T-mobile download limit exceeded. Need advice

Specs: Windows XP
Hi all. I'm in the UK and have a wi-fi USB
dongle,with T-mobile. My monthly download
limit is only 3 GB. I have exceeded that and as
a result can't view Youtube videos,until after 12
pm,midnight,which is pointless for me. I have
tried to use proxies to get around this,but T-
mobile won't let me even use those. So I'm
stuck. I don't want to watch entire movies, or
even spend many hours viewing youtube
videos, I only need to watch them for at most
30 minutes in total for the whole day. Can
anyone be generous and ingenious enough to
propose a solution to my dilema? I can't get
the free dial-up because my room in a rented
house has no fixed telephone line. I phoned t-
mobile and asked them if i could buy more
credit to allow me to view videos but they said
no! Until the month ends I can't watch any
videos.
Any solution would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

A proxy can't help in that situation, because all the traffic must run through the ISP first.
So if you have reached the limit of 3 GBytes and can't buy a higher limit, you still have to wait until next month.

Every video on YouTube, depending on the quality, may have several hundret megabytes.
Doesn't matter whether you store the video to your machine, even watching the video is also a download.

First-off thanks for taking the time to reply to my post. But I only want to watch a few 4 minute clips on youtube,not long movies. So I'm merely bending the rules a little,not breaking them completely.
PLEASE, someone be inventive enough to think up of a way around my problem.

There isn't a way around that.
If you reached the limit, you're off.
So if T-Mobile set the limit and are not willing to change that, once you reached the limit, you're out for that month.

The more interesting question is, how did you reach the limit, if you use the internet connection only for short video clips on YouTube?
