Are there any good ADSL combined with mobile phone deals out there?

    We have two ADSL connections (one home phone line, one business line),
    one is currently bundled with the BT business line rental and overall
    for ADSL + line rental + phone costs it's giving us a pretty good
    deal.

    However the other ADSL connection is probably relatively expensive for
    what it is (it's an Entanet reseller) and, as we could well do with
    changing our mobile phone deals (currently Virgin Mobile PAYGO) as
    well I'm wondering if there are any combined packages out there that
    could be good for us.

    So, are there any offers of ADSL and mobile phone(s) as a bundle which
    offer good value? We don't need anything very exotic, one mobile
    phone is a moderate user with a little data, the other is very low
    usage. The ADSL sometimes (but quite rarely) bumps on the 30GB/month
    (I think) limit.

    My ISP is Be Unlimited for Broadband up to 24Mb and anytime phone, usual
    about £32 for us a month.
    They are part of O2 so as they are a mobile phone company maybe check them
    out.

    As David points out (but his broken message quoting precludes me from
    replying to), O2 broadband is basically the same offering as Be which,
    despite a few recent hiccups, I regard quite highly. You get a discount
    if you have a contract mobile and go with them. Reasonable support
    reputation.

    Orange do free broadband lite (severely limited quota) for contract
    mobile customers over a certain spend or full fat at a reduced price.

    it's a ba-na-na . . . .


    Fred if you got problems with the lack of Indicator's on Windows Live Mail
    you should take that up with MicroSoft.
    I am aware of this limitation thus I leave the signature of the previous
    post in so it can be clearly seen where I start.

    Any way Customer Service of Be is separate to O2 and with Be is first class.

    Your quoting of the sig is thoughtful and appreciated as a separator but
    it has the unfortunate side effect of deleting all of your message in
    any reply made from an RFC compliant news reader, because they will
    automatically delete anything after a sig separator ie
    <dash><dash><space><CR> (that is its purpose).

    This message is an example of that as your reply has been removed.

    If you feel so inclined, deleting one of the dashes or the space after
    the 2 dashes in the sig you are quoting would mean that others can
    reliably quote your articles in replies.

    David, what I see on your message is this:

    (1) Fred's message, in black.
    (2) Fred's signature, in grey. This is as usual completely
    uninteresting to me, so I don't read it.

    That's all.

    <fx pause for thought>

    Didn't David add anything to this message he posted back? Oh look, the
    signature is bigger than the last post... David's made it bigger...

    MS are well known for not having compliant newsgroup code. That's one
    of the major causes of top-posting. After all, everyone should be using
    Outlook shouldn't they?

    And that is why by default I hide messages produced in WLM v15 (but not
    v14), if someone else replies and the original looks interesting, I may
    unhide it.

  8. Perhaps Fred is not a Microsoft customer — but *you* are. So it would be
    polite if rather than posting known-broken messages with known-broken
    software, you would either take it up *yourself* with your supplier, or
    perhaps switch to something that isn't so catastrophically broken and
    unsupported.

    It should also be possible for you to manually correct the problem by
    prefixing each line with '> ' as appropriate — or just deleting the
    lines that you don't need to repeat. Surely it wouldn't take you long to
    just *delete* all of the citation before you type your response? It's
    right there in the parent message if anyone really needed to see it.

    Microsoft Outlook Express is widely regarded as unfit for purpose as a
    newsreader, and it was difficult to envisage a worse one.
    But they did managed it, and called it Windows Live Mail.

    Let me put it this way. the nearest thing to a word processor that is
    bundled with Windows is called Wordpad, but I suspect you are not
    using that to write letters etc. You probebly downloaded a free full
    featured package like Writer in Open Office, or maybe you paid for
    Microsoft Office.

    It's the same with Usenet, there is no shortage of free newsreaders,
    Mozilla Thunderbird is popular, although I just use it for email,
    preferring Foete Agent for Usenet.

    Hi,
    Word Processing and Spread sheets I use Lotus, because when I worked that is
    what I learnt there and at that time when I got my first computer at home it
    also had Lotus Suite with it.
    That was a many years back and a few computers back too, much to my surprise
    it works still today on this Windows 7 64 bit computer.
    Of course I do not do many letters in these days of e-mail and that is done
    by this WLM I use for NG's,
    Regards
    David
