Mild hijak... was planing on getting a 4G tablet however am I just being thick here or is the entire data sim thing an utter fucking consumer ass raping? You can pay monthly, wonderful a second phone contract basically just with less features for about the same price. You can go pay as you go which sounds perfect except that everywhere has a 30day expiry on anything you buy. So thats just a fucking monthly contract then isnt it you plonkers? >_< We need Anne Robinson to kick up some shit because I dont see how it can be that you pay for a certain amount of service and they arbitrarily throw what youve paid for in the bin after 30 days.
Is there any decent data sims with anything resembling a fair deal? Its a tablet, its not going to be using anywhere near what a phone would so I dont really want to be paying monthly for it.
I'm actually really tempted by the HP Stream 8 since it gives you 200meg free per month for the life of the tablet. I know thats not a whole lot but some months thats all I would need.
Why is nothing easy?
edit: £5 a month for 500meg at virgin (or 7 for 1gig, 10 for 2gig) seems about the only one that doesnt feel like a complete fisting so far.
