Three & its partner in Mobile Broadband Network Limited = T-Mobile merged with Orange - I think you will find 3 soon will have the best signal going - Orange roaming on 3 already has FULL internet access with the T/O merger like the good old days of o2 roaming.

MBNL that owned the backhaul & sites for 3 & 2G/3G for T-Mob was 50/50 owned by 3 & T-Mobile, now its 50/50 3 & Everywhere Everything - the new company that owns Orange & T-Mobile 50/50.

Three wiped thier arse with Orange roaming - the merger gave them better wholesale via T-Mobile & 3's joint company or else 3 could have stopped the merger through its 50% share of MBNL that owned 100% of T-Mobile old backhaul, as it does 100% of 3's backhaul that were rolled into MBNL.

orange signal where i live is rubbish too, t-mobile isn't much better so for me it's like mixing horse and cow poo together, it's just a bigger mixture of poo

So you have a bad 3 signal, bad 2G & 3G signal on both Orange & T-Mobile......

Yip likely a three hater !

Perhaps you would share your postcode to clarify ALL 3 networks fail you ?

I'm an ex 3 customer, ex Vodafone, ex o2, ex Virgin, ex T-Mobile & currently bedded with Orange (for UMA where ever wifi is I have a signal) I rubbish the networks on the truth...the monkeys mainly employed by thier call centres....Vodafone ALL outsourced, 3 in India, T-Mobile liars/now Manila.....

I hate all them equally at customer service level....but the Exec Office at Orange are stars I tell you, it even pops up on my a/c when I call Orange that I MUST be taken care of - thanks Exec Office Orange :D

I paid £285 for my Desire 3 weeks ago from O2.
I pay virtually nothing for my Orange contract as it was a 17mths @£3/m 18mth E2Save deal after cashback, selling handset <£1/month.

While this might attract very heavy users, to a Network with appalling customer service and patchy network, they are still asking, over 2 years, for [SIZE=6]£840[/SIZE] of your money, laughable imo, so cold.

3's network where I live in East Yorkshire is not patchy, I travel the East Riding and have used all netowrks , 3 has had the best overall coverage plus 3g majority of the time

Same here in Lancashire - Three's 3G everywhere I go. Was on holiday in Snowdonia a couple of weeks ago and got 3G there, too (Llanberis).

The only time I have a problem with 3G is in the Lake District and other hilly areas, where most networks are patchy. In Cartmel (South Lakes) the only network I can get is Orange GPRS - but Three gives you that as well!

Different networks have patchy coverage in some areas. Find what suits you, but don't assume a network is bad because you don't get it in your area. And particularly don't assume it's bad because you could n't get reception a couple of years ago.

These days, in general, there is probably more difference in reception between different phones than different networks (ahem, iPhone 4)

Gets a big slice of ICE from me this one!
3 Mobile...wouldnt touch em with a barge pole....even if they paid me.
Not that long ago they passed their old customers' details to "RED DEBT COLLECTION" who are some dodgy outfit that then prey on and threaten ex-3 Mobile (and allegedly T Mobile) customers with a barrage of letters saying they'll take you to court and CCJ you for what they claim is an upaid bill. I and others online (check moneysavingexpert forum) had letters claiming money was owing from 3 or 4 years prior !.
They did one when I called their bluff and reported them for haressment. They claimed I owed 3 Mobile around £12. I'm sure some people would just pay this but it's the principle when you KNOW that you owe them sweet FA.
So best of luck with 3 chaps!. Personally this deal would be better for me if posted on loo roll and I could then make at least some use of it!.
#13
Forgot to add by the way...when I spoke to 3 Mobile about Red Debt Collection they confirmed they'd sold on old debts to them and said as far as they're concerned the matter is "with you and Red Debt Collection" and not our problem!!!. They wouldnt even discuss the matter or provide any kind of evidence for the debt or even their efforts to collect such a debt.
Add to this their quality Indian call centres that really make you feel like an appreciated customer...not - I'm amazed 3 mobile still exist in this current economic climate.
Oh and to add...I was one of the first adopters of the all singing all dancing 3 Mobile 3G video calling - what a joke that was!. The phones were better than any handheld weapon of self defence I've ever seen...wouldnt be surprised if the Police confiscated these phones at Football matches in case they were used to clout opposition supporters!.
Down with 3! You suck the Llama's @ss!

RE: Debt Collectors, it is their legal obligation to provide you with evidence of the debt, no evidence = you can negate and invalidate the claim I believe.

What a lot of rubbish you talk. Three have an excellent network now. I get an excellent phone and broadband signal anywhere I go. I would never use any other network now.

it's not excellent for me, hence being on o2


Would that be the same O2 that (as confirmed by ofcom) has the worst 2g and 3g coverage in the UK? Has a network thats overloaded? That as said by the CEO that they are struggling to update their network? :whistling:

Look, the SIM-only version of this deal is hot. This deal extends that over two years and gives you an HTC Desire for £240 interest free. So, why is this not hot again?

24x £35 is £840
12x £25 is £300
thats a difference of £540 not £240

True, couchwarrior. But if you read what I wrote, "...it extends it to two years and gives you an HTC Desire..."

What I meant was that to compare the two you have to look at the costs of a service over two years, in which case the difference is £240 for the phone. Simples!

I realise 24 month contracts are a pain but you just cannot compare a phone deal over two years with a SIM-only deal over one year. What are you supposed to do during the second year? Send smoke signals?
