orange is the best network.

You can drop pay as you go accounts whenever you want, because theres no contract. The phone might be locked though if you bought it from a network.

Get orange pay as you go if you text a lot. You can get the text package where you pay £20 with that you get £5 credit, and then you get 5 free texts a day for a year. It works out pretty cheap. otherwise Virgin is pretty average for pay as you go but their customer services are very good, if you spend over a certain amount a month you get a bonus the next month and if you have a friend on a virgin mobile its 5p per text to text them. Also if you register online you get free itemised billing online.

T-Mobile is cheapest for calls, if you put 20 quid or more on top ups, then all your call charges are 10p a minute, regardless of whom you call, what network they are on, or what time of day. Yes 10p at all times!!!!

Yep, just under Adhsur. :rolleyes:

With Virgin though, you never have to topup and calls are just 15p for the first 5 minutes, then 5p for the rest of the day. Also, Virgin give you free voicemail, very cheap text messages and free 0800 numbers to charities etc.

Yes, but its only to other Virgin mobiles and landlines. There is another seperate charge if you ring other networks. I work in a phone shop, so it does help. :rolleyes:

btw Nope cant find my name there. *sigh*

Not really no, you can try to dispute it and refuse to pay but they will prob stick to their story. Get one of your parents to ring up and speak to a supervisor at their customer services. I still get my dad to ring if I ring and dont get anywhere.

They can reimburse you pay as you go minutes onto your phone. They can just do it electronically but you would need an itemised bill to prove it.
