This is a no brainer really. There is no option to take an iPhone on O2 without a data plan, so it figures that data usage for the iPhone is going to be a lot more than other phones where users have a choice to take a data package or not. Incidently, I turned the wifi off on a demo iPhone in an O2 shop last week and tried browsing. It was horrendously slow, far slower than the HSDPA connection I get on my N95-8GB. If that is what edge is like, I say no thanks, and call...

This is turning into the classic kneejerk reaction from iPhone fans. The very nature of MMS is a message which is received and read within minutes by the recipient, and then responded too. If I can only send emails, I have to wait for my recipient to have access to a PC, which may be hours after I originally sent the message. You're totally kidding yourself if you think your average Joe accesses their email on their mobile phones, regardless of whether they have an...
