Novatel Wireless’ new Verizon Jetpack MiFi device is just $129.99 prepaid

If you are planning on coming to the United States any time soon and you’re planning to be out-and-about (that is, not chained to a specific hotel or office with WiFi), you’ll probably be giving a lot of thought about data roaming costs.

The INQ1 is available for pre-order now. £79.99 PAYG.

I’ll take two please. £80 quid a go? Brilliant! Well. I can only actually USE one at a time. I’m slightly concerned about the possibility of adopting the INQ1 because I fear it could be hugely, hugely addictive!

PAYG without top-ups, does it exist?

So I was thinking yesterday (potentially dangerous) about the ongoing situation with my parents and their $8million dollars in phone credit they never use. (To catch anyone up, they’re both on PAYG, rarely use their phones but still have to put in a $10 phone card every month, Dad is sitting somewhere over $100 in […]

You have 1 minute of credit remaining. AHHH!

I am, for some inane, strange reason, on a PAYG tariff with one of my T-Mobile accounts.  I asked them, ages ago, to swap me to their lowest plan — which was some UFIX Talk thing. I’m not entirely sure what’s going on.  They are billing me per month.  Right? Yet I’ve got a price […]
