    LIME a try come good. Is this gonna give them a special bump and a niche in the market. Why I never hear bout the ‘freeness’ in advance. Are the prices good in your opinion – relative to what u get in quality consistency etc?

    Is LIME doing enough to hype itself and its products

      personally the prices and/or packages could be better. I’m not an iPhone kind of guy but as a techie I am happy to see more smartphone choices to potential customers and this is good for the overall industry

    What apps were given for free? Were they only free apps for those who purchased the iPhone? Were free apps available for other phones ie Blackberrys?
