I am aware of three poor customer service, although orange aren't great either, but is it worth getting it on orange if it cant access a hspa+ network?

Finally, as orange are saying they aren't stocking the phone, is this a sign that orange doesn't support HSPA+?
There's a little info on the sharing thing here. If that is to be believed it looks as though 3/TMob don't share the network, but they are part of a consortium that maintain the network (MBNL)?

The Atrix is 4G and Orange stocked that so I don't think that can be classed as sign that they're not supporting HSPA+

Might be worth giving them a call though, get a definitive answer.
