    Thanks

    On Mates Rates, Everyone and Text Appeal its 7.50 per mb. This was changed
    on 1st May from 20 per mb.

    Depending on how often you use data, a dual SIM with an Easymobile SIM
    could be worth considering at 3 Mb. Or a Virgin at 5 Mb fixed for
    UK and abroad. Both use T Mobile network so you shouldn't need to
    unlock.

    Not true! Some Virgin phones won't take T-Mobile SIMs. The SIM locking
    can (and frequently is!) not just done on network for the virtual networks!

    Anyway nothing here seems to beat having an unlocked phone and an Orange
    PAYG SIM to use on their 1/unlimited until midnight GPRS offer!

    The question is not about whether a T-mobile sim will work in a Virgin
    phone (it probably won't); it is about whether a Virgin sim will work
    in a T-mobile phone (it probably will).

    Yes it is rather, but then I believe Voda and O2 payg is also 7.50 Mb
    and neither work on a Tmobile locked phone.

    It depends on usage really and for roaming it gets even scarier. Orange
    and Easy are 3 Mb in UK but get hefty if abroad. Virgin is flat rate
    at 5 UK and abroad which is one reason why I have a SIM, you should
    set up direct debit for roaming with Virgin so you don't get caught
    out. And a Virgin and Easy SIM will drop into a Tmobile phone.

    Orange and Easy have rate of 3 Mb in UK a reason why I have both SIMs
    (OK I got the Easy one for my XDA cos they gave 10 credit on a 1
    SIM). Orange is better in my opinion as Easy have a minimum use policy
    of 5 in 3 months and you can get the 4 for 4Mb month or 1 until
    midnight 'unlimited' usage with Orange should you need that amount.
    Prob is an Orange SIM won't drop into a Tmobile phone.

    There are solutions a plenty, depends if you can be bothered swapping
    SIMs or getting a dual SIM device some of which require you to crop the
    original SIM etc.

    One solution is to unlock the T mobile phone and drop in a dual SIM
    with a Tmobile for voice at either the Mates Rates or 12p flat rate and
    Orange for data. Then also keep handy a Voda SIM for Stop the Clock and
    Passport and a Virgin SIM for roaming GPRS

    Another is to just drop in an Easy SIM 15p flat rate and 3 Mb GPRS,
    nice and simple you win some you lose some.

    Whoops

    Forgot to add that if you want to email then life is also simpler with
    an Orange SIM than Easy. You can send email through the Orange SMTP
    server but Easy do not offer that facility, you will have to find your
    own SMTP that will allow connection.

    With Virgin set up an email account at Virgin.net so that you can use
    their SMTP server.

    As I said depends on how easy you want things, if you want it simple it
    costs you more, if you are willing to juggle then you can save quite a
    bit.

    I have 5 SIMs and routinely juggle between 4 SIMs on my SE K700i and
    XDA but then it is now second nature to me and have very low bills.
    Last month I went mad and used about 300 minutes voice and 1.5Mb of
    data at a cost of 5.78. At the extremes I save up to 150% on GPRS,
    75% on crossnet calls and on my main voice SIM get 50 minutes a month
    for free (the old Cellnet Pay Up Front For Life). With my Voda SIM on
    Stop the Clock I can talk for an hour for 15p and if abroad I can take
    an incoming call on Passport of up to an hour for 75p, saving about
    18 to 36 depending where I am. I give out a YAC.com number to all
    business contacts so tha I can manage how my calls are managed. If
    abroad I buy a local SIM that I use for local calls and GPRS (sometimes
    the Virgin is cheaper for GPRS) and Voda for Passport.

    Regards
