I ordered a phone with a WnW max package - with the intention of using  
VoIP over it sometimes - not yet achieved - and using the phone as a  
modem with my laptop - running Debian.

Although it is sometimes tricky to get Debian to recognise it, it  
works fine when it does.

It turns out I only got (and was only charged for) WnW standard until  
I complained that Jabber was cutting off - they not only upgraded me  
to what I had ordered, they also gave me some money for the  

I have found ALL mobile phone operators to be a pain in one respect or  

I have however found T-Mobile the quickest to put things right when  
you tell them they're wrong.
