3 Skypephone S2 payG is only £39.99

\"3Skypephone_S2_210x225\" Just had a look at three’s site they selling their Skype S2 phone for £39.99, I think it’s a great value as we can use as a skype  with out toping up. It’s not bad looking and have HSDPA connection etc.. I been told it’s better than the 3’s INQ1 phones .

I might buy it not  sure

Nokia 1200 and asda mobile

\"nokia1200\" 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 £9 come with few good games and it have a LED flash light. It’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. It’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 £400 on payG but on contract it could be free but end up paying more than £1000s for it. I guess if u use it a lot then worth it.

Don’t use O2 mobile software. just use USB modem with dialup networking

What a crapy O2 software  which will spoil  all your wifi  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 as  a modem

go to network connections click create new connections give a name eg O2 PayG  select the correct usb modem O2’s case HUAWEI mobile connect 3G modem

on the number column type :-  *99#
user name put O2web
password just password

click finish,  make sure don\’t make it a default connection (unless you want that to be)

then open your browser  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)  buy the credit and enjoy.

This setting will work with linux macs and any ver of windows (if their is driver support)
