Has anyone managed to circumvent these updates whilst using a Three

Many thanks - SB.

Your problem is you're using a ****ty limited internet connection.
Limiting data in the 21st century is not acceptable.

Hello Mr Troll - perhaps you can be useful, and belie your reputation
(hint; same as that internet connection) by using your razor-sharp
skills to enumerate available mobile plans with unlimited data?


Mobile is not yet useful for data. You're either using a stupidly
small screen, or tethering to a laptop and having a ridiculously small
limit.

A mobile phone is for calling people, a computer is for the internet.


And an iPad with 4G is for....what exactly, in your 1990s world?


A doorstop. I wouldn't be seen dead holding an Apple product.

So you say - but it would be nice to check the veracity of that
statement :-)

Really? Are you guessing on download sizes or do you actually have a
point to make? My connection is fine thanks, but some people are on
metered downloads, and my point still stands that no paid for operating
system should *ever* update without having explicit permission to do so.


You gave it explicit permission when you installed it.


No I didn't because I refuse to have it anywhere near one of my systems.
(I do understand your point though).

You gave it explicit permission when you installed it. The problem was
that when there was an option, every one opted out. The result was
enough malware infected systems to bring the world down.

The result, Microsoft now forces fixes on all "Home" users...


There is a middle ground which works fine with Macs and linux.


They have less viruses because so few people use them that nobody bothers
writing viruses for them.


You've missed the point of what I was saying. There's no need to be so
draconian and enforce updates on ppl. Quantity of viruses per system is not
important.

"Forcing" updates? No sensible reason not to want an update.

Timing-wise there is. You want updates when they are convenient for *you*,
not just convenient for the computer.

As the op has clearly made the point.

Classy as ever, James. What are you trying to gain with personal attacks?
