Hei, just wondering if this would be possible: I have a 15/month 3 contract, well, supposedly 15, but tis way too tempting at work to check facebook on it etc. which all adds to the bill. Were i to buy a cheap, unlocked phone from ebay or whatever, and put my 3 sim in it, would it still work? I.e. with a simple, no-tinterweb-temptations nokia or something?
Cheers for any enlightenment

If it's a 3 sim, then then the phone you will have to buy has to be 3G enabled I think, and if the phone has 3G, then it has internet, and for you that means more facebook lol.

Unfortunately 3 SIMs (actually called USIMs for some strange reason), can only work in 3 phones...

Why not ask 3 for a data bolt-on to your tariff? I believe they're charged at the following rates:

Internet 10 -- £2.50/month -- 10MB of data -- for occasional use
Internet Max -- £5.00/month -- UNLTD data -- for heavy use (on the mobile)

This is better than paying through the nose every time you check your facebook

Failing that there must be a way you can just fiddle the settings on the phone itself, like deleting all the internet settings, to actually prevent you from using the internet capability full stop.

Just get the internet add-on or w/e it's called, you will be able to browse the internet on your phone for a few extra pounds a month and you will cut down on those extra costs.
