    thinking about not renewing my 3 contract..

    contract expired - and now having thoughts about leaving

    + they are removing unlimited data


    saw a card for 198 a month with unlimited DATA

    this also thru 3 but not sure to believe it or not cos the guy in 3 shop said no unlimited DATA plan available..

    he was also very keen to give me iphone 6 and new data controct 3 years

    I have a fine iphone 5 - not bothered about upgrading it,,,

    any one have any recent info or comments to share?

    ie what are my options?
    thnx

    Most "unlimited data" plans seem to now come with a soft cap called "Fair Use Policy'. My Smartone truly unlimited plan is coming to an end too and I don't think i have much choice beside going with one of these FUP plans.

    ok, at first I thought you were talking about leaving Hong Kong, until I read further...

    my only comment is that I am much happier with my iphone 6 vs the iphone 5. Much better battery life and love the larger screen size.

    yes it looks nice - but since I never the house and very rarely use my phone in the streets etc - prefer to zig zag thru the phone zombies fully aware - i wont be investing in that? you have to cough up the 600 a month for 2 years - which is about 12000?


    and yes I am planning to leave hence dont want a contract particularly ( a year one might be bearable and the 30$ a month diff is nieither here or there...

    I might also do a bit of tethering at home sometimes...
