Yes, GPRS is expensive and WAP is pants ! 0845 is premium rate on Vodafone(not sure about Orange) and I can't make use of my monthly off peak 900 minutes. Have anyone in UK come across any local number ISP like 020(london) ,0121(birmingham) & etc ? Few pounds to ten pounds a month shouldn't be a problem as long as i can kill my free minutes while walking on the street or waiting for the train during weekends . :-)

Cheers
