    I think with most packages you get a certain amount of 'free' texts. I'm not sure if they are all 'unlimited' texts now, but I know that if you have a certain amount of free texts them multimedia/picture messages account for 3/4 of your free texts :yes:

    To e-mail us a pic at our live e-mail address would be free, provided that you had free internet (which all iPhone contracts have!)

    If you are abroad, however, the 'free' internet becomes VERY expensive :yes:

    I recommend o2 there packages come with unlimited Internet so won't pay extra to download iTunes. There is a lower priced contract with unlimited texts have a look at their rates

    I have free email and internet included in my monthly price plan with O2. The only costs incurred with iTunes is the cost of the single, album etc that you are buying.

    With 99% of the contract it's going to be 'unlimited' internet but from what people have said, 02 is changing their contracts :yes: The only cost for iTunes is the actual price that you are downloading from iTunes. The actual browsing of the internet is free.

    Well I'm miffed now! The contract I took out (24 month) now offers unlimited texts. I routinely go over my 500 allowance.

    Trace, I am on Pay & Go, I get unlimited texts and internet for £10 a month. I top up £10 and it takes £5 from my balance for the texts and nothing extra for the internet.

    If you add that and the price of the phone, I reckon you'd still be better off with it on pay as you go. However, many people prefer Contract phones :shrug:

    Jeez! That's a lot of texts! I have to laugh, Caitlin didn't realise what she was using and ended up with a £22 bill for texts over and above her allowance. I did make her pay it back in labour and now she's on unlimited

    If you get a Pay & Go do it now and then buy the iPhone later on. That way you can put the sim in your new iPhone but you'll have the current unlimited contract.
