Hey!
I am really confused about the whole "unlimited mobile internet" and its actual limits.
I am thinking of getting a Nokia N900, and internet would be the most important function for me but i just dont know what to expect from the O2 and other networks.
What i actually want to do is:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Watch about 1 hour 30 minutes of video from www.watchxonline.com
( Each Day)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Browse the internet for about 2 hours ( Normal PC Websites, not the tiny mobile ones )
( Each Day )
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Use instant messaging (MSN,Skype) for the most of the day
( Each Day )
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Download MP3/Screensavers,Games,Themes,Applications of my phone
( Few times a week)
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Download about 3 AVI format movies (1gb each)
( A Week )
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Use Applications/Games which require internet.
( Daily )
---------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Use MSN/Skype to make online calls/video chats.
( Few Times a Week )
---------------------------------------------------------------------


Could you explain if I would be OK to do all that on O2/Vodafone/T-Mobile or other networks (Pay MONTHLY, "Unlimited" Internet)


Thank you

To do all that your best off on 3UK. They offer the best in terms of giga bytes on offer and also offer free Skype too and messaging. The other networks are not really unlimited in a sense but i don't really want to go into that argument again. Check out 3UK.

Yeah... i seen the other treads and all the agruments about the "unlimited" net

Thanks Again!

P.S. Congratulations on your 500th post

My 500th post i now have over 4,000 posts Yeah the 3 network seems to offer more in terms of unlimited than the others with internet. Though even with 3 you still might be hard pressed to download things at 1 giga byte per item. They do offer alot but even they still have limits

Suppose it would be better to use WiFi for heavy downloading, it's what most people in my country do, as we also have these "unlimited" dataplans with limits

Posted by Chill_Pill
Well they dont offer N900 on 3UK I hope they will after 4 months because thats when my contract ends.
Im not sure what WIFI really is.. could you explain it in more detail and maybe write down how to use it?
Thanks!

3 UK do have the largest data limit, its around 1gb a month, you would never be able to do all that on any mobile data plan, you probley use about 5gb a week no network will allow you to use that much, you would be better off with proper broadband and a wifi router.

Posted by Chill_Pill
Hmmm such a shame...
Well N900 has WiFi, could i use that to connect it to my Wanadoo Livebox at home and use my PC's internet?


Why do they even bother saying its unlimited internet...


EDIT:
I found something else aswell...

Number1? What do you think? Could it be true?

Do you think that T-Mobile deal with (4gb Internet) is real?

You didn't say where you would be when doing this amount of downloading. If it is mostly at home then use the N900 wifi on the wanadoo livebox. If it is out and about then forget the huge downloads, MSN and facebook should be fine, videos need a good 3G connection.

That link you posted is old, it is for mobile phones direct and they don't appear to sell the N900 (directly) anymore. I couldn't find anything on their website about how unlimited the unlimited internet is.

according to my calculations youd need 50gb or more per month to fulfill that little lot of requirements. if internet is your only requirement. tmob payngo will give you the most mb,s. they offer (last time i looked) a 6 month web bolt on for 20gb. fair usage (last timed i phned and enquired)of 3gb per month. if u use 3 sims . (changing one to the other when u reach ya monthly allowance) youl get 9 to 10mb per month for 10quid ish per month.

Thank you so much everyone! You've been more than helpful!
Well I will download and watch movies at home for most of the time so I should be fine with WiFi
Thank you again! )

you'll need a f***ing ipad to do that all portably! or at least an iphone! but 3 uk is the best for cheap prices for a good amount of net usage.
