There is no obvious solution to my iPod and mobile phone simultaneously indicating they’re on the way out1. None.

Actually, one look at the O2 tariffs suggests there really isn’t. £269 for the iPhone, then £35/month for 200mins/200texts/unlimited data? I think not. Given that my phone and iPod have together cost me £10/month all year, I can’t even consider something like that. I’ll wait for the gPhone.

  1. whacking the former on the table, as per Ed’s suggestion, has actually done the trick for now []
