Default Unlimited BIS with UK Vodafone?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been told that Vodafone does not have an unlimited BlackBerry plan. All the plans have a monthly cap. Can someone confirm that? Is there a cap? Do they charge overage or impose any penalties? Or does anyone here have an unlimited BB plan with Vodafone in the UK?

Thanks in advance.

The UK does not offer any (true) unlimited data plans on any network.
They usually have a "fair usage" policy which is also called a cap. Despite the plan saying Unlimited. (t-mobile uk for example has unlimited internet, but its a fair usage cap of 1GB).
Most data plans have a high enough cap that you will NEVER go over it.
And as long as it isnt excessive, and isnt excessive every month, you usually do not incur charges.

In Vodafone it's a 500MB fair use policy, not a hard limit. They do NOT charge for going over it.
