Is there a way to get the gps on my vodafone smart 858 (Huawei U8160) working with some maps without a data plan ?
I know some other mobile phones can do this, I have a 4gb sd card in my phone.
Vodafone UK has come up with a new twist for potential buyers of smartphones on their network. Dubbed Vodafone Red Hot, users sign up for a pair of 12-month contracts. The first is for a typical data plan that includes unlimited voice and text and up to 2GB of data. The second contract is to “hire” the device you select.
First let me start this post by explaining my situation.....
I am on my parents AT&T family plan as a $10 add on dumb phone. Previously I have been using other networks (T-Mobile) smart phones to get around having to pay for a data plan. This has worked for the last several years but I have just now upgraded to a phone with a micro SIM (Nexus 5 if course).
I have a limited data plan now, Old phone was Nexus 1 and no problem
With data usage . Got a Nexus 4 and use about twice as much data. I see Google maps is using most of the data. I am going to update my data plan in few months to correct it.
T-Mobile said it was because it is a faster phone will all the latest updates
I plan to use my Galaxy S5 almost exclusivly for Google maps. I changed from touch wiz to Google now. Google maps runs fine on both. I want to travel extensively but since I have a mere 500 mg of data (I don't want to Pay for more}, I plan to disable WIFI and DATA while travelling and use previously downloaded maps of the areas I'll be travelling in.
Launch of new mobile plan by Vodafone NZ with a huge differential between on-net and off-net calling rates has led the NZ Commerce Commission to reverse an earlier decision. It now says that mobile termination rates - the prices mobile operators charge other telcos for delivery of calls to their customers' phones - should be regulated.
