Just had a look at threeâ€™s site they selling their Skype S2 phone for Â£39.99, I think itâ€™s a great value as we can use as a skype with out toping up. Itâ€™s not bad looking and have HSDPA connection etc.. I been told itâ€™s better than the 3â€™s INQ1 phones .
I might buy it not sure
what a nice network, I spoke to them about getting a PAC code, not a single sales pitch, gave me the PAC code their and then. Shame 3 is going to buy them. Three is the worse network to get out of they will try every thing to stop u from leaving.
I got my self a Nokia 1200 as my 2nd pay as you go phone.very small unlocked to any network, 7 hour talk time simple to use just pick dial. Cheap only paid Â£9 come with few good games and it have a LED flash light. Itâ€™s have a D pad all the features can be access in one click.
I like this little phone only going to use it when I reach my allowance on my O2 blackberry, they charge lot of money (40p/min) if I pass my voice limit .I got my self a ASDA mobile sim just 8p for voice call and 4 p for text message no monthly charges. Itâ€™s works out perfect for me as if I don\’t go over the limit I can use the credit for next month as long as I keep calling/texting some one every three months lines should be ok.
I guess simple pay as you is the way to go now days. as yearly contracts are very confusing and long some of them are 24months contracts. phones are like Â£400 on payG but on contract it could be free but end up paying more than Â£1000s for it. I guess if u use it a lot then worth it.
What a crapy O2 softwareÂ which will spoilÂ all your wifiÂ connections home page and proxy setting etc. I like to keep things simple
so here is the setting after connecting the sim card to the modem just plug it in let windows install it asÂ a modem
go to network connections click create new connections give a name eg O2 PayGÂ select the correct usb modem O2â€™s case HUAWEI mobile connect 3G modem
on the number column type :-Â *99#
user name put O2web
password just password
click finish,Â make sure don\’t make it a default connection (unless you want that to be)
then open your browserÂ type https://mobilebroadbandaccess.o2.co.uk/index/products enter the phone no of the sim (which will be on the sticker of the sim card)Â buy the credit and enjoy.
This setting will work with linux macs and any ver of windows (if their is driver support)
