apparently samsung and nokia are going to provide handsets, question is are they going to be special handsets or can you just shove a sim into any old handset?

well, my apologies for not posting it earlier for all you hunks and babes

I like the blog comment I saw about it

http://www.goebel.net/technews/2007/...live-with.html

Apparently before every phone call you have to answer questions like "Which of these celebs are you the most like: Eva Longoria, Penélope Cruz, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, ... ?" and Blyk recommends you the adequate L'Oreal lipstick.

That makes me wonder what happens to customers who don't look similar to super models. Are they not allowed to talk?

With 26 people on their who's who page, all no doubt wanting to be earning £30K+ per annum, they've got a million quid wage bill before they start.

It will be interesteing.

217 teats and 43 free minutes a month.... not a lot really?

What's to stop you getting your kids to get "invited", then you use the sim.
