comment User Testing Framework and Questions for comparative tests
Typologies are essentially vague and broad brush (and can just end up with endless arguments as to what fits under which category) I think you're in danger of trying to make something look accurately measurable that actually isn't. ( There are "Lies, Damn Lies and Typologies" ... )

comment Might a design be “too good” for users that expect a low price?
Its also worth pointing out that not only is much academic research on cognitive science based on American/European audiences but much academic research uses 'college students' as they often form a handy pool of free research subjects in the same building...

comment What do you do when the user interrupts the purchase process?
You also don't want it to reset too quickly as the user goes off to hunt out which jacket / coat has their wallet in so they can find their credit cards.

PS - the key criteria is how much you'll be using the phone away from your home wi-fi. If you use it mainly at home then you won't be using much of the mobile data.

comment How to design a “data usage calculator” for a brand new smartphone users
Currently you've written this as a 'consumer question' so it will get closed. However if you re-word it as 'How do I demonstrate to users what 1GB of data actually looks like ?' its a useful question which mobile phone companies might want to take note of on their websites.

comment The “Mental Model Law”
I think the earliest reference which comes to mind is Bartlett (1932) with the War of the Ghosts experiment: asbib.wikia.com/wiki/… The bottom line is the same: what you see is what you THINK you'll see (ie new knowledge depends on existing knowledge).
