Why, when 3's service is better?

Why, when 3's service is better?



Coverage mate, 2G 1800mhz has more chance of indoor penetration over 4G at 1800mhz, so people might get to use their mobile indoors, remember 3's 2100mhz coverage before it got into bed with T-Mobile ? 3 should get even better over the next few years with 800mhz, 1800mhz and 2100 MHz but none of them run 2G, Orange roaming is not allowed where 3 think you should have a signal to call/text, at least with a EE 2G signal you most probably will over 3.

I'll be off to Vectone myself as soon as 3 remove my One Plan tethering

"Many great deals and options and bonuses that make 3 payg look expensive!"

Em, I'm not seeing it sorry. With the Feel At Home feature, Three is far better value for me. The lack of 4G data is another negative. Voted hot though for those that don't travel abroad much.

Granted, but this is for 2G coverage aswell as 3G in the UK, plenty offers on the website - £30 free credit porting in, 1p international calls, bundles from 99p for 33 mins/texts/mb for the month upto £15 for unlimited UK call and texts (FUP 3GB then 2G speeds) free calls to Delight customers on their Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Austria networks, free data on every top up, free Delight to Delight calls and texts for NO top up!

Click on offers in the top bar of the homepage

3Feel@Home defo works if you are a regular roamer, but better offers for mainly UK'ers at Delight it seems.

Thanks for the heat tho

I have just been looking at the T&C's

delightmobile.co.uk/Vie…spx

Delight mobile reserves the right to withdraw or suspend the Services or to disconnect you if we suspect that offer is being used for commercial purposes, for conferencing, or if it is not being used in a handset (in a SIM box for example), or if it is being used for tethering.

Is there somewhere else that says they allow tethering?

Its EE supplied... don't mind tethering except on T-Mobile pay monthly with unlimited data plans... your guess is as good as mine, get a free sim and buy the £3 bundle someone and report back for CrazyBob.

Vectone/Mundio have been going since 1999, fear not

Can't find anything on the website, except for the treats which lasts 30 days.

Do normal top ups behave like Three's which do not expire at the end of 30 days?

Does the free £30 have an expiry date...I have a Vodafone sim with £10 that I don't use this would be great way to get better value...I wonder if this can be used to top up my Playstation Store Account

If this is the case might be useful as a emergency sim and also gives life to phones that can't be used with Three

Original Poster

fizz I think the £30 is bonus credit and can only be used for calls/texts/data, not sure about expiry tho!

Top-ups balances just sit in your account like the other telcos, unless you buy the 30 day bundles that is.


I don't have time but the Terms are here:

delightmobile.co.uk/Vie…spx





Be careful ... They charged me £2 for not even 3 minutes call to 101 (police number) !!! I spoken to their customer service and sent -emails to them many times without luck.

All the networks have basic payg plans, you just need to find them as they have moved to marketing a bundle these days, any chargeable unit on a sim keeps it active with its credit for 6 months, even 3 will cut you off after 6 months with no use - its in 3's terms.

I still have bonus credit on Vectone from 6+ months ago, it didn't expire...may be the same for Delight ?

Thanks, I'll speak to support, the delight to delight for free is great for me wife and my mother in law, they can talk all day and I won't be nagged X)

Looks good,plenty of options on the website.

spoken to customer service, non english speaking with little command of the english language

the £30 is credited a 1000 minutes per month and expires at the end of each month and you have to topup each month £10 to get the 1000 minutes

normal topup doesn't expire, but bundle do after 30 days

Well surely you don't need a top up lol, I wouldn't be sure about that mate - plenty more time at no costs for the wife to get back up about you not meeting the required standards about things she probably would have let slide before - devils advocate - it might get worse! lol Perhaps 3's Zero plan would be more effective on your health than the finances, you get what you pay for after all

Thanks for the heads up OP, good option for 2g phones.

Exactly!. Welcome Elizabeth

Can you use call forwarding on Delight Mobile? Is that at 3p per minute?

Looked on their website and asked them, but no info and no response.

Hi
Has anyone been able to get the £10 x 3 bonus bundles by topping up just £5 rather than £10?

Call the network you left and see if the port has gone through at their end correctly, how long have you been waiting ?

It did go through OK because I was able to receive calls on the ported number briefly on the delight sim. Then they got my money and I've been without phone for > 24 hours.

What did Delight say when you called them ? Id be calling both networks for info... its a 2 way port process.

Original Poster

Is your network set to automatic and roaming switched on ? EE use old T-Mobile and Orange networks that transmit on 2 different network codes. If you have no signal on T-Mobile/EE signal it may not roam to the old Orange EE signal now (or vice versa) to connect to the EE patched up 2 network.

Sometimes you have to manually search and select either network if signal is very poor on both the old TMOB & Orange base stations in your area.
Edited by: "seaniboy" 30th Dec 2015

Thanks, I don't think it's a roaming thing because the message I get when dialling my number is "You have dialled an incorrect number" rather than "we could not connect your number".

Not been able to call delight, I emailed them yesterday

Says they get back within 24 hours, if its past that call them 07892111202, 8-8pm.


support@delightmobile.co.uk email for anyone needing such

Edited by: "seaniboy" 30th Dec 2015

Thanks, it's looking like a split port. I can make calls but not receive them. Same for texts. Orange (donor) say they've done everything they should have, so I just need delight to respond

Commiseration I've had the same happen, I've also had Vodafone bill me for uk - uk texts whilst I was roaming abroad, I had UK unlimited texts and it got sent to debt collection...


Networks customer care in communicating seems to be absolutely horrendous esp if its not on a script either UK or overseas.


Definitely is a EE problem as its a internal port from EE to a EE reseller. Something is amiss, I guess EE just give access to Delight and Delight own outgoing server is not set up properly, or EE's if they just pure resell outgoing capacity bought from EE.

Give them a call tomorrow, keep us updated
