    O2 for personal, Voda for work. Im probably going for Voda in the next few month.

    I used to be with Orange & Vodafone, after various issues with service/signal I moved to T-Mobile found them very good and no plans to change, I’m on a business tariff so had a dedicated Business number for any issues and in the UK. T-Mobile also tag onto Orange network so nearly always a signal.

    Giffgaff and buy the phone yourself. They use O2 network though.

    talkmobile. They are dirt cheap and use the vodaphone network.

    depends what you want ie if you have specific network choice due to poor reception in your area. I was with O2 and their upgrade options were poor. talkmobile didn’t have S3 as an option a month ago. I have signed iphone o Orange deal via dial a phone £31 a month but use top cash back ge £50 then their have their own cash back deal so works out at £22 a month over 24 months bargain… I also sold my old HTC Desire handset at £75 so even cheaper deal. dial a phone been decent too as off shoot of Phones 4 u. best deal by far when I got mine a month ago I spent about 4 weeks researching it.

    Jedi – I wanted the same, specially the unlimited data usage. I left O2 as they would only give me 1gb monthly and scouted around. I’m now with 3. If the reception is ok at yours then I’d recommend them

    Word of warning – you have to call them to remove the book of you want porn!

    iPhone 4gs (when it just came out) £35 big fellas per mnth with unlimited data, sh1t loads of texts and enough talk time to make Rebecca woods weep

    Prolly cheaper now

    I’m in the process of moving the company fleet off O2 and onto BT (Vodafone). The deal-breaker here is coverage. There is no one provider that covers everywhere, you need to find the best ones for you. Then haggle. I personally found O2 to have the worst coverage although I’ve got users who can only receive Orange.

    I’m with 3 as their plans are pretty good VFM as I get 5000 texts, 500 mins plus 2000 3 to 3 mins unlimited interwebz and free spotify (they only do it for 2 months now). I got all that with an iPhone 4s for no upfront and £30 p/m. Though I have been with them for years.
    3’s customer service isn’t great, but thankfully I have rarely had to use them other than upgrade time when they are generally quite accommodating.

    Giffgaff, £10 gets you unlimited texts, unlimited data and 250 minutes, £20 would get you the same but 800 minutes. Even paying for the phone sim free can be cheaper than the contract, but you still have the flexibility. Depends on the goodybag you need, worth a look though.

    I’m on Tesco. They also use the O2 network.

    I pay £12.50 a month for 750 minutes of talk time, about 1000000 texts and 500mb of data on a sim only deal.

    It’s been great so far too, now in month 7 with them.

    i am ditching my blackberry as it keeps going wrong. im 3 months from my upgrade date on o2 and they wont budge on changing the handset. i think a galaxy s3 would suit. whats the best provider in your experience?

    I found it was cheaper to buy the S3 outright (~£400), and move to Giffgaff (from O2). I haven’t regretted it so far, and I calculated it would save me several hundred quid over the 18 months I would have had the contract.

    It’s a superb phone BTW.

    It’s all about network coverage for me, just pick the best for your area. Buying a phone and going sim only usually works out cheaper too. Can’t get on with this new generation of phones though, that S3 is the size of my first telly!

    I can’t fault Giff Gaff. £10 for unlimited txts and internet and 250 mins of calls. No contact either.

    With Giff Gaff can you move your existing number??

    ask everyone who turns up at herts over the next week what network they’re on and check their signal level in the field of dreams before taking a contract with anyone!

    yes you can port your number, it’s a legal requirement now they have to give you PAC code within (I think ) 24 hour of requesting it.

    It took a few days to sort out the transfer of my mobile No with Giffgaff but everything seems fine so far. A few glitches (and the same prob o2 folk had with no service last month) but it seems a great deal. For £10 I rarely use up all the minutes etc and even if I did.. there’s still £10 to use on calls. A goodybag for £15 give 400 minutes and unlimited web compared to 02 with their £12.50 for 750? mins and only 500mb, its just not worth me paying for more minutes if I don’t use 250mins per month.

    £10 goodybags are now getting paid monthly through the setting on their website. Like a contract but you can sign in and cancel it if you want to get out. I think they are stressing a bit with their deal to be honest. Some folk are taking advantage of the unlimited web for £10.. so it could change.

    With Giff Gaff can you move your existing number??

    Yes – just moved my wife’s phone over. All pretty easy although a little bit of faff setting up picture messaging etc.

    Sign up via this and give me free stuff!

    +1 for GiffGaff. The data is unlimited, but they have cut a few people off (but they were downloading GBs day in day out, using their phone as a modem which is against their T&Cs)
    Me and my girlfriend are on it, we get free calls and texts to each other and any other GiffGaff users.

    Nearly went giffgaff, changed my mind at the last minute, and picked up a great deal handset and contract. I was completely shocked, reception has been fantastic and they’re really easy to deal with. Never would’ve thought it. Virgin.

    +1 for giffgaff. Both our iPhones are now on so calls between the two are free leaving plenty minutes for calling takeaways and stuff.

    I changed my Orange tariff last week and for £35 per month I got unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and loads and loads of Internetz. Had to phone Orange though, local Orange shop wouldn’t do the same deal.

    GiffGaff do unlimited texts and internet (phone capped at 1500 minutes but I can’t imagine many users going over that) for £25 a month. Any calls made over that cap are only 10p a minute too.

    I have unlimited data and pay 35 a month for HTC desire HD camera capture a bit slow Samsung is better, you can Taylor the Tmobile business package to suit your requirements. As I’m seeing you Monday I can see what the tmobile signal is like there.
