    Do you guys use VPN and if so, do you have it set up on your phone? Also why do you use it? Just curious.

    Only ever used it to get access to blocked sites (e.g. Youtube at school, and this forum when I was on Orange)

    You probably can't setup a VPN on a public computer, like at a library, unless you've got administrator access. And if they've done the job correctly, public computers should be locked down, really for security and preventing access to blocked sites and services.

    As for VPN on your phone, I found Droid VPN to be as good as any. I need a VPN because I'm on China.

    I did, for online baniking, Then I realised that I didn't actually need the facility on my mobile. :eek:

    All you needed to do was call CS on 150 and ask for the "parental controls" to be disabled. Thanks to our government, every web forum is considered unsuitable for minors. :(
