    Hi,

    I'm a little confused about charging for web n walk on a package with flext.

    Is there an inclusive allowance or do you pay for all your web access? I
    know you get a flexible call/txt allowance.

    thanks,

    sky.

    There is no allowance on flext, apart from possibly a free trial, you need to
    buy web'n'walk as an additional package if you want to use lots of data.

    That is correct, I pay 12 (ish) on top of my Flext Package and get (fair use) 3GB a
    month and can use my phone as a modem and streaming media, 6music at work is great

    Think of it as Flext with Web'n'Walk added on separately. Your Flext
    balance is used to pay for calls, texts etc - and the Web'n'Walk
    provides unlimited (technically fair usage policy of 1GB per month I
    think) web and email on your handset. Using your handset as a modem for
    your laptop is not allowed - higher levels of Web'n'Walk support this.

    Hope that helps,

    D

    That's the PAYG version of Web'n'Walk. You don't get that option on
    contract. Similar to Orange's 1 per day PAYG-only data bundle.

    Ah...but....

    If you're going to use up some call/text allowance in addition to data
    then maybe their 7.50/month SIM only contract with no minimum term
    would be beneficial for your needs as the 1 WnW cap applies to that also.

    Yes you do. From

    It's also 0.73p/KB normal data usage so you reach 1 with just 137KB.
    Therefore if you think you'll do that more than 7 days a month, the
    7.50 fixed charge makes a lot more sense

    Ah...but...in the T&Cs

    "T-Mobile may contact customers who exceed 40MB of data and ask them to
    reduce their usage. If data usage is not reduced, notice may be given,
    after which network protection controls may be applied. Not to be used
    for other activities (including but not limited to) : modem access for
    computers, internet based video/audio streaming services, peer to peer
    file sharing, internet based video downloads, internet phone calls and
    instant messaging."

    This looked really good until I saw the clauses. The 40 meg limit is
    pretty fair, but why not Internet messaging. This is unreasonable, they
    are just protecting their text profits. Any body manage to get away with
    IM on this package?

    MSN works, I've used it a fair bit myself.

    Very good point.

    I notice that it only (automatically) applies to pay monthly customers
    who joined since December 2006, hence I wasn't aware of that. Nice to
    see though that it's across the board now - better than many other
    networks plans.

    Look at web'n'walk plus, it removes all of these restrictions (other than VOIP) for
    which there is another option.
