News & Rumors
Ever lost your BlackBerry and had the pleasure of finding out that the person that found it had been making phone calls? If so, and you're in the UK, you will be pleased to know that many of our phone networks will be introducing bill caps which should be in place by next Spring.
This new move has been agreed between the government and UK carriers EE, Three, Virgin Media and Vodafone, so if you report your phone stolen you will at least have the reassurance that you won't receive a huge bill. Unfortunately, phone theft is a big problem in many cities, so a nice move by all parties involved.
The word on the street is that operators will inform customers when these price rises will take place, and give them the option of ending the contract without any penalty if these occur. Operators including BT, Sky and Talk Talk have also agreed to work towards an EU target of eliminating international roaming fees by 2016.
Considering BlackBerry's market share here in the UK the news should go down rather well.
