    Hi i’m 19 and my first mobile sim-only contract is coming up to it’s first year - the contract length, and i could phone and cancel it now if i want to.

    it’s on Three mobile. I get 300 minutes, 3000 texts, and 1GB internet for £10 a month.

    The thing is, I live right on the edge of a city - next to a load of fields, so I don’t get much signal on Three at all. the maximum is about 2 out of 5 bars, and sometimes it likes to cut out on calls. it’s a great reasonably priced contract, but it’s not really much good if it drops calls sometimes.

    Before, i was on O2 pay & go. it was great because it always had signal. I’ve been looking at O2 sim only plans and there’s one with 600 minutes, unlimited texts, and 500MB data for £15.50 a month.

    i only use about 50 minutes a month so it won’t benefit me much, and as for the internet, at the moment i use about 400/500mb a month.

    I don’t know what to do though. Do I pay £5.50 extra a month to get good signal and 300 extra minutes worth, or do I stay paying £10 a month and have a few dropped calls?

    thanks!

    GiffGaff: works of O2 signal, essentially pay as you go, but you can buy monthly goody bags, the £10 gets you 250 minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited internets... Also calls to people on that network are free and 0800 numbers are also free

    You need to ask yourself. How many "dropped calls" make paying an extra £5.50p really worth it?

    Most people understand if you need to call them back.

    Meh,

    Definitely Giff Gaff. Uses 02 and the £10 deal more than matches what you already have.

    Carphone Warehouse also has a Giffgaf like thing which is ridiculously cheap.
