I am an English teacher, born in Scotland but I have been living in China since 2006. In my spare time I build websites and write articles about China. I am also a keen travel photographer and contributor to Getty Images stock library.

comment Do I need another Z-visa to re-enter China if I have a residence permit?
Not quite. You can transition form student to work and back without leaving the country and without getting a new visa. You do, however, need to get a new residence permit. On the residence permit there is a field for "Purpose of Residence" which would need updated. The original entry visa becomes irrelevant once you have a residence permit.

comment The using of VPN on iPhone in China
China Mobile and China Unicom both do 3G. My daughter and I both have China Mobile on our phones. My wife has Unicom. Never had any problem with either no matter where we went.

comment Booking travel tickets for visa without paying?
What I actually did in the end was go through the online booking process and print out the final page before the payment page. This has the flight numbers, dates, times, total cost and the passengers names. I included these with the visa application and got the visa without any issues.
