Best Mobile PAYG 3G/Data Tariff
As the title suggests.. who's the best for Data/3G - oh and coverage
Currently on O2's Text & Web, but they only offer a max of 500MB a month, which is about to be capped at 50MB per day - with 300 Free texts at £10 a month
This has been fine, but since getting my Droid, I'm finding I am regularly going over the limts and from 22nd March I'll get charged £1 per Mb if I go over 50Mb and then £3/Mb if I go over the 500Mb/month cap
I've tried reducing my data rate - email (checked hourly - max time allowed), facebook occaisionally and foursquare now and then are about the main apps I use
Might give it another month and see - and try and use the WiFi a bit more (though at work that stops emails coming down..
Mrs Gatt is also on O2 so we get the reduced call rates, and she's more concerned about this going up!
Had a look at Virgin and they do a 1GB plan for £15/month
Don't really want to go to a Contract if I can avoid it (came off it as at the time PAYG was working out better value for money..)

If you have a Blackberry (which it sounds as though unfortunately you don't) Free BlackBerry Sim Cards on T-Mobile - Get a free BlackBerry SIM card on Pay As You Go is good. You only get 100 minutes and no free texts, but you get free blackberry services and internet for six months.

Virgin are doing a similar thing with Blackberry's - though I hate the damn things and will never own one...
Really annoying that you can get special deals for iPhones and Cackberry's but not Droid's

Orange - £10 a month topup gives 500mb data not found anything about a max daily usage, 300 free texts ( i think its about that) but no minutes thus the £10 is mintues

Consider getting mifi from 3 or other provider...? can sit in your pocket and supply net for yours and other devices if required.
I think £15 gives you 3GB. £10 = 1GB.
