    Getting my first real smartphone, so I want to make the right decision on which network to get it on....

    I heard they all vary a lot in terms of 3G speeds, but can anyone tell me if this is really the case?

    I might go onto orange, can anyone give their two cents on this network?

    Thanks!

    Have you considered how much data you will be using?

    I think most networks no longer do unlimited data, although I think 3 still do so it may be worth looking at them. Not sure about the quality of the 3G though, I'm with Vodafone which is very good but expensive compared to similar deals on other networks.

    I've just transferred from Orange to GiffGaff (O2 network), and I have to say there's really not much (if any) difference in 3G speed OR coverage. Both offered my unlimited data, but with the latter i'm only paying a tenner a month...
