Right, so remember last week, I was a total idiot and sent myself a 15 second video of rubbish (me, walking to the cinema) just because I could? And then I got the bill telling me that cost me £1.35 + VAT. Remember that? Ok, now read this bit from the X-Series blog.
So 3 UK writes: The 1GB fair use limit applies only to the “unlimited data” services listed, which currently include web searching and surfing, mobile mail and pod casts. These services are not very data intensive and it will be difficult to reach this limit in a month.
Now I’m hugely confused. What the hell constitutes ‘mobile mail’. I thought that’s precisely what I was doing, mailing the video to myself?
I really don’t know. I can’t believe how difficult it is to comprehend. It’s unlimited, or it’s not. Surely?
Well I got billed for it, anyway. So that much is true. Mobile mail ain’t included, clearly. Yahoo Mail, on the other hand, seems to be. At least, that’s what the customer services lady told me.
What a crazy situation. Stupid. Class-A stupid.
Here I am, a few days ago, praising the living daylights out of Three, … it’s rather painful to be the arse-at-the-back-of-the-room saying, ‘er, right, yes but…’
If anyone actually has a clue on the status of this, do let me know. Otherwise, my position on Three is currently: Wickedly good, but with arse billing exceptions dreamt up by some crazies.
