500 mb is loads in terms of normal web-browsing for a phone. As long as you are not downloading lots of music then it should be more than enough.

I'm always using facebook and checking e-mails etc on the phone and have never ever come anywhere close to using my 500mb allowance.

I use a mobile broadband modem on my PC every weekday for a couple of hours. There's an app that monitors useage. Even though I have a 3GB allowance, I've never gone above 500MB in a month. Obviously though if you are downloading videos and mp3s etc, it will eat away your allowance. From what you say on your phone, providing the emails dont have huge attachments, you should have no problems.

E-mail and web browsing doesn't use much data so 500MB should be fine, obviously downloading and watching videos will eat into your allowance a lot quicker.

All of the above...

and downloading 'Debbie does Dallas' racks up the data packets as well as leaving you with a twitch in one eye....not good...:thumbsup:

I'm looking at similar plans with a 500MB allowance. So how many youtube videos could you get out of 500MB?

THANKYOU!

does cost anything on top of the contract bill and does it get renewed every month with you minutes and texts?
thanks

500Mb would approximately be 2-3hrs a day on an instant messaging service e.g MSN per month. I would'nt recomend downloading music as it eats up the 500Mb almost instantly, the same with youtube, i find youtube is the worst culprit for eating up the allowance. I usually check e-mails, go on facebook for a while and google a few questions and the most i get up too in a month is around 200Mb (Y)
Hope this helped x

You have an ipad and an iphone yet you can't download porn on them while sat in a public toilet. Shame no you!
