leaving o2, whats the best
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.Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years agoInternational RichardMember
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!

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.Posted 5 years agomuggomagicSubscriber
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.Posted 5 years ago
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.sambobMember
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.Posted 5 years agomartinxyzMember
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.Posted 5 years agomastiles_fanylionMember
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)Posted 5 years ago
Me and my girlfriend are on it, we get free calls and texts to each other and any other GiffGaff users.
