- Need a new mobile provider.
Currently with Virgin who over the last few months have got dire.
Seem to spend more time with no coverage or crap call quality.
I know they piggyback EE but guessing they use the old kit……
We all have decent handsets so looking for SIM only deals.
Live in the Midlands and regularly go to Wales – so need coverage in those areas.
Had thought about Three which looks pretty good but don’t know anyone on that network.Posted 1 month agotimmysSubscriber
In the process of moving away from Three after many years – going to try iD mobile. I was paying £12 for 4Gb on Three which was running out occasionally – which used to be fine as I could buy a £5 bolt-on as needed to double my allowance for that month. They seem to have scrapped that now though. I would have had to go up to £19 per month to increase my data allowance.
Have gone with iD as they seemed to be the only one of the cheaper companies that do WiFi calling, which is essential for me to get calls at work. Paying £13 for 6Gb, but usefully they carry over unused data to the next month so it would be a case of most months using ~4Gb, but having 8Gb in hand for heavy months. Only thing that I can see I loose compared to Three is free roaming outside of the EU.
Would have tried Smarty if they did WiFi calling.Posted 1 month agoswedishmetalMember
I tried 3 on recommendation once and I found the coverage where I was to be pretty poor whereas EE is generally excellent and always seems to find a signal even if a low signal.
My work phone is Vodaphone and it’s generally terrible, but does very occasionally have a signal when my EE doesn’t so it goes to show it depends where you live and spend most time.
Phone make and model can make a difference too – I’ve always had iPhones but can testify that I remember getting a better signal with my XR than my previous 7. I have 2 work phones – an old Nokia and an iPhone and the iPhone does get a better signal. Not saying iPhones are better than others signal wise but newer phones do tend to be better in my experience.
If you don’t have a landline (or aren’t plugged into it like me) then a provider that does WiFi calling is great – I’ve got a decent mobile signal in my new house but the last house was terrible but the WiFi calling made it perfect, worth thinking about.Posted 1 month agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
I couldn’t say if this is the best deal for Three network, but it looks interesting to me, unlimited data/calls/texts prepaid for 3 months if I understand the deal correctly… £51.50, ~£17.17pcm (which is better than the 12- or 24- month unlimted Three contracts last time I looked).
Thinking about buying above myself to replace the soon to be out of contract Plusnet landline BB, ditching landline phone and landland BB, putting SIM in either a router or a cheap Wi-fi hotspot 4G mobile such as the Nokia “banana” https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nokia-8110-4G-Single-Sim-Yellow/dp/B07FY7HRHF?th=1
Don’t forget to check Topcashback and Quidco for your Amazon purchases, on both these days (but more awkward to select correct genre than most websites)!Posted 1 month ago
