  2. Hi Well I dont have an answer, and Im still looking for the right package. firstly check that the area you want to go to has the right coverage. 3g coverage is patchy to say the least, eg ive found that only orange provide 3g in my area. I cant speak for pay as you go, but the monthly package i was looking at, is firstly very costly in comparison with a UK deal (40epm) but a mountain of proof/paperwork is needed.  The carphone warehouse equilivant, The Phone House, requires from me: 1 RIB 2 Passport 3 Bank card 4 a utility bill with my French address on it (as my cheque book has my uk address printed) 5 a french address My French which is not great at the best of times, is Im afraid wanting when trying to negotiate a phone contract, though i am aware that the penalties for exceeding the limits are severe. good luck in your search and i will follow your choice with interest kim
  3. Hi Im  also looking for mobile broadband in france, really for occasional use at a maison seconde. The 2 problems I experiance are that in the depths of Dept 62 the coverage seems to be poor. and my French is is not good at the best of times is being sorely tested when trying to negotiate a mobile broadband contract. The best package for me, limited use  during the week and unlimited at weekend, doesnt have good enough coverage, so ive gone (or going) for an orange deal at e15 per month.  Im now getting together my documents (utility bill, RIB etc) for my 3rd visit to City of Europe to sort it out once and for all.

  20. it looks like you dont need a dongle for that, it says it has built in broadband. from the uk spec...'Get online in a flash. From just £25 a month you get the award-winning Samsung NC10 netbook with 1GB of mobile broadband. And because our superfast mobile broadband is built-in, there's no separate modem to worry about'. therefore as far as i know when you buy the laptop you purchase a contract, as you do with a mobile phone. this sounds easier than linking your phone to your laptop it will be nothing to do with your home computer. but where ever you are you must ensure you have the coverage as you would need to use the phone, but be aware im told the connection reliability etc isnt so good compared with a home connection. finally you can do without a connection if your laptop is wifi enabled and you can find a cafe etc which if wifi enabled hope this assists kim
  21. for the pro, they wouldnt  touch anything other than a stihl or husquavana (sic) stihl is by far the better make, but they wont sell be mail order and tend to be about £100 more expensive than a husq. having said that i have an electric flymo woodshark which is great kim
