  2. Sorry to hear about your problem, glad you've got it sorted now. I also got my S2 via buymobilephones.net but on the three network instead. Gotta say they've been absolutely superb so far. I received the phone the next day and everywhere I've been so far the three network has been blazingly fast :)

    yeah it was a toss up between 3 and t-mobile and i know in the past that 3 probably wasn't the best network to go thru - i guess its a different story these days!

    its a shame that buymobilephones.net advertise their 'unlimited internet booster' as the same as what you'd get from t-mobile - when it actually isn't at all and capped at 370Kbps which iirc was what i was getting earlier...

    anyways its all fixed now and nice and fast - i was wondering why i wasn't able to watch the F1 practice sessions earlier on bbc and youtube was buffering all the time :thinking: should have checked it much earlier but it just didn't click...
  4. Damn they were good to you. Been hearing some horror stories about Tmobile customer service today.

    I bought my S2 through Phones4u and I am on o2, seem to be getting full speeds where the signal will allow. Last phone was through CPW and they are fine also on o2.

    i was just as polite as possible - explained that i thought my phones connection was slow - did a speedtest and realised it was way below par - went online and googled 'slow internet t-mobile buymobilehones.net' and saw that t-mobile dont allow 3rd pty's to use the same bolt-ons and that i wanted to purchase the bolt-on that allowed me to have full internet access - he then said he'd do it for free and add unlimited texts to my contract.
