    So all I am allowed to do is surf the net, check emails? And thats it?

    So I guess I better just use Wifi when at home. As I already racked up 100 megabytes in two days over 3g.

    So no autmatic data feeds:

    So no friendstream?

    No multmedia streaming:

    Oh so no youtube?

    This is fairly normal really.

    I check mail, browse, use apps like IMDB, New Scientist, Wapedia, Engadget, Facebook, Movie Show Guide, RAC traffic info, google maps as often as I like.

    I use approx 5-6Mb most days, sometimes a little more.
    I feel totally liberated with this freedom.

    as for streaming, well I can see their problem, a few people will screw it up for everyone else.
    I have a vast music collection on my card - no need to stream
    I have a Few films for if I'm bored - no need to stream
    and FB reader with any amount of books.

    I don't feel screwed, I feel liberated.
    My Provider allows me 1Gb per month and this is more than enough with plenty left over for emergencies.
    My friend has 500Mb per month and never gets that used up either.
