I found the pocketmail to be way to expensive for the average backpacker/hiker who only gets out on a handful of trips a year.

I'm on a Virgin Liberty SIM with costs my £10 a month (monthly rolling contract) for 200 minutes & 200 txts (they do, do other plans too).

On the recent Pubeck trip I used my SE 810i to mobile blog, Virgin only charge 30p a day for emails. So I can send as many emails+pictures to the blog for 30p and this is only charged when I use the service.

Seems that the blackberry offers the most reliable route in practice thus far.

Although the pocketmail has an edge on connectivity but not on sending a pic enhanced blogx. Still early days then...

I did blog the TGOC on the LG KS360 (much as I like the Pocketmail, it wasn't worth taking out a subscription for a 2-week trip, but I will be using it again next year).

Bonus of the KS360 was that I could send photos (although it took me a few days to even consider that was a possibility). Downside is that it's faulty. If I manage to return it for a refund rather than a replacement, then I'm going down the Blackberry route.

Geoff, I've been looking around as most of the 'deals' are based on 18 or 24 month contracts, so not actual that cheap.

Is there any system available for a bog standard Pay-As-You-Go mobile phone like my Nokia 1100? (!).

George, So the iPhone didnt even get on the starting blocks then...

I had a chat with Gayle at the AGM and I'm sure she said she was going to use the Pocket Mail but I guess they must have changed their minds.

Dude, I saw that deal and am very tempted by it.

Hey baz,

I think I've found a really good contender for the hills. The Nokia E71 on the 3 network. Has a qwerty keyboard, GPS and camera so you can mobile blog to your hearts content. Apparently battery life is great too (as opposed to my N82) and Three have anunlimited internet package with calls and texts for £25 a month. I'm well tempted by my contract doesn't run out until Jan 2010!

Baz; Darren isn't using his iPhone, it when belly up the week before the challenge. He is using his old PDA phone.

So I think M&G are using a normal mobile phone (the LG KS360) for blogging the challenge.

I'm using a Blackberry on my own for business and their batteries are long lasting and spare ones do not weigh much so I guess he could easily get around with a charged phone and two spare batteries.. Wait, I've just seen that he takes no spares but a charger for it. Obviously it is not all wild camping for him an Sue... ;-)And Sue carries her own phone plus charger, too.
