Go to Tools, select "hide member avatars and backgrounds". It's done at the account level, so you can do it once and that'll be your default setting, or you can change it as you'd like.

Here is also a way you can turn off avatars/backgrounds if that helps you save on your bill:
Then scroll down and press 'submit' for the option to hide member avatars/backgrounds.
Staff definitely tries to cut down on massive avatars when we spot them but there is a feature you can use to cut down costs.

I had the same connection as you did (KPN UMTS) but my employer paid for the cost.......only problem for me was I live right across the border in Germany and when the provider was not detected it would switch to an alternative one, in my case a German provider. Cost went up to 2,- euro per MB!!!
My employer kindly requested that I'd arrange some alternative since my monthly bill was 10x higher than those of my colleagues........
I'm currently hitchhiking on my neighbors WiFi.......... (with his permission of course)

As an aside, we do have rules in place for the size of avatars and backgrounds: New Rules for Avatars and Backgrounds.
Maximum pixel dimensions: 170 pixels wide by 240 pixels high.
Maximum file size: Remains 75k
So, if you see one that clearly violates it, just hit alert on the post you see it....staff will handle from thereedit on June 5th 2011 by greeneyedleo because: (no reason given)
