Finally in the advanced world ...


May 17, 2010
Hi All,

I just got my first Android phone (courtesy of my bro in the US giving me his G1 as he now has a Nexus!)

Can anyone tell me what the best SIM only plan is in the UK for only doing data ... I'm not too bothered about call costs ... I just want the cheapest UK data plan that works for a phone like the G1 ...

T-Mob (UK) seem to do a 10 quid a month deal which will give me 1Gb ... is this too little in your experience ?
Do I need something with more data allowance ?
What do you all use ?

Also is there a way to force the phone to use WiFi when I am at home and in range of my network for data traffic ??? I put a 3G pay and go O2 sim in and managed to use 10 quid of data in about 12 hours when the phone was showing it was using WiFi ... do some apps still sync on 3G in the background or does it drop the WiFi when it goes turns the screen off ???

Help and advice appreciated!
