I’ve been trying to download the UNLIMAIL app on my K800i phone but to no avail, it’s either the servers are being swamped for requests or there’s something wrong with my phone’s WAP settings. I’d post more once I get the app working and have used the service.
Anyone who has tried UNLIMAIL? What’s your take on it?
