in general, he is quite happy with his smartphone and enjoy that he can have his email, txt and play games on it (from android market). however, he hates the fact that he paid close to $100 a week for topups in the last two months. he put this down to using 'android' phones.
it turns out that he is on prepay without any add-ons. at the vodafone store, he was told that data is cheap as he will only need to pay $1 a day ($30 a month) for a 'casual/up to 10MB a day'. apparently, this should be enough for someone like him with his brand new $800 smartphone.
poor guy... i wish those at the shop should at least able to give some useful advice. by default, everyone buying smartphone should be alerted that they need data add-ons. i wonder how many people are having the same problem.
please note, i am not blaming vodafone but i think this $1 a day for 10MB should not be the selling point for smartphone user
