1) Be very, very careful how you use your Orange phone to connect to the web. If you can't afford to take out a second mortgage really, be very careful.

2) If you don't know what I mean by "be careful" then be very worried as Orange say that, unlike phone calls, they can't give you a breakdown of data charges so there is no way of knowing which activity - wap access, Flickr upload or modem access for the laptop - that is costing you the money.

3) If you want to stop being worried by trying to find out more then be very patient as no one will understand your questions and if you call their technical support line they will actually charge you for the privilege of trying to explain to them why their system is less than ideal.
