this is wonderful news!
and that'll teach me for jumping the gun.

presumably it'll be out next week then?

Morgo

absolutely bloody marvelous...I can't wait to get it in my hands at last!

Thanks

Morgo

Just a quick one...I have not been able to get msn messenger on my W950i despite the service being advertised on your website and through planet 3 on my phone. My phone says there is not enough memory despite there being tonnes of space. is this something to do with the W950 being supported and will this be remedied now that X-series is available

my phone software is up to date, or so my updater software says!

Answers much appreciated

Jesse

But what about the N95!???

Neil Evans

Fantastic! All that complaining acually paid off!

I have the same problem as Morgo - can't install Messenger on my W950i...

Do we need to wait on a refresh of the Planet 3 website?

Can we sign up for X-Series right now?

Thanks,

Neil

W.A

Thanks de! you kept your promise, really appreciated.

I have same problem downloading msn, getting an error "no enough memory"

W.A

But isn't this another way of saying "Coming soon..." ?

Ian Chilton

Hi,

What does "our soon to be expanded mobile internet offer" mean?

Thanks

Ian

wappy

im gonna wait till some more phones come out it looks great but i bet there still some ironing out bugs better off waiting for nxt genaration to come out

Neil Evans

No sign of the W950i on the X-Series website yet. Can I order X-Series now for my W950i?? If not, when is the launch date?? More details please!

P M Doherty

yep, all i need now is an estimated launch-date to stop my repeated F5ing of the 3 site & blog.

Presumably the pricing will (initally at least) be £40 p/m with the phone at £99, as it's £35 (+ £99 for the phone) for the direct talker minus the £5 x-series bump.

What i'm wondering is, if it's possible to purchase the W950i with any of the other price plans and then add £5 for x-series on top? or is x-series only open to customers on the Direct Talker/Texter plans?

Thanks a lot.

Morgo

I don't know if I am happier now than when I know nothing!

A taste of honey is a terrible thing!!

Neil Evans

According to the FAQ, you can use x-series with ANY 3 mobile. The W950i is recommended as one of the better handsets.

Is this new? I haven't looked at the FAQ in months!

Neil Evans

Sorry - my mistake :-)

I misread it in my excitement. It does not list the W950i. Silver and Gold are only available on the E65 and N73. Bah.

P M Doherty

this is like an eternal christmas eve.
when when when?!?! wheney when when?!!

Thanks.

W.A

Coming soon...

:)

Neil Evans

Hi all,

Don't get too excited about this, but..

I called 3 today, and they have agreed to enable X-Series Silver on my W950i. I can only use it for internet access, Yahoo! search and email, but it's better than nothing!

I only wanted it for unlimited (fair use) data anyway :-)

I can download Messenger etc when they become available for my handset.

At least it's progress...

N

Neil Evans

Update : they just called back, and have now said that I can't use X-series for Mobile Mail.

That's fine by me, as I never use it anyway. Unlimited web browsing is my main requirement.

N

W.A

Mine got enabled last month. Mobilcast and mobilemail work perfectly fine.

Agile Messenger is a good replacement for Live messenger because you can even use it with gtalk account, though the data is counted towards your usage limit.

Daniel

Yeah, I'm using Agile until Three Aus brings out MSN support on the E65. It's not so bad - I may even keep it, depending on how I go with my data limit :)

W.A

I dont think you will ever cross the 1Gb limit for just surfing and chatting on the phone. Maybe if they come up with bittorrent clients!!

@ Daniel try Fring, it has support for skype, gtalk, msn and sip

@ Neil, MobileMail works fine, you can get it here http://mobile.three.co.uk/3prepayweb/pushmail/pm

I will recommend setting up the built in mail client to access pop account rather than using the battery sucking MobileMail

P M Doherty

Neil,
since you have the W950i + xseries silver enabled, did you have to opt for the direct texter/talker packages? or were you able to have x-series enabled on another tarrif?

Thanks a lot.

W.A

I got the phone in February as an upgrade from my previous contract with a 'Personalised plan' and the xseries sliver as an add-on.
So I do believe it can be enabled in any tarrif.

Morgo

Neil

Did they say anything about Skype?

So close yet so far...I'm tempted to get connected also and wait for the other programmes to be supported, but for how long do we wait?

Any clear dates yet DE

Neil Evans

Hi all - thanks for the tips! I've got Agile Messenger working now :-)
