line with the rest of the industry, T-Mobile would be reducing its Fair Use Policy for data usage to 500MB a month for all mobile phone customers. Following a further review of our policy, these changes will now be introduced from 1 February, to new and upgrading customers only – not existing customers.

There will be no change to the data packages for existing customers  for the duration of their contract and we apologise for any confusion caused. The revision to the Fair Use Policy is designed to ensure an improved quality of service for all mobile internet users."

Lysa Hardy, VP, T-Mobile UK

 

So my understanding of this is that if you were thinking of joining T-Mobile don’t bother. And if you are an existing customer and use a lot of data you had better start shopping around for a new network. Sounds harsh but they have nobody to blame but themselves.

Samsung Galaxy Player 50 – Unboxing Video

Samsung-Galaxy-Player-50

Up until now nothing could touch the Apple iPod Touch for music, video and playing games but now that Samsung has released the Galaxy Player 50 Apple may have a bit of competition. Running Android 2.1 the Galaxy Player is not dissimilar from the Galaxy S in terms of look and its user interface. With many Apple haters out there this could well be very nice alternative. At £149.99 the Galaxy Player is cheaper than the iPod Touch 4th generation but it does lack a few features that the iPod has. It does however have a few that the iPod does not have.

 

Check out the unboxing video below and watch out for the full review coming soon.
