    I wonder how long it will take for other GSM carriers (ie: Rogers Wireless, T-Mobile, Cingular, etc) to get the new 3G Treo in their stock?

    According to this post on HoFo http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?t=844878 it'll be near the end of this year (2006.)
    But that info is pretty sketchy. My assumption is about the same.

    I'm with Vodafone UK at the moment and in many ways it's a good experience. Coverage is great, GPRS is very reliable (hugely better than Orange), even customer service isn't too bad. This is the problem though:

    Vodafone UK data charges:

    Cost per month - usual value of services - data - cost per MB

    3 - 6 - 2.55 MB - 1.18
    6 - 12 - 5.11 MB - 1.18
    14 - 30 - 12.77 MB - 1.10
    25 - 60 - 25.53 MB - 0.98
    40 - 120 - 51.06 MB - 0.78

    I have the 25 pack so currently pay 25 (about 45 USD) for just over 25 MB of data. This already sucks, but put it in a 3G context and it gets much worse. I believe Vodafone's current UMTS is 384 Kbits/s, i.e. 48 KB/s. At peak data rate I could thus burn through my 25.5 MB allocation in 521 seconds, burning cash at a rate of 2.88 per minute. Yep, you read that right: more than five bucks a minute. And when the allocation is used up? The cost gets even higher, reverting to the oh-so-lovely standard rate of 2.35 per MB; now we're spending money at a rate of 6.90 (>12 USD) per minute. I would tentatively venture that I'm not the only one who finds this just a little too expensive.

    New 3G Treo on Vodafone? Great, but if they don't drop the data prices I don't really see the point. Sure, access to the Vodafone Live walled garden is free, but the content is extremely limited (it's a small selection web pages and services, mostly aimed at teenagers).

    For comparison: T-Mobile UK 'unlimited' data plan is 7.50 per month. If Vodafone want to sell me a new Treo they have to compete with this.

    Exactly i am currently on the T-Mobile unlimited data, and its great you just cant use PAM software. My plan is to wait till i can get one unlocked an pop my t-mobile unlimited data sim init. Theres no way i'm going to switch to get prices like that.

    I suppose it's possible that Vodafone might surprise us with cheap data plans, but if they don't do it soon I'll be gone. I guess I'll switch get the Nokia E61 or HTC Hermes (Vario II) when they're available on T-Mobile and think about eBaying when an unlocked Lennon becomes available. I quite fancy giving Symbian or WM5 a go, although with respect to the latter I'd rather have the Trinity than the Hermes (don't care for sliders and built-in GPS chip is very attractive).

    From Palm's perspective, I'm not sure they've made a great move allying with Vodafone. How are they going to break into Europe with a device that costs so much to use?

    marcol - there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. Vodafone in Ireland have just released new data plans for 3G/GPRS. They a selling the 3G PC-card for 49. Also some limited plans ...

    Unlimited -- 49/month
    Modest 15MB 10/month, then 2.50/MB
    Medium 25MB 15/month, then 2.00/MB

    All prices include VAT, 1 = 0.6875.

    A lot better than previously and hopefully, will get better. Voda-UK can't be far behind in reducing data costs.

    Yep we have that over here to but when you put it in comparison with T-Mobiles that expensive and plus that's with out any talk time or texts.

    So at the end of the month your bills going be about 70 pounds vs tmobiles 30 (Of which about 7.50 is the unlimited data)
