    Well you can browse the internet as much as you want, but if you download things like email or videos through other apps, then you have to pay extra. AFAIK

    If you are an iPhone customer with OS3.0 or above, text the word MMS to 1010 to get MMS working!

    When you put your O2 SIM in a phone that doesn't have the O2 settings, we automatically send you them so that you can send picture messages and use internet on your mobile. Please save and activate them if asked. If you have any problems with the settings, try switching your mobile on and off.

    If you need to get settings again, text ACTIVE to 2020.

    Please note: O2 cannot be held responsible for any lost or changed settings that occur from this configuration process.

    Huawei Ascend G300 - 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, 4" screen, 5MP camera w/flash and it's guaranteed to get Ice Cream Sandwich and all for £100.

    Better than the Monte Carlo and San Francisco.

    Unlock it and then put a giffgaff sim in and all should be good!

    Lol thanks but the buying of the phone is past now, looking for technical support.

    Please excuse my lack of competence with this... Which one do i want/need? I already have the mobile web APN as i use it all the time for mobile data which works fine.
