    Don't believe they change anything on the phone i.e. the phone doesn't
    stop working for a bit during the changeover; no new settings to receive
    etc.

    I'd just try using your phone as a modem right now (before upgrading).
    For web browsing you'd probably be okay - unless they look at the
    browser ID string to see if you are using a phone based browser. Other
    services, such as file sharing or IM probably will be detected and blocked.

    The worst that can happen is that they phone you up - and then you just
    say you wanted to see how easy it was to connect the PC to the phone to
    the internet before committing to an extra fiver a month. :-)

    Your fair use allowance also goes from 1GB to 3GB.

    I changed over from Web n Walk to Web n Walk Pro (no longer available) a
    while ago. The Web n Walk tariff was billed a month in advance but Pro
    was activated immediately. As a result the two were active together for
    one month, YMMV.

    Was Web n Walk part of the contract or did you add it separately? I've
    heard of some people having problems if it is part of the contract
    because it is treated as a change of tariff.

    If it was added separately you can make the change online if you are
    registered with "My T-mobile".

    I had no problem adding "plus" to my flext/w&w tariff, although the
    website was so broken I had to get customer services to do it for me.
