  1. Wow, not one Windows Phone mention. We have a decent used market. We use WhatsApp, Viber, etc. The Nokia Express browser does compression.

    The Android version of Onavo Extend is only good for phones that run 4.0 (ICS), it doesn't work with anything newer.
  3. Use a cheap 'throw away' phone and pre-paid plan.

    Awesome, just saved 15% on my AT&T bill because I'm in graduate school. Boo on Verizon though, no discounts for my student email address nor my daughter's.
  5. If you reside in the UK purchase an unlimited data plan for £12.90 a month and not worry about data usage: http://store.three.co.uk/view/searchSimOnly?tariff=2915

    Or if you want it cheaper pay for the £6.90 a month sim only deal and upgrade to unlimited data for an extra £3. For an upfront cost of £160 get a nice Nexus 4 too - http://www.google.co.uk/nexus/4/

    There's no need to pay £800-900ish over two years for a nice phone and unlimited data.

    Unlimited texting is becoming more and more common and there is no real use for apps like Whatsapp.

    Also you can install a Download Meter app (for iPhone and iPad), enter your free data cap into it and the app will warn you when you are about to reach 70%, 80% 90% of your data limit.

    It's very handy to stay below your data limit with that app!

  8. Opera already does this.
  9. No one cares about windows phones I think the windows 8 phone interface is tacky and you have way more app options with android and ios.
