    I don't know if it will affect your calculations but T-Mobile are making
    changes to their tariffs from the 1st July

    The only change is a 1 minute minimum charge per call - I'd (by chance!)
    factored this into my above calculations.

    The last car kit i went for was a Stingray Bluetooth one,
    works on any Bluetooth phone.
    Then it's future proof.

    Steve: I understand the logic, but I have a 'hard wired' car kit already
    installed in my car (I've never used Bluetooth).

    If I moved over to 3 PAYG I'd have to buy a new phone and either a new
    fitting kit or a Bluetooth adapter. I think that these additional costs
    wouldn't make it worthwhile choosing three over T Mobile or Tesco.
