Information at your finger tips. Literally. That's what it's all about. You're no longer bound by physical spaces like offices, desks and boardrooms. Don't sacrifice your life for your work; make doing business a part of your life.
You're permanently online, and only get charged for sending and receiving. So don't worry about connecting, the web's a click or two away. Once you are connected you're always online. Speed and ease The connection set-up is faster and you get a better user experience with regard to speed when surfing and downloading information. Text and page links always appear first- that means speedier navigation. You'll be amazed how much quicker WAP is with a GPRS connection.
You only get charged for the data you send and download. That's it. You're not getting charged for the whole world wide web. You're paying for information you access and send. That's fair. Only pay for what you use.
Data is measured in bytes.There are just 1024 bytes in one Kilobyte (KB) and 1024 Kilobytes in one Megabyte (MB).You can work out how much you're spending by tallying the number of bytes you send and receive.
Please remember that your data usage will only include information sent or received by your mobile, PDA or laptop.
