With my prepaid I have to pay traffic for every 10kb at 24ct/mb.

Probably very low as long as the connection is stable. Every reconnect
due to connection loss will cost 10kb. This won't happen so frequently -
let's say in average every 30 minutes. This will be about 3.5 euro per
month with my card. Pretty cheap indeed.

Just one issue. Right now muxing does not work with 2008.8. Another
issue: even when muxing will work in the future, I don't know whether my
provider supports both a voice and a data channel open.

With interval checking I assume the traffic per check not more than
10kb. If you check every 5 minutes - which is not what I call `immediate
notification' - it will cost 20 euro per month. Just for the checking.

If you want to get closer to `immediate notification' and check every 3
minutes, costs go up to 35 euro a month.

So if I get IMAP-idle working in a stable way and with muxing, it's the
thing to go with. Interval checking is no choice at all.
