I'm not against the vodofone cards, for the right application they are a very useful bit of kit.
But I suspect most zaurus users would have one to score points and for 'my pda's better than your pda' discussions (which it is - obviously lol)

However might it not be a better idea to have a much cheaper tariff on a bluetooth mobile and connect to that through a bluetooth card on your zaurus ?

A client of mine used to use a vodafone card as his main internet connection so I've got some idea what the things cost to run. And it's not cheap.

I needed to find something online when visiting a father in law yesterday, and ran up GBP3.50 on virgin GPRS in about 10 mins, even when images were disabled in netfront... probably read about 15 web pages in text-only mode if that!

Ouch! If only the selfish neighbour hadn't gone and locked-down their wireless access point :-(

£1 all day free GPRS win from orange... Unlimited gprs all day for £1. Ive used 20+MB on it before - most uk providers charge several pounds per MB :-D

here if i find a wlan network it is probably locked... rolleyes.gif and gprs is cheap as hell, 100 or 200 MB a month (depends on the contract), and this is around 8 GBP or 14 US$ or so in your currency. also as i'm with vodafone and they provide a good data compression, that's actually twice of the mbyte's. never ran out of it...

I took a look at www.Orange.co.uk and no sign of that pricing:
http://www2.orange.co.uk/servlet/Satellite...d=1137070320264

so I am wondering how you get that price!

reading the orange site, it seems that it's GBP1 per day for unlimited acess to Orange World, which is their "walled garden" of services (email, ringtones, news etc), NOT general internet access.
