I'm at then end of my contract with o2, and have been looking around at tariffs offered by other networks. One that has caught my eye is the £15 Texter tariff by 3 which is an 18 month contract and offers 75 minutes of calls and 600 texts. For an extra £2.50 I can also get 10mb of data useage, which is pretty handy, I like to regularly check the football scores on the weekend. With that deal is a Nokia 6120, which seems like a nifty Symbian phone (never had a smart phone before, wouldn't mind seeing what it could offer me)
What are Three like as a network provider these days? I know a friend of mine was on their service about 3 years ago and used legal threats to get out of his contract after about 3 months. Poor service, dropped calls, phones that lasted a day before the battery died etc... Have they improved at all in the past few years?
Ideally I'd like to stay on O2 but after speaking to one of their customer service people the other day they are playing hardball over my yearly handset upgrade. Course they might fold when I get through to disconnections, but its nice to have a back-up plan ready just in-case.
edit: oh by the way, at the moment I'm paying O2 £15 a month, that gets me 200 minutes and 400 texts and 1mb of data allowance. The other day they offerered me a 24 month contract (no) with 50 minutes and 200 texts for £15.
