    Froyo 2.2 - Which Network Providers Support & Mobile Tarriff Question?

    Hi everyone,

    what network providers have rolled out the Froyo 2.2 update for Android phones, am I right in thinking its only Orange that havn't put it out there yet?

    Also, looking at tariffs for the HTC Desire, Orange offer an Unlimited Web & Email and T Mobile an Unlimited Web. I presume I could never read my mail on my phone if I went for the T Mobile option without extra charges? As Froyo 2.2 offers Wifi Tethering, if I hooked my laptop up to my phones hotspot I take it I could view email on there no problem as I am only using the 'web' connection from my phone? I think thats right and feel slightly daft for having to ask. Thinking of maybe getting a Samsung Galaxy Tab to hook up and use for mail and word processing etc when travelling.

    Cheers

    I dont think there is such a thing as unlimited anymore. Most providers have a fair use policy of 512mb - 1gb a month. Im 2.2 on Vodafone.

    Check out Virginmedia, I have HD2 but running Froyo 2.2, they do have HTC Desire most likely to be unlocked as well, and the internet is really unlimited!

    Just had a look at this, free over 24 months handset costs £149.99 over 18 months. Dont really want to be tied into a 2 year contract but its having the £149.99 upfront and ready. Anyone got any experience of turning the Desire into a mifi?

    I went with, I am leaving you Vodafone because you wont do me the phone I want for the price I want. They then decided to offer me an HTC Desire for £17.50 a month. So I stayed with them.

    take a look at Mobile Phone Offers On Orange, O2, 3, T Mobile And Vodafone - e2save.com - Mobile Phones these are new contracts, use the price on there to get a better deal from your existing provider.

    They offered me the Desire at that same price but I really wanted the Galaxy S.

    The original deal they offered me on the Galaxy was £22.50 pm but as it was out of stock yesterday he could do it for £20.

    I am on t-mobile uk and it is unlimited, well up to 3gb but I have never got up to that and its always downloading apps etc. If your email is web based than its ok under the web contract. I have a friend that goes over the 3mb and he has not been told to reduce his usage.
