Iphone packages offer unlimited internet access. However, if you set a limit to 500 mb per month then that would be more than enough. It just all depends on how much you were thinking of using it.

Or, if you are not rich enough for an Iphone, Android phones are really cheap and come with data packages giving you enough data to browse the internet.

I have an android phone with a TMobile pay as you go SIM. I pay 20 for 6 months unlimited internet - I can use the phone as a mobile modem on my laptop which saves me using a dongle. I know "unlimited" has a fair use policy but I haven't exceeded it within the last year so it must be pretty high!

Its really simple Moonstar, most of them are plug and play, meaning it installs the driver software as soon as you plug the mini usb into the computer. Hit connect and there you go! The speed is not really fast enough for skype or streaming but its fine for emails, social networking and most sites that dont rely on fast downloads. Its the small connector which you plug into your phone and the port on the laptop to charge the phone or download stuff from phone to PC - give it a try!

Sounds wonderful. I need a new phone that would do this as the one I have has never heard of the internet and I am on a very old 02 contract which I paid upfront and only pay for calls the cost of which is very low because I don't use the telephone very much and never text.

Android is an operating system built by google, it is by far the most used mobile operating system in the world. There are hundreds of models that use it, most popular is the samsung galaxy range. Any mobile phone shop will be able to talk you through specific devices but most phones now a days are either android, windows, blackberry or iphone

5.15 per month, 600 minutes, 3000 texts (basically unlimited) and 1GB data (basically unlimited). Oh and you actually get customer service when you have a problem (not sure how good it is, but at least it's there lol).

Suddenly giffgaff aint so good is it raftl
