So they're effectively paying me £105 to stay (£185, less 12 x £15, plus the £100 I'll make on ebay)!I've been paying £25/month for 120 any/any + 250 texts for the last year. Plus I bought my phone for £120 (early Treo 600). The guy said that makes me worth keeping as a customer. Crazy if you ask me, but I'm not complaining.

Those who know me IRL may have been subjected to my "Brits invented everything" rant. This Wired article puts the case succinctly:
...British inventions -- the gas turbine and jet engine, railways, penicillin, radar -- had become the cornerstones of several key American industries. The British invented, the Americans profited. Why? It's not because Americans are sleazy opportunists. Instead, these American visionaries were bold enough to think they could change the world and pragmatic enough to use whatever technology and information existed.
BTW, add "electronic, programmable, digital computers" to that list, would ya?
