So wait, let me get this straight...I will be able to use a Vario II on the HSDPA service...on the WnW £7.50 plan for mobile surfing, email etc...just general light usage stuff on a PPC.
BUT if I want to use a datacard (ie for laptop use etc) then I would need to move onto the WnW Pro £17 plan.
Is that right?
Well you could do that but it may not be the cheapest: it depends on what T-mobile will be offering. That Register article seems seriously confused then again T-mobile website isn't very clear either.
There are two bundles which can be added to a pay monthly tariff.
WnW (aka WnW consumer) T&Cs allow internet use form a handset. They ban modem use (e.g. laptop) and various other things. It is £7.50 including VAT. 3G allowed but 64kbps upload, 384 download. Probably can't have HSPDA either.
WnW Pro bundle allows modem use and has less restrictions but is £10 a month including VAT on top of a pay monthly taridd. It is 384 kbps upload and download and will be usable with HSPDA too.
Some pay monthly deals have WnW consumer included and people have had problems changing that to WnW Pro because I suppose it is effectively changing the tariff.
There may also be some WnW Pro deals including a regular tariff.
So depending on whats around if you have a Vario II with WnW Pro included in the taridd you could get internet access either from the handset or using it as a modem from a laptop.
If you just want a HSPDA data card then the WnW Pro package (confusing name) is £17 a month which is the WnW Pro bundle plus some subsidy charge so they can give away a data card.
