UK virtual network giffgaff, which launched four years ago as a SIM-only service, has started selling mobile phones directly to customers.
The Telefonica-backed company is offering a range of 20 unlocked handsets that can be bought outright or with a finance scheme for between six months and two years.
The Isis mobile commerce joint venture from AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless is now available to use across the USA.
It was originally announced in November 2010 and launched pilot schemes in the states of Texas and Utah last year.
UK-based road safety charity Brake is asking drivers to forget about hands-free calls and switch off their mobile phones completely.
Its new campaign, which has been launched at the start of the charity’s Road Safety Week, comes ten years after the use of hand-held mobiles whilst driving was explicitly banned.
