An unexpected surprise

Well, well, well, Orange has managed to partially redeem itself. The 6680 was delivered this morning, pretty speedy given I'd confirmed the order only yesterday afternoon and they'd quoted 2-3 days. However, they couldn't avoid one last cockup. It seems that new 3G connections get 2 promotional bundles, a 1000Mb/month data allowance and 30 minutes/month of video call for 3 months. Only, it seems that, because I already had a data bundle on my account, they can't start it till Tuesday when the billing period for the existing bundle ends. WTF?!? Did no one anticipate that new 3G subscribers might just possibly have had an interest in mobile date already or are their billing systems really that shite?!?

Anyway, not named the new phone yet (not as silly as it sounds - it needs a name for Bluetooth, synchronisation etc purposes). Lead candidate right now is Fenris but any and all nominations welcome, bearing in mind I've typically named my PCs and other devices after legendary monsters e.g.
  • Kraken
  • Golem
  • Leviathan
  • Baphomet
  • Dagon
  • Tienlung

Well, the other naming scheme I had considered was SF/fantasy females e.g. Scully, Ivanova, Vansen etc...
