Ah, should have returned to the thread slightly sooner! Thanks so much for putting the offer out there for Metro users, as from looking invites don't seem to be the easiest things to procure!Ebeneezer Scrooge wrote:I have three oneplus invitations that have 2 days left on them. If anybody is interested, PM me your email and I'll forward one on. £280 for a well specced 5.5" smart phone, rooted and running cyanogen (android 5 on it's way in the new year).
Will, I popped into town yesterday and eventually found a Passport in an EE store (Carphone Warehouse had a lot of dummy models of phones, including high-end devices?), and it felt... weird? It's a reasonably weighty thing which you have to cradle from the bottom because of the placement of the keyboard, and I didn't feel like I had the most secure of grips on it! The keyboard itself was also slightly strange to me due to the lack of a shift key, numerals etc which mean you have to use the touch screen, which wasn't always showing me numbers, and the placement of the space bar in the middle of the bottom row was also something I struggled with. Obviously over time I would adjust to the layout and I'm sure it wouldn't inconvenience me long-term, but it did seem slightly off-putting - but if I haven't decided by the time it becomes available I will go and play with a Classic, as it has the traditional keyboard I know and enjoyed before! The OS seemed pretty solid and the Android apps loaded on did indeed work perfectly, so clearly a major step-up there, although I don't think it's been communicated enough as until you told me I had no idea how the OS and app support had changed!
Vodafone are currently doing an iPhone 6 with 600 minutes, Unlimited texts and 1gb of data for £38.50 a month, no upfront, which is pretty good. 1gb of data is more than I have now, so it should be fine, but 4G hasn't made it to Ipswich on Voda yet, although O2, EE and Three all have it here. 3G at work is 'outdoors only' according to the signal page, the same as O2 and it annoys the hell out of me. Do they practice the Orange-introduced 'Hello, we're increasing the price of your contract lol' policy, as I've read conflicting answers about whether they do or don't?
