How long would 250MB last purely for browsing?

How much browsing can I do with 250MB? No Youtube or streaming just Facebook and stuff.

Well, if you don't 'tube or upload pics to FB etc, you are probably best of using Opera Mini, in which case you could browse 24/7 (heck, 48/7) and never ever use up your allowance (opera's compression technology means your phone only loads 10-20% of the data usually need, while still rendering pages pretty much 'as designed' - minus flash).
But anyhoo, even with Android's webkit, or Safari etc etc, you should be good for a month if you don't stream audio or video.

Just don't use Orange, they cant seem to be able to tell me why 100mb was used up in 3 days!! Any of my android downloads and browsing was done through wifi. Then they cant decide to charge or not, some data is charged other data isnt.
Make sure you get a decent data provider, I think the iphone 4 sim from T mobile gives you 500mb a month but no streaming but then thats what wifi is for.

Should last a long time. I'm a fairly regular browser on my phone and rarely pass 200 MB in a month. I imagine most people don't because most of the time you'll be near WiFi which is much faster and more reliable.
