    No… Firstly the platform is designed to be an internet junky secondly all those android applications are not free as they claim it to be. You need to buy that thing cash and get yourself the uncap R299 offer from MTN if you want any joy. Trust me 75mb is nothing.

    Save up buy the thing cash and get a contract you can actually use.

    And I wouldnt buy the HTC, but it is cheaper on a contract. I have the samsung galaxy 10.1 .......... cash price is around R6500. On a contract I am paying R200 per month over a 24 month period = Total : R4800.00 !


    Ps ..... Oh by the way ...... I have not paid for an app since I got it around 6 months ago and 2gigs is more than enough per month - I usually carry over every month. You do not need uncapped.

    If you don’t mind the constant advertisement that comes with the “free” applications I suppose you can live with it. But only 2Gb? Really?

    I suppose “if” you only use it as a tool and not for entertainment 2Gb will be enough. But if you do wish to use it to watch HD clips and use it for social networking I promise you now 2Gb will not be enough. I know I also had a 2Gb contract it wasn’t enough for me.

    But don’t listen to me... What do I know... I just like the idea to own the hardware cash and get myself uncap .

    "Almost" no restrictions is a nice to have.

    Just make sure they cut you off after the 2Gb is done. If it is a "open contract" like I had you can wake up with a nasty bill. A friend of mine hit a R3000 bill!!! Not cool at all.

    If it is Vodacom you can set a voluntary limit but it doesn’t give you much protection. The real limit you can only change after the 7th month if I remember correctly. I think it is set on R3000 if I am not mistaken.

    I use myne for business and social - am on it all the time and have never gone over the limit. In fact I have data from carried over. I took it overseas - used it wi-fi at the hotels - used it to find restuarants and places of interest with the gps - it was an absolute pleasure - even used it to video.

    Just to get back to the "advertising" - not all apps have the little block at the top right hand corner which is the free adverstising, some do have it but it is not a problem. I do not use it to watch or download videos so perhaps that is where most of the data goes with the guys that find 2gig not enough.

    Agreed video streaming is one of the main reasons why I would suggest uncap.
