Bringing the iphone 3g to Amsterdam

so i am leaving from work straight to go off on a long weekend break in amsterdam in a couple weeks' time.

what i am wondering is ... whether i should bring the (work) iphone 3g with me.
i hear the charges are exorbitant and just want to find out more eg. how to avoid the excess. i guess the only reason for me to bring it would just be using the internet/check emails/maps not for calls as i can have another mobile with the usual roaming rates.

if i left it on wifi and not 3g mode in the netherlands, would that only depend on free wifi spots which might not be too many - unless someone's been there. i can do with some iphone advice.

if they are a bit too much i might leave the phone at home tbh, and set the voicemail to 'pls do not leave me a message, from dateA to dateB' whilst i am away.

thanks in advance.


taking ?

find out the charges from their website and then decide . .

bring back some mushrooms


I wouldn't take it with... if it was me... its usually internet abroad that is the most expensive.. if you can trust that you can switch data off and just use wifi then why not... but on my touch HD it enables itself!!! I have another phone that i will take instead!


bring back some mushrooms

"Using iPhone abroad

All Pay Monthly tariffs for iPhone include International Traveller Service so you can enjoy up to 80% discount on calls and texts made whilst abroad.

ITS for W. Europe, EU
Calling to UK from Europe, EU countries 35p
Receiving a call 18p

For calls made abroad minimum charge is one minute, then charged in 15-second increments, rounded up to the nearest penny.

Downloading 1MB of data in an EU country will cost £3. We recommend that if you love using your iPhone for surfing the internet/ checking your emails in the UK and want to use it frequently when you are abroad that you add one of our Data Abroad Bolt Ons.

The iPhone 3G has data roaming switched off to avoid, what could be a nasty surprise when you come back from your travels.

[COLOR="purple"]ok got that[/COLOR]

Data Roaming Bolt Ons

If you are planning a holiday or travelling on business, why not add Data Roaming Bolt Ons. Depending on your planned data usage abroad, you can select from the following options:
Data Abroad 10: £20 per month for 10MB of data
Data Abroad 50: £50 per month for 50MB of data

Data usage whilst roaming not included with unlimited Web Bolt On. "

[COLOR="purple"]the question is how much is 10 mb. we're away for 4 nights.
bought the phone in november, it shows 65.5 mb sent, nearly 700mb received OOPS[/COLOR]

Our Pay Monthly tariffs for iPhone include the unlimited data and Wi-Fi Bolt Ons.

In order to take advantage of The Cloud network with O2 (7,500 hotspots in UK) you will need to subscribe to the Wi-Fi Unlimited Bolt On which is available for £7.50 per month or as a promotional Bolt On with any 600+ minute tariff (excluding 12 months).


So my conclusion is not to bring the iphone with me ...

did a google ...

"[COLOR="DarkRed"] I attended a court ruled drug class and learned that marijuana has a halflife in your system. How long it takes to leave your system depends on how much you smoke. But the time maxes out at around 45 days. One smoking session for someone with a clean system takes about 3-4 days to be clean. Smoke 2 days later and then have to wait about a week, and so on. The time it will take roughly doubles every time you smoke until it maxes at about 45 days to be clean. So if you are maxed out and you wait about 2 weeks and then smoke again, you're basically back to 45 days.

This also depends on the test. Most job drug tests only test down to about 100 nanograms, which isn't dead accurate but will pick up if you are a smoker obviously. Court-appointed tests can test anywhere down to 10-20 nanograms, which is very accurate, and can also detect high levels of water, and any other drug test liquids. You can not fool those tests, and drinking water and tea does nothing for getting weed out of your system at all. The ONLY way to get it out is time, because it is in your blood.
Here is more input from other contributors:

Marijuana can be detected in urine for nearly a week after smoking. Blood tests can be more accurate, and it might take a month to be totally clear. Hair tests show every drug ever taken when that hair was growing - this is why you see so many drug addicts with shaved heads or buzz cuts, by the way. Also by the way: taking laxatives and drinking wacky chemicals won't "cheat" a drug test. It will just make you go to the bathroom![/COLOR]"

drats now i feel like a smoke -- just cig. had a craving the last two days but havent succumbed yet. it's to do with the rains and cold air atmospheric.
