Hi all,

I have been with Orange (now EE) for about 8 years and the service is horrific to be fair; they don't reward loyalty and their customer service is bad (they overcharged me £200 on a bill and took 4 months to give it back)...

I have started a new job recently and unlucky for me EE is the only network that does not work in the area I work at (I don't need my phone at work, but lunchtime or if I am going out for a drink afterwork I need it)...

Anyway I was thinking of Vodafone or 02? Which one is better in your opinion? I go abroad a few times a year and EE abroad was quite good, are the other networks the same?

Thanks for your input in advance

I personally think o2 are the best, I loved the Priority Moments app and the network's generally quite good . I'm with EE now, and I'm hating it. I'm going back to o2 as soon as this contract's up.


Too bawse for you, sir.

o2 is good, but also check out www.giffgaff.com - they're great (they use the o2 signal so you will get signal).

Oh it should be noted that o2 raise the prices on your contracts sometimes (during your contract). They're never too drastic though, I'm sure mine only went up by about 20pence this year.

If you are done with EE, move gradually to EF and then if you are ready for the leap FF

Don't go with vodafone. They're the reason Ovivo shut down.

I'm with 3 at the moment, but then I'm on PAYG, which I'm guessing you don't want to do.

So I'm on giffgaff and it's awesome.. I pay £20 and get unlimited internet and texts, and a ridiculous amount of minutes.

You can also text and call giffgaff to giffgaff for free, even if you haven't topped up for 3 months :')

Obviously there are cheaper deals but i thought since you had 20GB of data before, I'd mention the 'deal' closest to your own usage.

Also, you get £5 free credit when you order a sim from this link.

Https://giffgaff.com/orders/affiliate/pb_1306

I really would recommend it, good luck!

I use o2 and it's may favourite from the ones I've experienced, I love o2 priority and have probably saved the equivalent of about half a years worth contract using it

In terms of internationally their European situation is fairly good from my perspective but I don't go abroad very often...

What is 02 priority?

I am with 3 at the moment and I am due an upgrade next week? 3 are good but I am exploring my options.

How do you find 02. They are very expensive I must add!

I've been with Three for about four years now. They do offer very competitive deals especially their unlimited data plans. However the trouble with Three is that you either live in an area with great connection, or an area with reception so bad you can't even dial 999.

I left EE for virgin - virgin are on the same network, so you get signal basically everywhere. I've not had any complaints so far.

Three are not that cheap anymore

They have also gotten rid of unlim data. You can only get it on their £50+ price plans

O2 priority has two parts: 1) you can get tickets to some sports/music events before main release and 2) they have partners which offer deals so things like 20% a shop, pizza lunch for £1, my favourite was a photo calendar for £1 etc

I love o2, its most reliable for me and wherever I have gone in England I always have at least some signal! I think their contact plans suit me (obviously not everyone but imo). And its fairly easy to find some better prices depending how flexible you are/ whether you are prepared to phone them :top:
