Unlimited Web Bolt On..

Hi Guy's,

Quick question, would I be able to use the unlimited web bolt on for e mail as well with no extra charge?? I have been told in two stores yes and no?? Also is it a case of going to Yahoo, Hotmail and logging in ETC??

Thanks for any input.

Peppers.

I have the web bolt-on with my Simplicity account (OK, the web bolt-on is free with £20 Simplicity), and I can send/receive emails as well as surf the net with the bolt-on.

Yes, you can visit the email sites in your phone browser and login as normal.

Even if you set up POP accounts on your phone (downloading emails to it) the web bolt-on covers all data traffic.

Fair use policy is basically:
Don't send spam emails (block distribution of hundreds)
Don't connect to continuous streaming video / audio
Don't do anything that would impact on the integrity of the o2 network.

To be honest it'd be pretty difficult to fall foul of the fair usage policy.

silly further question....

...from a technophobe!

I also have a simplicity account & have chose unlimited web bolt-on as my free option with my iPhone. I can't access Safari so can't get on the net because my number isn't accepted by the wi-fi zone 'The Cloud' (which is o2's webservice?!).

Am I doing something very very wrong or have I misunderstood my tarriff?

Ta in advance

the cloud

on simplicity the web bolt on only covers useage from the o2 network itself (edge, 3g etc)

in order to use the cloud you would also need the unlimited wifi bolt on

Further to dannyboy's post...

You seem to be getting confused between web and wifi bolt-on's.

The web bolt-on allows you unlimited access to the web via o2's data network (using GPRS / HSDPA connection)

The wifi bolt-on allows you unlimited access to the web via BT Openzone & The Cloud hotspots.

Please note however, you can connect without charge to any free wifi hotspot and your own router (if you have home wifi).
