Sheesh, 1 - 2 weeks more is pretty good. They pretty much hit their deadline right on the nose. I'm sure they have sever upgrades and what not to do. I give them an A+ if it starts rolling out in the next couple of weeks. Job well done MS.


i doubt it because he says emphasis on START OF in the blog....meaning the unlocked versions will start to get it in the next two weeks and carrier versions will get it.........who knows?

I don't see that anywhere.
Where

sorry you're right....i forgot where i read that but I did read that there was an emphasis on START OF


Edit


Hi everybody. Thanks for your questions. I’ll have more details to share about the update once it begins in the next week or two. But by “roll out” I mean we’ll be starting the actual delivery process--emphasis on starting.

My lot answered me today this was how it went.

Me

Frustrated and an annoying question time again LOL.

Any word on my Mango update from 3 ? Will it be this month ? Thank you ever so much.

Please don’t tell me you don’t know, because I know you do LOL ;o)

Them

Silence

Me

Hmmm still no reply to my Mango enquiry. What’s the big secret 3? Come on!

Them

David – We can’t confirm the timings around Mango at the moment. As soon as we can we’ll let you know.

A likely story me thinks. It's easier getting blood out of a stone. Sigh

That's lame.

TBH, I've never been a fan of 3. I don't know about now, but their tariffs used to be expensive and the customer service... even worse.

Yeah well i have been with them for years and because of that i get a loyalty discount so get my monthly tariff (The One Plan) for ?10 which included my Omnia 7 for free.

No moans about that, 5000 texts, unlimited data, 5000 3 to 3 minutes, 2000 mins to any network. Now that's a bargain me thinks.

Customer service is pretty rubbish apparently tons of moans about it but i have only had to call them twice about things and they were great with me.

I guess i must have been lucky. Here where I live, I can't fault the service it works great all the time.

Where else could i have gotten a free Omnia 7 and and all that for ?10 ? :)

The normal price for a SIM only deal (The One Plan) is ?25 nothing comes close on the other UK networks as far as i know.

Info on The One Plan (Click the more about the one plan link)

^^ Really can't argue with that; that's an absolute bargain. And, if you've been lucky enough not to have any problems (deal with their customer service) - even better. :)

I wonder if they're still the most expensive to call from a landline? Around 8 years ago they were literally 7 times the cost per minute than all of other service providers.

Didn't Ofcom put a stop to all that nonsense ? I think the mobile networks are all pretty standard now from a BT landline Big Supes.

That's encouraging to hear. :) TBH, I've been out of the telecoms for around 6 years now so I'm a little out of touch with regulations.

High Chance of Mango on Friday

I'm going to have to say yes to Friday. Microsoft said:
-The update is going well
-The update is almost ready
-The update will be within 2 Weeks, starting today
-Friday is the first day of Fall, so Microsoft can release it then.

It all points to Friday, this was actually my original guess.

Yes well it's not called The General Post Office now Big Supes, they changed it to British Telecom, then just BT. (The things you learn on here) ;)

Oh and if you're old enough to remember Buzby he's dead LOL

I would think we would see all those carriers who have publicly said they have finished testing to be among the first receipients of the update, along with unbranded handsets. Other carriers have not been as vocal and could be because they arent actually ready or just dont choose to.

Either way just seeing the updates begin to go out will be a plus, you'll at least know it will come.
