Orange Contract Dilema

I am in a huge dilema. I have a contract that is expiring in August so I can cancel the contract and call retentions and get a pretty good deal. But the problem that is for 18 months of my contract the orange service around my house has been terrible. Literally it only works in my room and I cannot call anyone else from anywhere else, and it only seems to be getting worse. However the temptation of a brand new phone at a lower price is very big. I was just wondering, if orange were to offer me a deal, could I go to a vodaphone store or a o2 store or even t mobile store (networks I want to be on) and tell them orange has offered me this deal will you match it?. Preferably I want a brand new phone, with 600 mins unlimited texts and internet for £20-£25. Today my friend called up retentions and got the HTC HD with 600 mins unlimited net and texts for £25 a month, and no haggling necessary, just said (lied) she saw that deal somewhere else for £25 so match it or leave, and they did. Any feedback will be appreciated.

might be worth getting a blackberry. I am in pretty much the same situation but the reception I get on the blackberry is good throughout the house. The curve 8900 is a good phone in my opinion. They offer a 7 day change of mind policy so you can try it out. Hope this helps.

on normal phones do you get really bad signal? when i mean bad, I mean when I am downstairs I have no bars, and rarely get 1 which might last for a minute then go.

1st Orange are well known to have the weakest signal of everyone
do not stay with them !!!!
i had the same problem with 3 worked everywhere but as soon as i went into my house out went the signal.
for a tip, buy a few pay and go sim cards most do them for around 1 or 2 pound each and try the signals


3 now use orange as a backbone to their network

Yeah, when my contract was up, they talked me into getting an LG sommit - I sent it back, couldn't even get a signal in my house. Got the curve, no problem with it.
