[access-uk] Re: Mobile phone network cards

Yes Mark I agree about a card over USB, that was my thought exactly.  But the 
chap in T-Mobile said USB would be better because there are so many laptops out 
there with different slots that they can't keep up with which ones to cater 
for.  He also said the cards are quicker, which you would expect.  The guy told 
me too that the cards don't support Vista, but whether that's an assumption on 
his part, or is really the case, I don't know.  People scare-monger when there 
is a new OS about.

I'm not with T-Mobile, so I'll need to get hold of a national Customer Services 
number to ring from the landline, doubtless at about 8p per minute or something 
stupid.  But I'll let you know what I find out.

  Let us know how you get on Jackie.  I am going to ring and ask about it at 
some point, as I'm with T mobile anyway.  I want to know a little more about 
the modem and sim card arrangement .  i do prefer the pcmcia card that I use on 
the vodafone network as you can fit it and leave it there.  Using a usb modem 
is just something else to have to pack and take with you everywhere.  But if 
the price is right, and all that.  

  Cheers.

  Mark, thanks ever so much for this.  I did ask in the shop if they were doing 
it on a pay-as-you-go basis, and they said no.  But I'll print off your message 
and take it down, or perhaps give their Customer Services a ring.

  Brill.

    Jackie, 

    My friend works for T mobile and he sent me the following email just 
yesterday.  T mobile are indeed starting up a pay as you go data service using 
the usb modem you described.  Worth asking in the shop about if you go back 
perhaps?

    We've now got a fantastic new addition to our range of web'n'walk mobile 
broadband services that's a first for T-Mobile in a growing market. Pay-per-day 
mobile broadband launches for the first time in the UK as T-Mobile launches 
laptop surfing for never more than £4 a day. From November 1st, we will offer 
all new and existing customers the chance to surf at ultra-high speed in 
thousands of locations without a contract - simply via a T-Mobile USB modem and 
their laptop.
    Richard Warmsley, Head of Internet on the Move, said: "We know consumers 
value the flexibility of mobile broadband, accessing the internet for all the 
reasons they love, whenever they want, wherever they are.  Now they can try 
this just £4 per day without the constraints of a fixed line.  When they are 
ready, we'll happily recommend a monthly mobile broadband plan, that gives them 
even more value at our new reduced prices.
