    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.

    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.
