Why is internet never really free? I know giffgaff has to make money and such but still, how much does it cost to recive a email to be honest. 1/16p. It would be good if we got free email. Especially for the people who use hullomail for the Nexus One.

well it is free until 1st Dec; and then a £10 goodybag is fantastic value - which includes unlimited internet Smiley Very Happy

Probably having a beer in the sunshine somewhere.

Havn't used Hullomail, but is it not just for Voice mail and not an e-mail service?

Yes. But it sends your voice mail to you via email as an mp3. Great service.

Why would you have it emailed? It's pushed to your phone anyway!

Text messages don't cost much for the networks yet they charge for them. They need to make money. If there's a big demand then they can get away with charging less.

I think 150mins, ultd texts and ultd web is more than a bargain at £10 a month!

I'm sorry, but data costs real money, how can you be asking for free internet just because you need it for an app on your phone?

That's like saying 'I call loads of people so I need free phone calls'
