    Check the fair usage limit on net use.

    T-mobile have the best deals for this phone. I get 1200 minutes, unlimited net (3gb FUP) and unlimited texts on 18 months for

    Not bad :) I chose against T Mobile phone as ive heard alot about poor network coverage, particularly in the Cambridgeshire area. Vodafone have atleast 3g coverage somewhere near where i live as well and seems pretty good :)

    500MB is the limit, although i read a response on an offical forum from a vodafone employee that the limit is not enforced. However, I will be discussing this with them tommorrow as I am still within my right to return my phone (14 days). Unlimited is misleading when the fair usage policy limit is so low.

    I use T-mobile for my phone, and our company uses it. Never had any issues in Cambridgeshire unless literally in the middle of no where - which is part of my area.

    What part do you live in?

    I have just phone called them, although the limit is 500MB (makes a joke out of unlimited), they say that its only if you keep on going over this, that they rarely charge or do anything about it.

    Never the less, 500MB is 16.6MB a day, which I am likely to go over with my email sycronisations, browsing the internet on the bus etc.

    Does anyone know my rights to cancelling my contract? i ordered through carphonewarehouse. My understanding is that it is my right within 14 days if I am unhappy.

    You have 14 days to change your mind if a new contract. Just dont start number porting UNTIL your happy, otherwise you'll have huge issues cancelling and getting your number back!!!!

    For upgrades, normally there is no option, although some networks say 0-7 days.

    Free international calls?

    Sounds like a good deal to me.


    I went with Orange cos I wanted 2-1 cinema tickets. :D
    500mb FUP .... I wonder if they DO enforce it.

    Free international calls is likely only UK to another country, not roaming when you're on holiday etc.

    Be very careful with the free international minutes. They may be free for you, but it may not be for the person recieving the phone call.

    An example was my friend in belgium who was being charged 30 euro cents a minute to recieve my phone call, although i was paying to call, the same will apply to if i was calling out of some inclusive allowance.

    I think only home phones are safe, but we await my friends phone bill.

    I think orange do enforce the 500mb deal, vigorously. I would definitely not go over it if i was you. I think they charge

    T-Mobile are the cheapest and have the best internet fair usage policy.

    Never had this problem with them and I've definitely went over the limit more than few times and the coverage + Wednesdays are superb - good choice :)

    Also - watch out for cancelling contracts under the 14-day policy with Yodafone. It took my 5 months to unwind it, receiving bills for over
