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.
