Shock horror of the bill from Orange for new Treo. Basically Orange have taking tautology to new peaks by defining “Open Access” to mean ability to access WAP pages only (free for first 3 months), not clear how one knows which are WAP pages or not.

Accessing internet and emails counts as GPRS which are charged at £3 per Megabyte! However, you can have a “Openworld” plan where first month is free and then you are charged £4 per month for 3megabytes of data plus 10 texts and 20 phototexts.

Also make sure you get your new phone on or shortly after 5th of month. otherwise your free first month is shortened accordingly.

The nice man at Orange credited me for GPRS usage todate since I was new to the GPRS/WAP game.
