Be careful with the 3G network! Listening to Internet radio, my wife ran up a bill of 600 euro in ONE NIGHT while on vacation in Denmark. She was trying to use a WiFi connection … but at some point the nokia must have switched to 3G.

@ David:

Yes, this is a real worry with this type of fonera. It should only be used within your country, if you travel with it the 3G operators kill you. What they do with roaming in a borderless Europe is highly unethical.

I have one of those 3G devices in Sweden and I also would like to be able to get Wifi. When is that app going to be released Martin? I assume we will need Fonera 2.0 to be able to run that, right?

BTW, I have unlimited 3G bandwith so I’m okay with that, I won’t pay 600 € bill or something.
