Default I'm such an idiot. :S - 08-30-2010, 07:35 PM

While filling in some new contacts on my Google Contacts account on GMail, I wondered why some app downloads were taking so long. Turns out I wasted every penny of the preexisting SIM card PAYG balance by not disabling data. And I need to spend the next few days without credit (hopefully only one) since I've ordered a GiffGaff SIM.

Moral of the story: disable data.

I did a similar thing, I got £15 of credit to "play" with my Streak while I was on the train, rinsed it in about 5 minutes!

PAYG data rates are not pretty.

+1 for giffgaff though!

Please do not send me support requests via PM.
