Dear  mobile tech addicts.
I am writing to you guys again in response to my phone the c905. I am on 02 pay monthly(£30).With unlimited internet data.I originally wrote to you two weeks ago,thank you for reading my email. I am unable to view video on mobile,ie you tube etc..In your reply you said that i should find out which access point i am on/using. (Q)Where do i find this information from,do i need to go to there website(02). or do i call 02 customer service or visit a 02 shop. My contract is via Carphone warehouse. What do I say to them, how can I best explain it to them.please advice.
Thank You.

Chris Writes:
Hi Andy, i know your a helpful guy so I wondered  if you could help me out with Vodafone? Following your great advice from a podcast I managed to cancel my Vodafone contract early due to the unlimited data bundles being capped at 500mb.
I wrote a letter (from template) and then called a few days later as I had not had a response. The lady I spoke to cancelled my contract without much fuss and I was very happy. 2 days later a guy called me about the letter I sent and I said no need as it had been cancelled already.
Now I just got a final bill from Vodafone that includes £168.61  charge for cancellation prior to contract end date. I just spoke to customer services and they said I cancelled my contract before the changes took affect so I have been charged for cancellation. They say that the announcement was just advisory. Any Idea’s to where to go next?  The Swansea call centre would not budge even after being bumped up to the manager.


I was just wondering if you could help me im wonting a new phone but im not sure on what to get and i need it on pay as you go and i dont wont nothing too expensive no more then £120 so if you could help me i would love it
p.s love the website and the clips very helpful
