I don't really need a phone though- all I'm looking for is an
alternative to BT Openzone, for which I'm paying £6 a month already. 3
would seem to have a good (and more flexible) alternative on the £10
plan. I don't think I'd have a problem with the 1GB limit- but sometimes
I want to send things quickly. I'm just interested to know how reliable
the service is- the coverage in the areas I'd use it would seem good.
