Finally got my r290 from 'ei'.
First one went missing, so after 4 weeks they shipped another - I was getting a bit nervy having paid the bucks - but the second arrived in 6 days.
Connected to Globalstar 35 plan today, everything seems to work on digital and sat although I had to ring Globalstar to change a few setting for SMS to work. Globalstar seemed very helpful. Can get the suspension facility ($11 / mth) for 3 months per year - girl on the switch said " chances are they won't check when you last did it so you will probably get away with the facility whenever you want" - worth a try I guess to save the $24 / month (I probably won't bother as I'd probably have forgetten to reconnect the one time I got bitten by Mr. Brownsnake or bogged in the swamp :-))

I love tech toys - I'll tell you about my Apple OS 10.3 one day - so its worth $35 a month to me for something new to play with (cheaper than the horses or pokies I reckon).

Thanks everyone who posted about the r290 here, esp. MightyQ who I think started the thread (apologies if it was someone else).

glad to see another tech toy nut and Mac user on the forum. I've got OS 10.3 running on some five machines at home, the oldest being an 8600/250 with a G3 upgrade card in it.
