Since my last post (ages ago) I shelled out for a black iPhone 4. This was on an 18 month contract with Orange. At times their network coverage and speed has been frustrating so I arranged for the phone to be unlocked to all networks.
Six months later and Apple have finally released the iPhone 4 in White. I wanted a white one all along so have ordered one. The old iPhone was sold on eBay.
Having been without my iPhone for over a week now has demonstrated how attached to the thing I am.
