    The 90 days of 150MB of internet, 3to3 and SMS are of more use to me

    Seems like a fair average, but probably depends on what sort of music
    you like.
    It'll be pushed up by a symphony, and down by a ringtone.
    Only you know how realistic that average will be for your musical
    preference.
    That depends on what you use it for - there are enough people using
    email to send vids or music as attachments to push the average way up.
    Maybe you don't know everywhere you will use it, but there is likely
    to be at least one place where you NEED it to work, or it's a wasted
    purchase. That would be the place you'd give the postcode for.

    4 minutes, 32MB on average? Even a 320Kbps constant bitrate MP3 won't be
    that big for that long. Perhaps a FLAC encoded track might be.
    Uncompressed 16-bit stereo WAV will be about 40MB for 4 mins.

  7. They come with a SIM. I don't think you can get them SIM only. Normally
    the SIMs would be all over eBay, but the only ones I can find there are
    touting the amazing 1 pound for 15MB (yes 'a generous 15 megabyte') tariff.

    Bit of a pain given more and more phones and laptops are coming with
    built-in HSDPA.

    And I've just run a little test to see what amount of browsing you can do
    for 150MB (Mbytes). Using NetStatLive from AnalogX, it suggests that after a
    bit of surfing (BBC, Wiki, Google, eBuyer, play.com, and a few forums), I'd
    downloaded 12.4MB in 34 minutes. That's about 365kB/minute. So your 150MB
    would last for about 7 hours' surfing! Then again, if you're googling for
    pr0no, this figure will be less (but you probably only need 10 minutes of
    surfing if that's what you're doing ;-)
