    Exactly the reason I didn't upgrade with 02,them being shady about data put me right off and this cements that I made the correct decision in switching.

    It seems the networks are starting to think that if people need the data plan more and more (with these latest capable phones) that they will also be willing to pay for it.

    It will serve them right if they lose all their customers to T Mobile. I'm so pleased I'm on a 3GB data plan.

    I can't imagine they'd be allowed to change your existing contract in that way.

    What I'd like to know is what happens when you reach the limit in a month. I think the FUP concept has been twisted against the consumer more recently. Correct me if I'm wrong but if you're on the 500mB Three contract and you reach the limit you get cut off yes? Well that's not a FUP, that's just a simple limit.

    Has anybody actually monitored their net usage? Because I use the internet a lot on my Desire as well as having it auto-sync with Facebook/Twitter/Email/Weather and I haven't used more than ~350MB in a month.

    Would probably be double that if I didn't have WiFi at home though!

    That's what I am saying there is no Smartphone option. Been there a hundred times looking at these tariffs but I just don't get to choose the smartphone option. :thinking:
