I ended up getting an N73 on eBay for 50 to tide me over until the N85 becomes available on more networks and hopefully comes down in price. I'm now wondering if I should add a bluetooth GPS. The battery life is like night and day compared to my N95

I just looked at that deal - it says Unlimited Vodafone Mobile Internet, so does that mean you can surf any area of the internet or just the Vodafone area? i.e. yahoo, msn etc.

Also at the bottom of that tariff, it still says "Web Browsing & Sending Data 1 for 15MB per day ", so it's either unlimited or it isn't. Total confusion!

Vodafone do 2 internet options. The first is the 1 for 15mb per day, which is what they charge if you are on contract and dont have the data bundle. If you use anything under 15mb, you get charged 1 for that day. But if you go over the 15mb, you get charged per mb.

The data package Vodafone do is branded as unlimited, and has a FUP of 500mb.

Thats either included in the contract, or can be added as an extra. Either 7.50 per month, or 5 per month if you have it for the rest of your contract.

If I were you Id ring MPD and ask whats what with that deal, as I wouldnt want it without the data package.

I can confirm that this is full internet. Checked on my bill online, and all my internet usage is marked as free/included.

Im really starting to get hacked off with this 'unlimited' term and FUP's. I don't have an issue with a FUP when something is called unlimited, but it cant be both.

Couldn't agree more. It's either unlimited or it's not, simple really. Why bother to say unlimited then stick that * where you have to read 'fair usage policy applies'.
