Total Breakdown of 3HK 3G Data Network

[Update: 11:24am] Finally it’s back up, at least in Wanchai area.

Since yesterday afternoon, I have been experiencing problems accessing my emails and surfing the net with my iPhone 3Gs with the 3HK 3G data network except for a brief two hours or so from 9:00pm to 11:24pm.  It was still dead this morning and I’m getting really frustrated.

At first I thought either my iPhone 3Gs went cuckoo or something’s wrong with my SIM card but not until I start searching through the local forums where I noted that the whole 3HK 3G data network was indeed paralyzed.

3HK, get your act together please, this is getting really annoying and it ain’t funny.

Worst thing is, you cannot even dial into 3HK’s hotline.

The following are just some related forum posts –

“我由尋日(18號)下午三點左右開始已經上唔到 ~ 我都以為電腦 / 手指壞 …. 因為我用電話都仲上到 ~ USB 手指一直試到而家都仲未上到 ! 電話都有一段時間死左 …. 大約係五、六點左右死左一陣 ! 點搞呀 ?! 我鋪頭有時上網做野要靠佢 !! 而家死得啦 !!” ~ PhontHK forum

The above sourced from local forum.  Seems like 3HK will be carrying the Sony Ericsson exclusively.  Rumours said they will be offering the price of HK$3,980 for old customers, the catch of course is a 18-month contract.  For higher service plan, the charge of the phone will be as low as HK$2,980.  The early releases are mostly the ones with English ROM.  Call your 3HK sales to find out more.

Another alternative is to get it from the local chain stores like Broadway or Fortress, but their prices as high as HK$6K+, Crazy.
