Reducing phone bill

Currently on O2, pay approx 50 quid a month incl tax. Get approx 1200 mins and 600 texts never use all the minutes. Will O2 change this for me or not?!

No they don't mind you doing this at all as many phone companies like 02 send text out telling people whats the best plan for them. Iphone 4 is just better than any phone out there Apple makes your life easy therefore reducing stress and making you live longer iphone saves lives!

I think that the iPhone might still have the edge even though I've got an HTC Desire (Android). IMHO the apps on the iPhone are a little slicker. The only thing that I have found on the HTC that the iPhone can't do is a operate as a "Wireless Hotspot". A fantastic feature when the wireless broadband in my laptop lets me down (quite a lot).

And a HUGE advantage: It can take spare batteries (HTC).

Went to a stag do recently where we all camped overnight. By midnight, all i-phoners had run out of charge. I just swapped my battery over. In the morning, no i-phoner was able to contact anyone at all.

And it does Google star maps - which is just cool.

I like the idea of my iphone running out our juice so I dont have to ring the wifey the morning after a stago.

Maybe Stevie Jobs thought of this - he really is a fuc*ing legend

We camped on a beach miles from any car.

Also had day trips to London (by train) where I've run out of juice. Again I just swap the battery over.

They are called i-sheep.

MB - lol!

if you jailbreak your iphone you can do that too using an app callled wifi. but tethering over bluetooth is much better, saves on battery power...
