Used for 2 hours a day, with 15 min updates, I went through 16MB in just under a month.

As an aid to avoiding costly charges building up get a copy of the superb utility from spb "GPRS Monitor" load it on to yor device and configure it. Once running it will give you an idea as to what is going on in terms of traffic over the data connection, it will even track day/ week and monthly usage - well worth it if you are going to start using the GPRS side of the moblie phone, its worth the effort but put the protection in place to avoid the nasty unexpected cost dropping through the letter box, do a search on www.handango.com to find it, some smart phones/ pocket PC phones come with it for free so check your disks and phone supplier - Mike
