Limiting data costs

There are several ways to limit the costs of downloading video/audio:

- Get a data bundle: Signing up to a monthly or daily flat-rate or capped data package will limit your monthly spend on surfing the mobile internet or downloading video clips, especially if you are a heavy user. Contact your network operator for further details.

- Use Wi-Fi: An increasing number of mobile phones now come with Wi-Fi built-in. You can reduce data costs by accessing BBC Mobile this way, via your wireless broadband connection at home or at a wireless hotspot. If you are unsure whether your phone has Wi-Fi built in, contact the phone manufacturer or your network operator.

- Use Bluetooth: Some of the video clips available on BBC Mobile are not locked and can be sent by Bluetooth to another phone – so share them with your friends.
