Anyone got a good combination of mobile calls and texts as well as a decent internet allocation?

100 texts and 100 minutes would do me for a long time and I have a 15GB allowance for internet.

Anyway of combining the two with a decent phone in the mix too?

In Ireland I should add.

I'm on 200 texts and calls, free meteor calls and texts, 1gb of mobile internet. €30 per month.

I haven't gone over limits yet and I use my phone regularly.

Got a samsung galaxy s2 which has been good. I would find it hard to recommend an iphone really, sony ericsson and htc also have some good handsets.

Looks like this won't work then - using about 400MB's a week on the internet on the laptop at the moment going on my usage.

No internet in your own place?

Maybe a seperate dongle then. Price it out, you can get a very high limit on phones so worth looking at that.

No - that is why I have a seperate dongle at the moment so am trying to lump it all in the one at the moment.

If you are used of a Laptop though I reckon depending solely on a little phone screen for internet will get annoying. :001_unsure:

That is a very good deal.

Can I set this up in such a way that I could use the phone as my modem with the laptop?

My laptop is old but does have a wireless connector.

Worse comes to worst I suppose I can use the Huaewi with the new SIM card?

Not a problem to do what you want.

The internet is not limited on this by the way - it is a max of 15GB per month from what I was told.

And it is the 8GB phone.

The 16GB is not free though.

Apparently in the very small writing - yes.

Well i got the 4s 16gb phone and i didnt have to part with any money, are you looking at the iphone 4 or 3 maybe?

Just looked at the t&c http://shop.three.ie/terms/all-you-can-eat-data-terms-conditions/ , they say they reserve the right to limit your data if you exceed 15gb a month, like i said i dont use that much but when i was changing to them at the time i dont recall seeing any of the other networks offering near a much data.

4S - I was looking at - indeed you can't get the 4 with that GB :D

And your last point is exactly correct.
