    With O2 PAYG you will not get EDGE or email.

    Try O2 Simplicity which is very good value for money and will give you both. Although a contract it has no minimum term and can be terminated with 30 days notice.

    In fact, with a data bolt on you can have 200 minutes, 400 texts, and unlimited data for just £22.50 per month. Beat that!

    The problem is as you say - it's wap only on PAYG. E-Mail uses a different protocol and it appears that's blocked by O2 on PAYG

    i recently activated and jailbrocken using an o2 payg sim and i think you can only use o2 email addresses unless you use a simplicity or contract sim
