    I remember when THREE first came out they got slated for their coverage and quality of calls.

    All these years on are they any better?

    3 has gone a lot better... but I carry 3 sim cards, vodafone, 02, and 3g. I think o2's the best, but 3 has more benefits for a cheaper value. Also, you can juggle girls with these (not literally).

    I think they have a coverage map thing on their website.

    It's no good in my area.

    There coverage is OK but the signal does have a tendancy to just drop all of a sudden, which is annoying :l

    I'm moving to O2...

    Their signal has been fine for me, it's the same as the Orange coverage in my area and they're the only two that do cover it. It's their customer service that was **** for me. They took ages to repair my phone, whilst my Dad who is on Orange got a new replacement phone the next day.

    I'm moving to Orange next month.

    I am planning to go SIM only so hopefully wont need to use their repair service

    I have heard them mainly get slated for sales technique and not living up to deals/ fixing problems

    I might get a PYG SIM and try it out.

    A lot of my friends complained with the 3 coverage. :dontknow: They lost it when they went to areas with tall buildings. But I think it has gone better. Orange was the same with some other ppl.
