Try emailing them for an answer as to how unlimited is the 'unlimited internet' on T-Mob....still waiting for a reply for that simple question from last week. The lack of any response puts me right off.
#2
Been trying to buy it for the last two days but kept rejecting my card saying that am address is not valid! Stupid website!!
#3
Tempted but I've had problems with tomb customer services before. They all tell you different things and leave you ultimately frustrated and more confused than when you started.
#4
If ordered direct off T-mobile unlimited internet is 3Gb for smartphones.

Not sure you'd get that unless you went direct to them though!

They ought to be fined for misleading statements like "unlimited" . I'm sure all providers do it, surely false and misleading advertising, sign up for unlimited, get 500MB or the like.

Sometimes its the address, or you need more than £1.01 in account as they take it out and put it back later to confirm it is an authentic account. Check address on the bills against your postal address as supplied by the post office

Pay monthly plans which include internet on your phone on an Android phone
You'll get internet on your phone Plus included if you join us on a pay monthly plan with an Android phone in a T-Mobile store, over the phone or via our website, t-mobile.co.uk. You'll need internet coverage, check it at t-mobile.co.uk/streetcheck. Remember that you can only use your internet on your phone Plus Booster in the UK and you can't use your phone as a modem or use Internet on your phone Plus for peer to peer file sharing, or making internet phone calls. *Internet on your phone Plus comes with a fair use policy of 3GB a month. We'll monitor how much you send and receive each calendar month so that we can protect our network for all our internet on your customers. If you use more than your fair use policy amount, we won't charge you any more, but we may restrict how you can use your plan, depending on how often you go over your amount and by how much.


Taken from the T-Mobile website, I underlined a few words that I dont believe were there when I was toying with the Desire several months back. Looks like 3GB buying direct and going by the underlined 1GB if through a 3rd party...
banned#10
as mentioned above it's 1gb(speed is also limited from whag I've read) from 3rd party, but from reading on another forum if you phone up and mention you have an android phone they'll 'upgrade' it to full speed 3gb(you may have to ring up a few times as may get cs person saying it's not possible).

Good price. It will be interesting to see how these phones compare with Samsung Galaxy S.

Regarding T-Mobile, it IS unlimited. You get 1gb (or 3GB in the case of Android phones bought off them) at high speed, and anything on top of that is still free but at lower speeds. i.e. you'll never get charged for mobile internet. i.e. UNLIMITED.

Lots of broadband providers offer 'unlimited' internet and they aren't misleading, you're just understanding it incorrectly. They are offering unlimited internet, meaning you can use it as much as you want, it's always on. Lots of broadband providers then add in bandwidth limits which cut your speed down. You are still getting the internet in unlimited quantities, it's just slowed down.

T-Mobile are doing the same here. THey're offering you unlimited internet, you can use it as much as you like but if you go over 3GB your speed will be cut down. It's still an unlimited supply of the internet.

The reason the networks use the term 'unlimited' is because the don't charge you if you go over the fair usage policy, but if you continue to breach the fair use policy then they can charge you!

I think the deals are pretty good considering what you used to get a few years ago 200 minutes and 500 text used to cost around £30.00 per month and that didn't include any internet usage.

I haven't seen reviews for these new desire models, but the original desire is absolutely fantastic. Hands down the best phone money can buy, in my opinion. These phones are brand new, so to be able to get them on a fairly reasonable 18 month contract just seems superb.

Plus, T-mobile generally have the fairst deals on internet (ignoring those bastardos at 3) , so it's a real hot vote from me.

The only thing I'm not sure about is the retailer ' mobilephonesdirect'. No experience with them, to date.

is there anyway they can find out if you use your phone as a modem?

*definitely

Depending on your current dumbphone, you might find the lower battery life a downside. It's the drawback to all these smartphones.

That depends on the network. I bought the Tesco unlimited sim deal (30 day contract) and racked up £300 (£4/mb) bill for going over about 70mb of the 500mb Fair useage policy. This was the first time it went over in the 6 months i've had it. Just paid last week :(

This deal looks good, especially if T-Mobile dont charge for going over the FUP.
I'm VERY tempted by this deal, but want to see Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 series due to come out on the 11th of october.

is the desire hd better than the basic desire?


Depends what you use it for, the camera is better and it has updated HTC sense generally a little better all round. Only downside I can see is that the bigger screen will drain the battery faster, the phone is a bit larger and a bit more expensive. I still don't regret buying the original, but still 18 months to go on the contract so I'm sure there will be something I want more out by then.
#28
HTC Desire or the Samsung Galaxy ?? The wife has the HTC Legend and I like it but I also like the look of the Samsung...so which do people prefer??
#29
^ the reason i ask is that my t mobile contract is up. asked retentions for a desire and they sad cheapest was £30 but they could do a desire hd for £18 per month as "the desire is better than the hd".......so i'm lost!!!

The Android 2.2 (Froyo) update arrived for T-Mobile locked Desires yesterday. I've updated mine and USB tethering and the Wifi hotspot functionality are available. I assume T-Mobile would have locked these options if you weren't allowed to use them. I think as long as you don't abuse it (e.g. doing large downloads) but keep it for email and normal browsing they you'll be OK.

It would have been nice as a backup on Tuesday morning when my cable internet went down and Virginmedia couldn't get an engineer to visit until Friday. Fortunately my connection did come back later in the day, but I was getting the shakes by then.;)

I still think it's a bit of a mess how HTC release phones. They need to have a proper strategy. Whether they like it or not this is seen as an upgraded Desire a mere 6 months after release! That's terrible. At least Apple have one clear new phone release each year, not a bunch of different operating systems, some updated some not, some with different Sense versions, some getting updates via networks others not etc HTC support leaves a bit to be Desired, look at Hero/Magic owners and their non-updated os (which, besides the interface and speed, affects app functionality on the market). That's the only bad thing I see about this company.

I can see HTC in 6-10 months ditching support for this in favour of their new phone whilst 'loyal' customers are stuck on their 24m contracts. The Legend and Wildfire won't be getting any updates at the moment-- barely 6 months old. Google need to sort their act out too it's like they have a version of the os every couple of months.

£25 a month can be had by paying £69 up front (£30 Quidco though). 600 mins, 500 text, Unlimited internet. Enough for most ppl.

Still over £300 a year though.

It's 3GB on T-Mobile. Which in my book means its LIMITED to 3GB, ergo ... not UNlimited

like most companies unlimited really did mean unlimited but that was when 3gb was for usage on gprs not hsdpa, so now it doesnt look as much, and I agree that all companies should say the limit rather than unlimited.


Especially with the likes of Vodafone about to start charging £5 / 500MB when going over the account data limit.

The Desire HD and Galaxy S are WAY bigger than the Legend. Go play with them in person before buying I'd say. Most people here haven't seen a Desire HD in person yet.
