Default cheapest data deal

Got a nokia E70 for xmas, sim free,
at the moment i'm using my t-mobile payg sim in it, i get 3G coverage
upstairs where i live, not downstairs tho, despite us living on the top of a

Anyway, i know i can use web n walk on payg for a quid a day, not sure if
that can be used for laptop use tho....

But i'd like to get a contract sim with a half decent data allowance, i'd
heard t-mobile were doing one for a tenner a month, but that's expired and
it's now 30 quid a month again.

Heard O2 have reduced their data rates considerably, 3 are supposed to have
best deals for date, but get arsey when a phone not bought from them is used
or something.

I want to use the phone's browser to check web sites out, and when i'm out
in the camper, use the phone as a modem to get on the net with the lappy...
which i understand means i'd need the more expensive web n walk package to
do that.

Not interested in using voip ever, don't make many phone calls, but use data
a fair bit.

in an ideal world the contract would include data roamiong abroad included
in the allowance, but i think that's pushing it, well not for a decent price
someone on disability benefits can afford anyway.

So what are the best deal for a mainly contact at the moment, or does anyone
know of any that are about to comeout if i wait a little???

As far as T-mobile is concerned...

The old T-mobile SIM only package has been discontinued, you could add
all the Web'n'Walk packages to that and it gave 50 cross network minutes
7.50. Now the best is 20 minimum on "Just Sim" with WnW costs on top.

Best bet might be to get one of the "mobile broadband" offerings. There
is one which is 20 a month including a USB modem on a 24 month
contract. You could sell the modem too I suppose.
