This probably isn’t Apple’s fault, so I am not getting at them, just the few carriers (possibly). From what the information on Apple’s website seems to convey for the 3G data plans, there are some evil restrictions. Only little old Three seems to be the only completely nice carrier (or is it?). Here’s the roundup:
3: 1GB/month Unrestricted 10GB/month Unrestricted
O2: 500MB/day Restricted 1GB/month Restricted 3GB/month Restricted
Orange: 200MB/day unrestricted 1GB/week unrestricted 3GB/month Restricted 10GB/month Restricted
Vodafone: 1GB/month Restricted 3GB/month Restricted 5GB/month Restricted
Now, I may have misinterpreted what Apple said with the footnote of ‘1. Includes Wi-Fi browsing, refer to carrier website for terms and conditions’, as when I visited the Orange website, the plans that had a ‘1’ by them were for BT Openzone WiFi, and not necessarily your own WiFi. I hope that I am mistaken, but with Three’s 10GB/month for only £15 (no WiFi), that seems like a pretty good offer. I apologise tot the other carriers if I am wrong and it is BTOpenzone, and if that is the only restricted WiFi, then you should tell Apple to make it clearer

Please comment on how you would interpret it from just what Apple say and what Apple and the carriers say combined.
