Actually, if you have packet-houdai, you get the highest discount rate
above for all packets not covered by the all-you-can-eat plan (0.015
JPY/packet). So using a full browser is not really all that bad, though
it's not great, either.
In my experimentation, it cost me about ten yen per page. I use the
full browser once in a while when I am away from a computer and really
need to see a page that the i-Mode browser won't display, and I don't
find the charges excessive. However, I wouldn't want to be using it for
everything, of course.
