So the phone is activated now, and I see that the coverage in my workplace isn’t not great. I hope that Vox is working on improving their network coverage. EDGE coverage on Kirchberg is not good enough.
And no, the HotCity wi-fi network isn’t available on Kirchberg.
Being – I suppose – one of the lucky ones to get an iPhone on Saturday at Computerhome, I’m pretty disappointed that it is still not working. Today is Monday. The phone is not activated, so it only works on wifi networks for the surfing etc. so pretty much useless for the time being.
I sent an e-mail to Vox yesterday, and no reply yet.
Anyone had any luck? Someone that got theirs on Friday?
UPDATE: phone now activated (Monday night). Can now get on with the rest of my life…
Now that I have my iPhone, it is time to get involved in improving the the thing
A French site, http://www.iphoneideal.com lets you make suggestions for improvements and you can vote for suggestions made by others.
I’m sure that someone in Cupertino (maybe Bertrand Serlet :-)) can translate for Steve. Check it out.
Just received the news. Vox will have a launch party going on at their shop in Luxembourg City.
140 iPhones up for grabs. So youngsters, line up tonight if you want to be one of the first. No word on the data plan matrix yet, but I hope for Vox that it will be an attractive one. Otherwise I will stay on the fence for the time being, as I’m not a client.
From their e-mail:
140 additional iPhone3G’s are in stock !
In addition to the ones we blocked for the first 10 people, we have an extra stock of 140 phones that can be purchased during our launch party. As the demand is very high, we suggest you to be there on time to be sure to buy one on that evening.
Where and When ?
We welcome you as of 4 pm at our VOX shop in Luxembourg City, 1-5 rue Marché-aux-Herbes. Doors will be open from 6.00 pm til 9.00 pm.
Please bring your identity card and bank details with you.
Way back when, if software distribution for the Mac had been handled via a Mac App Store with a don’t-duplicate-Apple-products policy, Photoshop might have been refused distribution on the grounds that it was too similar to MacPaint.
Apple needs to revise its policy regarding the apps in the App Store. They can’t be sure to be the most suited company to develop all applications for the iPhone.
Vox has a page (very much like the one Mobistar had before launch). Vox’s iPhone site. There is a link from the front page.
No word on whether only Vox will be offering the iPhone, nor on the data plans… Exciting!
UPDATE: you can subscribe to a mailing list as well.
