Do not buy an iPhone from 02 Ireland. They are ripping you off!

It turns out that our friends in 02 Ireland are having a PR disaster when it comes to todays release of the iPhone here in Ireland.   Bloggers and consumers are up in arms over the horrific data plans that 02 are trying to force on their customers.

Nice try 02…  I hope this release fails, in a big way, and that you fix your data plans to bring them in line with the UK.   Not next month, not in two months…  but right now!

I am suggesting that everyone take a look at Pat Phelan’s advice on the same subject.
