You can always check your usage which will then give you a good indication of what your needs actually are, I use the phone for internet so rarely it doesn't even move the scales..

Chances are that when you've been a GG customer for a while, they'll give you an extra Gb of data for free.

Re: Buying a Mobile Phone

I've used 20mbs of data and haven't left home yet. When in the kitchen, I pick up my neighbours wifi: SKY***** something or other.

Not sure how that works.

I thought giffgaff was O2

I'm also working on wifi pairing the mobile with my camera: remote viewfinder, fine-tuner and shutter release.

The only time I have had to do this is when my Home internet was down, so I was using Samsung internet via Tesco mobile.
Absolutely agree, I get 30Gb, at the end of the month there is usually 29.3Gb left, it really annoys me but that's what I get with my plan (I need the unlimited overseas calls)

The only time it really comes in handy is when I am travelling but even then i might only use a gig or two more.

Ironically this month they gave me an extra 15Gb because it is my birthday so at the end of this month I will have 44.3 Gb left
