Default Orange - Never Again

I went back to Orange last year, thinking that the network would be better since the T-Mobile merger.

I live in South Wales and it 'appears' the network is good (4 bars), but seriously it is dire. Missed calls when I apparently have a good signal, plus text messages 24 hours later!

That bad I paid to end the contract 10 months into a 24 month contract.

Vodafone are good so far, also my o2 SIM is good, but if I must recommend a network I would go with Voda.

ive been with orange now for about 2 years, i am getting a bit frustrated with them as well, you would think after they merged things would be better but i have seen no improvement in signal, my internet is by biggest issue, i have a htc desire which was always supposed to have a fast internet connection, i know people who have normal iphones (not even iphone 4's) and i have tried to load pages side by side and sometimes mine has loaded instantly but other times it feels like i am waiting ages, compared to theirs (on o2) theres just always seems to load instantly with no wait, and because i use the net a lot it just really annoys me.

I have my desire till october this year, im really not sure whether to stay with orange, as i am guessing its orange thats slow not my phone! im unsure whether to go with o2 as their phones seem very fast on the net, although i am on the dolphin 30 package (18 month) which is 30 per month, for that i get 300 mins, 500mb data and unlimited texts.

the closest on o2 offer on a 18 month contract is: 300 mins, unlimited text and 500mb data for 37
I know its not a massive difference, but for the exact same feature as what i get from orange i dont think id be prepared to pay an extra 7 per month so i can have slightly better internet, if o2 could offer that same offer for the exact same price id change to them right away though.

i guess come oct i could always phone o2 and say can you do me a deal and offer me something similar and see what they say.

You do realise you could of got out of that contract for free, right? I had the same problem with Orange, I'm also from south Wales! I hassled them and hassled about my problems, but they kept coming up with a different excuse every time! So I phoned ofcom, and they got me a number to the executive office in Orange, within 10th mins my contract was cancelled, for free! no more Orange for me!!!!
I'm now with Tesco mobile, and have a desire HD, they run off o2 network, but there deals are way better than o2, go figure?? I get 750 mins, unlimited texts and 1gb data for 30 quid! Amazing deal! Well at the time it was anyway!
