No, because all Non-US mobile providers have made super-damned-sure that we'll be ripped off left right and center..

How else do you explain £4 for 1MB of Data Transfer on Orange?

I conducted a 3-seconds and 2-clicks research on the subject, and my results are very conclusive. The findings show that there is an easy way to get a background on your Gmail page (the strategy of enquiry was exploratory; the sample frame consisted of a single Gmail user equipped with a pointing device).
The hypothesis A1 ("a specific web page allows Gmail users to personalize their account") is verified, and the dedicated URL is mail.google.com/mail/#settings ...

More than 40 days later, Google has fixed the persistent bugs and is rolling out Short Message Service text messaging for Gmail chat. Caveat: You must have a U.S. phone number for it to work. Sorry.

To turn it on in Gmail, click on Settings and go to the Labs tab. Find "Text Messaging (SMS) in Chat," select Enable and choose Save Changes. *To send a text message to a friend, type a phone number into the search box in the chat window on the left, then select "Send SMS.""

Thanks for the laugh, but the question was vague and I don't think your answer covered all the possibilities.

Indeed. The result of the hypothesis C3 ("You can make Page wear a background") hasn't been published yet.
So far, the best process identified is to email Page at page[put at-character here]google.com or page[put at-character here]cs.stanford.edu, with the request background as attached file.

However, the study needs further research since there's no evidence that the clothes are actual background.
