Argh... I want it also! :cry: Pocket PC Thoughts is reporting about a flat GPRS plan from T-Mobile USA:

For $19.99, you can get UNLIMITED wireless Internet access when coupled to a voice service of at least $29.99. I had been paying $19.99 for just 10MB. Sometimes these deals are reserved for new customers only, though, so I called T-Mobile technical support (800-937-8997) and within five minutes my account had been switched to the new data plan!

That's not a bad deal at all! 8) I've recently upgraded my plan for O2 Germany from the "GPRS by Call" to GPRS XL which includes 5 MB per month for € 7,95 and every additional 10 KB costs 0,022 € (because I'm using a Smartphone and a Pocket PC Phone Edition I had to upgrade both SIM cards to GPRS XL). However, an "equal" tariff for 24,95 € would give me 20 MB only... :cry: I'm still asking myself why GPRS is so prohibited expensive in some countries without the option to buy a flat plan? Please Peter Erskine (CEO mmO2): "introduce flat GPRS in the O2 countries as well"... ;-)

Cheers ~ Arne

a flat fee in Germany would really be great. I just upgraded to the GPRS XL O2 Plan as well. Now I'm using my XDA online a lot more. I still turn off graphics in pie otherwise 5MB isn't that much. Compared to a year ago the GPRS prices have dropped quite a bit in Germany so maybe there is hope for a flat rate. Of course it would be even greater if the GPRS Roaming prices in Europe would drop...

I don't think there'll EVER be a GPRS flat in Germany. First there have to be normal flats for fixed lines everywhere which is not the case today. Otherwise everybody would use GPRS as his everyday internet access which would mean high traffic and low performance. And do not forget that fixed line flats where available are a lot more expensive than 20 euros a month
