I think they are having serious network problems lately. Switch to tmobile permanently in settings, assuming u have opted in for the shared network. But note this will leave u with only 2g signal

Vodafone have had a massive problem today so not certain if this has had any knock on effect, ie, more traffic on Orange network as a result?

Vodafone's mobile network has been disrupted following a break-in at its exchange centre in Basingstoke.

The company said that several hundred thousand customers had lost voice, text and internet access.

Burglars hit the facility in the early hours of Monday morning, stealing computer equipment and network hardware.

Most of the users affected were in the M4 corridor area, to the west of London

In a statement, Vodafone said: "We had a break in last night at one of our technical facilities which resulted in damage done to some of our equipment.

"We are working quickly to restore these and will be back to normal as soon as we can."

The company added that there had been no impact on the security of customers' private information.

Yes I have, but going to 2G means that I lose my internet is that right?

No, but you would get it at a much slower speed.

Wrong, T-Mobile and Orange are not sharing data at the moment, and only can use each others 2G signals for voice and text.
