Im looking for some impartial advice, please.
I need to get a replacement for my current mobile phone. Im currently on PAYG with Orange and Im happy enough with that arrangement. I need to replace my current phone because it is very old and, recently, the battery has become unreliable. My main concern is keeping my old phone number.
Im not looking for anything fancy or feature-packed cheap and reliable are much more important criteria for me.
Can anyone give me some advice on things such as:
1) Where am I likely to pick up a good deal?
2) If I were to buy a new PAYG phone (via a special offer shown on HotUKDeals, for example) would I be able to just take the SIM card out of my old phone and put it in the new one (and, by doing so, move my existing phone number, address book, etc.) to the new phone? Presumably, as Im already with Orange Id have to get an Orange deal?
3) What should I be expecting to pay for a basic phone/PAYG deal?
4) Are there any other complications/problems that I havent even considered?
