    My T-Mobile contract ends this month and I was going to transfer to PAYG but, after many e-mails and telephone discussions I'm going to bin the SIM because the cost - £2 per day - is so much higher than Vodafone and Three.

    I obtained an unlock code from T-Mobile last month so I can use other SIMs in the dongle. I already had a Vodafone phone (Internet 50p per day) which I can connect to the netbook (by cable or Bluetooth) if I don't want to move the SIM over.

    Also got two free SIMS from Three. Initial top-up is £10 on registering credit card but that lasts forever (so long as you use the SIM at least once every 180 days) and can be used to buy Internet access at 50p per day or £2.50 for 7 days. Also there is 150 MB of Internet access free every time you top up (min top-up £5).

    Has the date not already passed?

    Also if it is still on does anyone know what happens if you miss a top up,

    eg...you top up
    Jan
    Fen
    Mar
    Miss April
    May
    and so on
    Do you lose the free Internet and texts?

    Hope that makes sense :thumb:

    TIA

    hi graham,

    my dongle contract with T mobile is also close to the end and i also thought of going the payg route but with who i dont know.

    all the daily prices you quote.....are they only when you use the dongle or is that a 'standing' charge.
    also, is the charge fixed for a full day or part thereof ?

    Hi Steve

    the offer is still advertised, I would assume if you miss a top up you lose the free texts and web.. it is a 'contract' to top up £10 per month.


    as an aside, I'm still using my iPhone O2 Sim I got from ebay last year, I paid a one off top up of £10 .. surf for 12months free

    Vodafone daily charge is just on the days you access the Internet.

    With Three you get 150MB every time you top up but have to use it within 90 days (which ain't bad by my reckoning) or lose it. When you buy "Add-ons" from your credit balance you get access that lasts a day for 50p or access that lasts 7 days for £2.50. Not sure (as I'm new to it) how much I can do with 150 MB but I reckon that for a weekend away like Newark it might see me through - and if not it will only cost me a couple of quid to buy whatever I need.

    What you do need is to get an unlock code from T-Mobile so that you can use a Vodafone/Three SIM in the dongle. They tried to charge me £15 at first but I told them I wasn't having that so they gave it me for nowt. They also reckoned it would take 28 days to send it by post - it did but I also insisted they send it by e-mail and I had it within day or so.

    No, unlocking should allow it to work on any network, sorry if my previous post was misleading.

    I mentioned Vodafone and Three because that's what I have - the reason being a combination that should give me decent coverage wherever we get to.

    Ive never used a dongle before so forgive my lack of knowledge.

    Are you chaps talking about using a lappy with a dongle that uses the same sim card that you use for texting on a moble phone or Blackberry/ I Phone type jobby.

    Yes. You may have to have the SIM enabled for data services but if you can access the Internet on your mobile phone it should be possible to use the SIM in a dongle and/or to link the phone to a lappy by cable/Bluetooth to use it as a modem.

    Thanks Graham. I actually saw one of these I Phone jobs yesterday but it wasnt Internet enabled. It was fantastic or at least it looked it.

    Its interesting how people are moving away from Desktop Computers and Land Line telephones. The future seems to have arrived. Must take more interest.

    Cheers

    I thought all iPhones were Internet enabled but I've never looked closely at them. I did look at a Blackberry once but the keyboard was too small to be comfortable for me. Takes me half an hour to text a single word on my mobile :BigGrin:

    I still use desktop computer and landline at home as they are more convenient/cheaper - they're only tools when all is said and done :Smile:

    I dont use any of the more sophisticated equipment because I dont need it. I'm thinking more about when we get away for longer periods of time.

    Trouble is, as with everything, if you dont keep abreast of whats going on, you wake up one day and find youve got to go on a course.
