GPRS internet cost warning

Should you want to connect to the internet from your Windows XP Laptop be very aware that Windows XP Automatic Update is enabled by default.

This can download many MBs in the background, which is very expensive for GPRS modems - 3/MB or more depending upon your network.

And browsing is best done with images turned OFF!
