Yep,my first bil was over 60,didnt think email browsing would use so much data,charge max of 1 a day,so if you browse the net and read emails every day thats a poss 30 extra a month on top of your bill,in that case the 7.50 bolt on for unlimited downloads is a very good idea......

Well, after initially being refused because I was on a lower than 600 minutes contract, I was given it when I informed them that I had a 750 minute contract.

It will start from next billing date.

Mind you, I had to give up my long weekend free calls bolt on as you can only have one free bolt on.

It won't affect me as I never get anywhere near the 750 min limit anyway.


Can I just ask for confirmation that anything web wise will be free?

IE: if I am using the sat nav part of my N95 and I allow it to connect, I assume I won't be billed if I have the free unlimited web bolt on?

I didn't know I could have a free bolt on (I have a £35 a month contract 600mins 1000 Unlimited texts). Phoned up and now have "unlimted" (200mb) Web downloads starting from next month!!!

Im now not restricted to using the Wireless at my house or work and can do MSN and browsing anywhere!!! =D

Thank you!!!

Are you sure it's still only 200Mb? It should be truly unlimited now......

Definatly 200mb. He said to me its 200mb before I even asked. And I said on the O2 website it says unlimited and his reply was that

"If you use the internet on your handset it will be quite hard to reach the 200mb. But if you connect your PC to your phone to go on the internet there is a good chance you can go over that", thats what he said to me today.

Thanks for posting this, i'm gonna ring up tomorrow and get it added to my account
If it is 200Mb limit then they really shouldn't call it unlimited, or at least put that figure in the terms&conditions!

It is unlimited as long as its used only on your phone,if you connect your pc to the web through your phone then its not valid and they can cancell the bolt on.....

I think you'll find those classic words..."Subject to fair use policy" somewhere in the terms and conditions

Oh great. They can do that, but they weren't willing to try and save me when I threatened to leave cos I wanted IMAP on a PAYG GPRS connection. This bolt-on sounds too good to be true though. The last I checked it was a 200mb limit. Guess they changed it cos of web and walk.

Obviously the best thing to do is each month (when your texts and minutes are full again) reset your Packet Data to make sure you dont go over the 200mb limit...
