1. Get to Know Your Phone > Choose a Data Plan

Choose a Data Plan

With their comprehensive wireless support, Nokia phones are some of the most data-friendly gadgets around. If you’re going to use your phone to connect to the Internet, make sure you’ve got the right data plan.

Your Nokia phone can connect you to the Internet in a lot of ways, but it’s going to cost you. Before you commit to a costly data plan, you need to consider what you’ll do with the phone. Will you send and receive email on the phone [Hack #60] ? Do you plan to send a lot of camera phone pictures or video clips [Hack #69] ? How about posting to your weblog [Hack #56] ? And most important, will you use your Nokia phone to connect (tether) your laptop to the Internet [Hack #40] ? It’s possible for you to use your phone for a lot of what your computer can do, and yes, there are plenty of hotspots around for that data fix when you need it. But I think you’ll give in and tether eventually— just wait until the first time you open up your laptop and find no WiFi signal while your phone is showing five bars!
