Good news today if you A) can’t bear to be parted from your email, B) are too stingy to sign up for a contract, C) happen to be on T-Mob, and D) desire full web access wherever you are.

Ticked all those? Good. The pink network’s changed its pricing plan to be so simple even we can understand it: if you’re a T-Mobile PAYG punter, you’ll soon be able to browse online as much as you like for £1 a day.

There is, sadly, a fair use policy, so if you try and download a copy of the Windows Vista beta or a couple of movies over GPRS, you might get the chop.

The deal sounds good, though, and there are some respectable lower-end PAYG mobs on T-Mob right now. Highlights include the dated but skinny Moto V3, the Sony Eric K750i and its classy 2MP camera, plus Nokia’s solid all-rounder, the 6233 (pictured).

T-Mob's cheap web frolics don't start till 1st August, by which time, O2, Orange and Vodafone could also follow suit – we'll update this story if any of them declare plans. So far, the closest deal we've seen is Orange's £1-a-day browsing offer, but it only covers sites on Orange World portal.

21st June update: the final paragraph has been changed to clear up an ambiguity about whether the Orange offer applied to unlimited web browsing or Orange World-only browsing.
